Are you looking for one of the most effective ways to improve your skin’s appearance? Then our microneedling services might be just what you need.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a popular facial rejuvenation treatment that involves using a device to create tiny punctures in the skin. The goal of microneedling is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and even minimize large pores. The precise needling of the skin produces a wound-healing response which kickstarts regeneration at the cellular level. Over time, this leaves you with skin that is healthier and more youthful.

Are You a Good Candidate For Microneedling?

Microneedling can be beneficial for all skin types and colors. Whether you suffer from sun damage, acne scarring, crow’s feet, or other fine lines, microneedling can help give you the healthy, radiant skin you’ve been wanting.

At Low Country Dermatology, we offer SkinPen microneedling treatments along with the Morpheus8. These are FDA-approved devices that will reduce fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scarring from acne.

What Can I Expect During the Treatment?

SkinPen with PRP starts with you getting your blood drawn. The blood is then spun in our machine to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Once this is done, we will use the SkinPen to work your plasma into the skin. The microscopic punctures trigger your body’s wound-healing response, which works together with the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to leave your skin beautiful and radiant after it has healed. Post-treatment, your skin will be inflamed and appear red for about 24-48 hours.

What Can I Expect After Microneedling?

Post-treatment, your skin will be inflamed and appear red for about 24-48 hours. Redness, swelling, tightness, and sensitivity are all common side effects while your skin is in the healing phase. Makeup is best kept to a minimum, but sunscreen is recommended if you are going outdoors.

Professional microneedling has continued to grow in popularity over the years because of its long-lasting effectiveness, and we are proud to offer these services at Low Country Dermatology. Schedule your appointment today.
