From acne to signs of aging, imperfections in our skin can be difficult to cover or treat.
Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment option that encourages the production of collagen to promote the healing of blemishes and more.
Skin Care at 5th Ave. can perform microneedling or another treatment to rejuvenate your skin.
Our Peachtree City, GA, office is proud to serve clients throughout the Atlanta, Fayetteville, and Newnan areas.
What Is Microneedling?
A microneedling device is a handheld tool that is rolled across the skin. Tiny sterilized needles make small pinpricks in the skin that stimulate the body's natural healing response. The body then produces collagen and elastin to heal these, healing other imperfections in the process. You can benefit from a microneedling treatment if you have a variety of skin issues, including:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots
- Minor skin sagging
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
Microneedling is usually performed on the face but can also be performed on other areas of the body, like the stomach or thighs. It is safe for all skin tones and may be better than laser treatments for patients who have deeper skin tones.

We Offer Different Types of Microneedling DEPENDING ON YOUR UNIQUE CONCERNS
Also known as RF microneedling, this treatment uses heat to target deeper layers of skin than microneedling can reach alone with little to no downtime. RF microneedling delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin that is transformed into heat. This plumps the skin, smoothing wrinkles and acne scars.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Microneedling
Following a typical microneedling procedure, your plasma is applied to the treatment area. Platelets help heal wounds by speeding up the healing process and stimulating cell renewal after your treatment. This kind of microneedling may work better when treating uneven skin texture and scars from surgery or acne.
SkinPen® microneedling is a precise treatment that can do everything microneedling can, including smooth scars and fine lines; however, SkinPen may be a more efficient treatment when trying to target imperfections in intricate areas that a traditional microneedling device can't cover. These areas include the décolletage and around the nose.
How Microneedling Treatment Works
Patients see the best results after two to three treatments.
The Recovery Process
Microneedling involves little to no downtime. However, you may experience some mild side effects for the first day or two after treatment, such as:
- Swelling around the treatment area
- Some minor bleeding
- A feeling of warmness, like a sunburn
As your skin heals, use a gentle cleanser, avoid harsh skin care products, and wear sunscreen. Follow all aftercare instructions given to you by Dr. Galitzin.
The Benefits of Professional Microneedling
Dermabrasion can result in downtime as your skin heals. Chemical peels can be necessary in some instances, but when you're not treating surface conditions, you may find it embarrassing to be seen in public for several days as your skin sheds. Microneedling has minimal side effects. Some of these side effects, like redness, can be covered with makeup after a single day, and most patients feel comfortable returning to their normal activities within 48 hours of treatment.
Store-bought derma rollers may be cheaper than a professional treatment, but they can be dangerous when used incorrectly. Our skin care professionals know the proper technique to get results without damaging the skin and can sterilize their microneedling devices, significantly reducing the risk of infection.
A professional microneedling device has longer needles than a store-bought derma roller, so your treatment affects deeper layers of your skin. With Dr. Galitzin at his office serving the Atlanta area, you can see more noticeable results in fewer treatments.
