At The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Wayne Larrabee understands that not all cosmetic issues are solved with plastic surgery. This is why his practice offers a wide range of nonsurgical treatments for patients to consider as well. With his help, patients who are fighting the early onset of aging skin may find a treatment such as microneedling to be incredibly helpful in restoring their youthful appearance without surgical interventions.
What is microneedling?
Dr. Wayne Larrabee describes the microneedling treatment as a way to stimulate the body’s natural production of new collagen and elastin to address poor skin texture and tone. It can also improve the skin’s overall complexion, fading away redness that might be difficult to disguise with makeup. The microneedling treatment uses a specialized device that leaves hundreds of small pinpricks on the skin, causing “wounds” that trigger the body’s response system. New collagen and elastin forms with time, smoothing away wrinkles and lines that may be bothersome to both men and women alike.
Why choose microneedling?
Microneedling has been found to be one of the most effective ways of addressing early aging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, and continues to be requested by patients who have experienced the difference this treatment can make in their skin’s health and appearance. Dr. Wayne Larrabee will evaluate a patient during their first consultation to determine if they are a good fit for microneedling and will find the benefits they desire with continued treatments.
How long does it take for the results to appear?
Collagen and elastin production takes time, so it is important that patients wait for the gradual improvements that will be noticeable within a few weeks. Patients can continue to treat the skin as needed to maintain results and slow the overall progression of new fine lines and wrinkles.
