Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that works to reduce the signs of aging and provide a more youthful facial appearance. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this cosmetic treatment can produce impressive results.
The microneedling procedure involves using a state-of-the-art, medical-grade device to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. The microscopic wounds trigger the body’s natural healing process, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The result is a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars.
For most patients, microneedling is a comfortable experience, thanks to the strong topical anesthetic we apply before the procedure. Dr. Mobley frequently recommends microneedling for men and women who seek a quick and effective approach for a refreshed, rejuvenated, younger-looking facial appearance.
In addition, some Beauty Now patients undergo the procedure to combat fine lines and wrinkles as they appear, turning to microneedling as a preemptive approach to aging.
To further enhance your experience at Mobley MD you should meet Kandice, our RN and Aesthetician. She has been an aesthetician for 13 years. After graduating from Aesthetics school in 2004 and later earning a Masters license, she worked in high-end resorts such as The Canyons and Waldorf Astoria. Kandice rounded out her skills with an RN degree in 2014, and experience in home health.
Kandice has one young man in her life, and spends most of her free time with him going to parks and playing sports. She also loves wine tasting, hot yoga, camping and hiking, and goes as frequently as she can.
Microneedling can help erase signs of aging to give men and women younger-looking skin. Collagen induction therapy also improves skin texture and firmness, and patients often report a reduction in pore size and facial scars.
To achieve these goals, most patients require a series of treatment sessions — typically less than an hour each — spaced about four to six weeks apart. The number of sessions depends upon the skin’s condition as well as the patient’s overall skin-care goals. The results of microneedling can last six months or longer with an effective home skin-care regimen.
Microneedling is effective for the treatment of aging skin on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. And because the needles are so tiny, the procedure is safe for all skin types and tones — even darker skin that is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation, or darkening, with large-needle injections.
For optimal skin rejuvenation, Dr. Mobley often recommends combining microneedling with other cosmetic treatments. Physician-grade skin care products can help extend the results of the procedure, and alternating microneedling with DermaSweep facials can be an effective approach to maintaining younger-looking skin.
The price of microneedling treatment with Dr. Mobley and the Beauty Now team ranges from $200 to $250, depending upon the complexity of the procedure. Most patients require a few treatment sessions, roughly every four to six weeks, to achieve the desired results. To maintain those results, additional microneedling treatment may be necessary in four to six months.
The effects of microneedling last longer in patients who stick to a regular daily skin-care regimen. Dr. Mobley recommends using physician-grade products from PCA Skin, SkinBetter Science and/or EltaMD, although the right products for you will depend on your individual skin-care needs.
Many patients benefit from combining microneedling with DermaSweep facials or other cosmetic procedures. While this approach increases the cost of treatment, it’s often the best route to a rejuvenated, younger-looking facial appearance.
