There are several options for patients looking for non-invasive methods that restore the look of youthful vitality. One of the most effective is microneedling. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery offers microneedling for men and women looking for cosmetic skin enhancement.
While microneedling is the process of creating superficial wounds, it is a highly effective way to stimulate collagen for healthier, thicker, smoother, and more radiant skin.
Other facial surgeries and non-surgical laser treatments can cause side effects that last days or weeks. Microneedling, however, creates a youthful appearance with no downtime.
Because microneedling produces collagen and elastin, the treated area becomes stronger and more flexible. This helps prevent laxity and other skin damage that may occur. CIT is known to prevent many signs of aging.
Microneedling causes the skin to produce new collagen, a structural protein that helps hold the skin together. This means that the new skin tissues will be far less likely to wrinkle or sag.
Several factors can cause wrinkles, but the most significant one is the loss of collagen and elastin. These proteins are produced in higher concentrations after microneedling procedures, smoothing out wrinkles in the treated area.
Microneedling has been used to effectively treat:
Microneedling is also known to help with facial concerns, such as:
Non-surgical treatments result in no scarring, do not require anesthesia, and require no recovery time.
Facelift surgery can treat:
As a surgical procedure, a facelift will result in scars within the hairline. A facelift also includes a recovery period of at least two weeks.
Facelift surgery requires anesthesia to be performed safely.
Patients may immediately return to daily activities.
You should expect slight redness or minor swelling for a few hours after treatment. For best results, patients should keep their treated skin out of direct sunlight for up to 2 days
Any slight tingling, swelling, redness, or tenderness should fade by this point. You should expect the beginning of a youthful glow.
Results may begin to appear within 2 weeks. Final results may take 4 to 6 weeks to fully develop as collagen development occurs.

Microneedling is safe. While all procedures come with some chance of complications, microneedling rarely has any adverse side effects. In rare cases, complications may occur, such as:
The results of microneedling can have significant effects over quite a long time. Most patients who desire long-term effects choose to get periodic treatments to maintain their results.
With periodic sessions every four to six months, microneedling results can last for many years.
Results may last four to six weeks or patients who only want a single treatment.
Patients should help maintain their results with a diligent at-home skincare routine.
Yes. Unlike many other non-surgical skin solutions, microneedling works well on all skin types and tones. This is a major advantage of microneedling compared to treatments such as lasers or chemical peels.
Preparation for microneedling is simple. Patients should avoid shaving or applying any form of topical creams to the area for a day before treatment. Patients should also refrain from laser or IPL and tanning beds for at least a week before their appointment.
