Microneedling is a technique that entails using many tiny needles to microscopically puncture the skin in order to trigger collagen production and stimulate optimal circulation. In turn – the renewed collagen production helps to keep your skin firm and supple. Dr. Erick Sanchez uses this treatment to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, ranging from acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin pigmentation issues. Microneedling is a highly safe minimally invasive procedure that has been around since the 90s and is very effective for improving skin tightness and smoothness.
Who is a candidate for micro-needling?
Microneedling – also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy – is a non-surgical treatment for addressing common aesthetic skin issues. You may be a good candidate for micro-needling if you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment to address cosmetic issues such as fine lines, stretch marks, sun damage, uneven skin texture, and moderately loose skin. This treatment may not be an ideal fit for individuals who are pregnant or have keloid scarring, fungal infections, scleroderma, immune suppression, eczema, psoriasis, and other chronic skin conditions.
Benefits of micro-needling
Microneedling cosmetic treatment offers a number of unique advantages:
- Adjustable needles enable targeting of skin with different textures and thickness
- Increases skin’s ability to absorb topical creams and anti-aging serums
- Can be used on different parts of the body including the face, neck, back, hands, and stomach
- Reduces fine lines and triggers a robust and radiant skin appearance
- Helps alleviate sun damage
- Quick treatment (about 30 minutes long)
- Usually painless with no downtime
- Can be combined with injectable fillers or surgical treatments
What to expect during and after your micro needling treatment in Baton Rouge?
Microneedling is a fairly quick outpatient procedure that is completed in Dr. Erick Sanchez’s Baton Rouge office. The surgeon will apply a topical numbing cream in the area being treated and cleanse the skin before applying a microneedling handpiece. Once the microneedling is complete, other complementary treatments such as PRP may be used to achieve an even better outcome. It is not uncommon for patients to experience mild swelling and redness about a day after the microneedling procedure. It may take up to two months for the collagen supply to renew and manifest as visible improvements in the health and appearance of the skin.
How much does microneedling cost in Baton Rouge?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that does not use fillers or chemicals. The cost of this treatment will vary based on the specifics of the treatment. Dr. Sanchez’s office will be able to provide an individualized cost estimate based on the unique needs and goals of your treatment.
