When home skin care products aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, consider nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling to help bring back your natural glow. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. John P. Connors is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy), which uses a collection of 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 enhance the health and appearance of the skin. As the skin heals, it creates a skin regeneration process leading to a softer, smoother, healthier complexion. Schedule a consultation at John Connors, MD Plastic Surgery to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin needs and goals.
You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, such as rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of pores, scars, and stretch marks. We discuss expectations during the consultation, and inform patients that the results may not be immediate. Collagen and elastin need time to have an effect on the skin, but in a matter of a few days or short weeks you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.

"Dr. Connors performed my rhinoplasty procedure in July of 2014. It has been completely life-changing. For as long as I can remember, my nose was something that I was very self-conscious about. Dr. Connors took the time to explain the entire process and procedure, all of the risks and benefits, and a realistic expectation of the results. He also used the Vectra 3D imaging system to actually show me a projected outcome of the procedure. The imaging showed the manipulated image of the nose on my face, so I had a good idea what I would look like after the surgery. This really helped to put me at ease because I knew he and I were on the same page regarding the results. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Connors and his office for any surgical or non-surgical procedure. You won't get better results or a more caring surgeon and staff!"- K.H. / Google / Aug 09, 2020

Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if requested, but most patients feel mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is gently glided evenly over the skin. This handpiece has tiny needles attached to it, which essentially "punctures" the skin, creating tiny holes. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment (and in some cases, 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 in along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the procedure.
What to Expect
You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly on its own. The skin heals fairly quickly after microneedling and will appear normal to those around you. However, it may take about 1 – 2 months for the final results to appear as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results and lasting skin health.
