Microneedling in Oklahoma City, OK | Bajaj Plastic Surgery

Microneedling skin treatments are quickly becoming one of the most popular non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures in the aesthetic industry. With little to no downtime and minimal patient discomfort, microneedling treatments offer minimally invasive skin tightening and effective wrinkle reduction. During this innovative skin treatment, micro-injuries are created on the skin’s surface, stimulating and remodeling collagen while also triggering new skin cell regeneration. The results are firmer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.

Dr. Anu Bajaj provides microneedling treatments in Oklahoma City to all Oklahoma residents looking to rejuvenate lackluster, aging skin in a more natural, non-surgical way. If you are interested in learning more about microneedling treatments, please contact our office at (405) 810-8448 or complete our online form.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling, or skin needling or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Bajaj uses a specialized device equipped with micro-fine needles that gently injure the skin’s surface. This controlled damage in the top layer of the skin helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, producing more collagen and elastin to smooth fine lines, fill in wrinkles and depressed acne scars, and lighten hyperpigmentation.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling Treatments?

Microneedling treatments offer several other beneficial side effects that you can take full advantage of, including:

  • Reduces Pock Marks and Scarring— An impressive benefit of microneedling treatments is that skin needling helps to reduce acne scars, which are notoriously difficult to treat with topical remedies. Acne scarring is the result of inflammation and fibrosis following acne outbreaks.  Microneedling treatments help break up the fibrosis underneath the skin from the acne scarring..
  • Removes Blackheads— Both men and women can suffer from the tiny black dots that mark the bridges of their nose, across the forehead, or around their chin. The controlled trauma and thousands of needle pokes created in microneedling treatments break apart these congested pores creating an immediate reduction in the total volume and appearance of blackheads on the face. Many patients also notice their pores are smaller due to the healing effects and vascularization that occur.
  • Treats Acne and Cystic Acne— Not only can microneedling treatments help with acne scars, but they can also help treat acne at the start. Acne is caused by an overproduction of sebum. Microneedling has been proven to reduce the skin’s sebum and oil production, preventing pores from becoming clogged and irritated.
  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles—The small pin-sized holes created by the microneedling device break apart the upper levels of the dermis. These injuries trigger the release of growth factors to repair and heal with collagen and elastin. In addition to the stimulation of collagen, these micro-traumas also form tiny blood vessels that supply blood, oxygen, and nutrients straight to the dermis. Combining these changes results in wrinkle reduction, healing photodamage, and tightening of existing skin—all of which can make you look younger and more vibrant.
  • Lightens Hyperpigmentation and Creates a More Even Skin Tone— Lastly, microneedling can help create a more even skin tone by lightening hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation refers to the brown or red spots from inflammation, acne, or sun damage. Microneedling helps by increasing the expression of matrix metalloproteinases, which reduces hyperpigmentation by breaking apart the pigmentation. This process allows the body to absorb it and replace it with a healthy, even skin tone.

What to Expect from a Microneedling Treatment

Before your microneedling appointment at Bajaj Plastic Surgery, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed of any oil, makeup, skincare, or debris before applying a topical numbing agent. This topical anesthetic will help keep you comfortable and pain-free while the microneedling device works. Once your skin is thoroughly numb, Dr. Bajaj, or a member of her team, will begin gently gliding the device across your skin in swift passes. You shouldn’t feel any discomfort, but you may experience some light pressure as the device goes over the targeted areas.

After your procedure, your skin will be cleansed again, and soothing serums will be applied. You’ll be equipped with thorough aftercare instructions on keeping your skin clean and ways to aid you through the healing process for the next few weeks. If you have questions or concerns about your healing, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Bajaj.

Microneedling Results and Recovery

Downtime after microneedling is minimal. Inflammation and redness will be at their peak in the first two to three days, so your skin may be highly sensitive at this time. Dr. Bajaj may encourage you to avoid strenuous activities during the first few days after your treatment to help reduce further skin irritation and allow your skin to remain clean and calm.

The timeline for microneedling results varies from person to person. However, most patients see some skin flaking and peeling starting around day three. These changes are normal and essential to your results, as this is when the skin is actively trying to repair itself. During this time, refrain from touching your skin as much as possible and focus on keeping it clean and hydrated.

Most patients notice skin tone and texture improvements as early as two to three weeks after their first session. The maximal results typically occur after three months, when collagen is fully formed. Depending on the desired results, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve additional effectiveness. During your consultation with Dr. Bajaj, she can help determine how many microneedling sessions you’ll need to achieve optimal results based on your skin’s individual needs.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Microneedling Treatments?

If you want to achieve smooth, healthy, youthful skin and struggle with issues like scars, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation, you are likely an excellent candidate for microneedling treatments. Patients with ongoing skin ailments or infections must resolve these conditions before pursuing treatment.
