What is microneedling?

If over-the-counter skin care products are no longer providing you with so-so results, learn more about our treatments to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling with the Dermapen. Our team at Jansen Plastic Surgery is happy to perform microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at in New Orleans, LA. Microneedling uses many fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the appearance and health of your skin. Easily performed with other treatments like vitamin serums, microneedling can help reduce pores, scars, and stretch marks. Make an appointment for a consultation at Jansen Plastic Surgery to discover more about microneedling and how we can customize your Dermapen treatment to meet your needs and goals.

Your microneedling results

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 – 6 treatments (spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 – 12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.

Microneedling FAQS

Is there any downtime?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

Can I combine treatments?

Are you wondering how soon you can have a DermaPen microneedling treatment after a dermal filler or muscle relaxant injection? While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen treatments counteract with any particular injectable, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning on having one done in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.

Is microneedling painful?

For minimal needle depths, Dermapen treatments are relatively painless. Treatments using depths over 0.5mm may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will render the treatment virtually pain-free.
