About Microneedling

When home skin treatments fail but you aren't ready for surgery just yet, try nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation like microneedling. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Raleigh, NC. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Schedule a consultation at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin concerns and goals.

What is RF Microneedling?

Our Dr. Glenn Lyle Plastic Surgery team uses a special approach that produces gorgeous outcomes for our patients using a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with innovative Lutronic Genius® technology. RF remedies have existed for many years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for their skin tightening effects. This particular type of treatment uses heat to encourage the creation of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin to reveal a tighter, smoother surface. This treatment can be used with microneedling to maximize the outcomes. We frequently incorporate this new process into our Raleigh, NC patients' skin care treatments to generate firmer skin, a smoother feel, and a glowing complexion. With Lutronic Genius, treatments can be carefully curated for multiple skin types and various areas of the body. Ask us about RF microneedling with Lutronic Genius during your initial consultation at our facility.

Ideal Candidates

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of scars, pores, and stretch marks. You'll have to wait a while before seeing the benefits from your microneedling treatment since collagen and elastin need a month or longer to affect the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier, stronger skin.

Procedure Technique

Microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if desired, but patients typically experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling machine is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What to Expect

You may develop light swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results and long-term skin health.
