Microneedling in Columbus, Ohio is a skin care treatment that stimulates your body’s wound healing response to promote collagen growth. Think of Microneedling like aerating your lawn, creating space for new healthy tissue to grow. The Microneedling device creates microscopic punctures in the skin which triggers new collagen development. We take advantage of these microscopic pathways by incorporating topical solutions to enhance collagen production and speed the healing process. This customization results in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. This is a series of treatments customized for your needs based on desired result and condition of skin. Results build with each treatment.
Number of Treatments
3-6 Microneedling treatments are recommended
Microneedling is an effective treatment for the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, legs, abdomen and back. We can treat more than one area at the same time. The advantage to this is that there will be only one “downtime” per treatment because the body will heal all at once.
The average Microneedling treatment is between 30 minutes to 1 hour. The more areas treated, the longer the treatment time.
The typical recovery time for Microneedling is 3-5 days. Microneedling can be camouflaged the next day by using a medical grade product that we have in stock at Columbus Facial Plastics. This is a safe, healthy product that speeds healing and protects you from sun exposure.
