Microneedling: stimulate natural collagen production

At Fountain of You MD, we offer microneedling in Virginia Beach because the loss of collagen is the primary reason for sagging skin, loss of elasticity, and the eventual formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a fibrous protein that acts as glue for your skin. It binds your skin tissues together and holds them upright against the force of gravity. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. The loss of collagen also affects your body’s ability to heal properly, which results in acne scars and textural irregularities that don’t go away.

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that activates collagen production to reverse the signs of aging. Microneedling involves using a specialized device to make thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface. Your body responds to these micro-injuries by activating the healing process, which involves skin cell regeneration and collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to fill out the acne scars, smoothen away wrinkles, and make your skin look firmer and more youthful. We use SkinPen to customize the treatment according to each individual’s unique skin type.

Boost your microneedling results with PRP

We can also perform PRP therapy with microneedling to boost the results. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of the healing activities in the body. When you’re injured or wounded, for example, the growth factors in your blood rush to the injured site to stimulate collagen production, blood clot formation, and skin cell regeneration, thereby healing the wound.

Our cosmetic providers can draw a small sample of your blood, isolate and purify the PRP serum, and apply it to the targeted areas after your microneedling in Virginia Beach. The microneedling treatment will increase your skin’s receptivity to serums. And the PRP serum will focus on the growth factors’ healing properties in the targeted areas. Combining PRP with microneedling will boost the results, making your body produce more collagen fibers and new skin cells faster.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin

Your microneedling experience

During your microneedling treatment, the cosmetic provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The SkinPen device will be used to make thousands of micro-punctures on your skin’s surface in all the treatment areas. You might experience a little pain and discomfort, but it’s tolerable. The entire treatment should conclude within 90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment areas.

Side effects similar to a mild sunburn

Microneedling is an extremely safe treatment that produces side effects similar to a mild sunburn. Your skin will look red, swollen, tender, and slightly bruised, and you’ll have to apply sunscreen to protect yourself. But the side effects usually dissipate within two days.

Resume your daily activities immediately

You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your microneedling session. However, you should avoid direct sunlight and strenuous physical activities until the side effects fade away completely, which should take around two days.

Cumulative results over multiple sessions

The results of your microneedling in Virginia Beach will appear gradually over multiple sessions. Most patients are advised to undergo 3 to 4 microneedling sessions spaced 4 weeks apart, but your specific treatment plan will depend on your skin condition and goals. The results will improve over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers, leading to smoother and more youthful skin.
