Microneedling - St. Louis
Microneedling stimulates healthy skin tone and texture and helps minimize wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, scars, loose skin, UV damage, and stretch marks. Precisely-spaced, sterile needles create thousands of tiny perforations in the skin. As the skin begins repairing these perforations, the body produces larger amounts of collagen and elastin, leading to skin that is firmer, stronger, and more supple.

Who is a good candidate?
The microneedling device is gently applied to your skin. You may request some numbing cream for pain reduction if you’d like, but many patients find the procedure tolerable. It is often described as a light scratching, similar to a microdermabrasion treatment.
Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are alternatives to microneedling. Microneedling can also be used in conjunction with other topical treatments.
Microneedling has a short recovery time. You may experience redness or slight swelling of your skin for up to three days following your procedure, but most patients apply normal makeup and resume their routine the very next day.
You may be a candidate for this procedure if:
You would like to reduce the appearance of scars, pore size, stretch marks, wrinkles, UV damage, or rosacea; you want your skin to have more bounce and elasticity; you are looking for greater skin improvements than a facial can offer; you’re interested in a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure, and you would like a treatment with a quick recovery time.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Microneedling creates tiny punctures in your skin. To repair these micro-tears, the skin produces collagen and elastin. By using the skin’s self-repairing process, the natural healing properties of the body are harnessed to improve skin tone and texture. The result is glowing skin that lasts four to six weeks longer than a traditional facial. Experience this treatment in a plastic surgeon’s office where health, sterility, and safety is paramount.
