Microneedling is a very popular skin treatment trend among patients with a variety of age-related skin problems as well as in patients with common skin conditions such as acne.
Collagen and elastin are two naturally occurring proteins that are responsible for the youthful firmness of your skin. However, with age, the production of both these proteins in our body tends to slow down – leading to skin dullness and loss of natural firmness and uneven skin texture in addition to other age-related skin conditions.
Microneedling has proven to be very effective in stimulating the production of both these essential skin proteins and in promoting the natural rejuvenation process of the skin. At his plastic surgery center in Irvine microneedling is offered by Dr. Smith for patients who want to restore their natural youthful skin appearance by reducing common signs of aging quickly and painlessly and without the need for any surgical intervention.
Some of the age-related skin problems that can be effectively minimized with microneedling include the appearance of age spots, dullness of skin, overly large pores, irregular skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and firmness of the skin. Microneedling has also proven to be highly effective in treating acne marks.
Most patients are naturally nervous about getting any kind of skin treatment. It is also natural for patients to look around and do an exhaustive search when looking for a plastic surgeon that they can trust. Strong ground reputation, excellent credentials, well-established expertise in plastic surgery treatment options and surgical skills definitely matter.
Patients also want physicians who treat them with compassion and are understanding of their individual goals and expectations. It is for these very reasons that a large number of patients in Orange County come to Dr. Smith.

If you want to reduce common signs of aging which include wrinkles and fine lines, large pores, age spots, uneven skin tone, and texture, or if you suffer from skin conditions such as acne – then you can be a good candidate for microneedling.
No. Microneedling is a relatively painless procedure. Dr. Smith will use a topical anesthetic, or numbing cream, to ensure the entire process is comfortable and painless.
One of the reasons why Microneedling is a popular treatment option with patients is because it requires very little to no downtime – most patients do not need to take time off from work for their treatment session.
One session typically takes around 30 minutes to complete.
Depending on the kind of skin conditions that need to be treated, Dr. Smith may recommend 4-6 treatments that are evenly spaced a few weeks apart. To ensure the longevity of the treatment results, patients might be recommended to get microneedling every three to six months.
You can expect your skin to appear slightly red for 24-48 hours after your microneedling treatment – this will naturally resolve itself. Most patients start using makeup within a day or two of their treatment.
Depending on an individual, microneedling treatment results can last anywhere from three to six months.
