If you feel like your rosacea makes you look more like Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer than anything else, then you may be the perfect candidate for microneedling from our Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery. As one of the most popular non-invasive procedures right now, microneedling can do a variety of different things including helping with rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, and even scarring.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling does exactly what its name states. It uses tiny needles. But what do those tiny needles do exactly? They help encourage the growth of collagen in your skin. By using a handheld device, microneedling will make tiny punctures in your skin which will signal your skin to create newer, collagen-filled in its place.
What Does It Feel Like?
To start out, we will numb your skin with a topical numbing cream. After that, we will slowly roll the microneedling device across your skin. If you start to feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure, we can apply some more numbing cream over the top. Additionally, we may encourage you to take some over-the-counter pain pills like Ibuprofen to help curb the pain.
What Is Recovery Like?
The good news about microneedling is that recovery isn’t very extensive. Typically, patients experience some redness right afterward by that should subside after just 24 hours.
What Are Results Like?
Typically, after one session, patients with rosacea will notice a slight difference in their skin tone. However, after several sessions is when patients will notice the real results. Depending on how your skin responds to microneedling will determine how many sessions you will need.
