If over-the-counter skin treatments are no longer proving effective but you aren't ready yet for a surgical procedure, minimally-invasive and nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation such as microneedling might be right for you. Our licensed estheticians are happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Reston, VA. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries created prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two factors that boost the overall health and appearance of the skin's complexion. Make an appointment for a consultation at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery to discover more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.
You may be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or medium complexion problems, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also improve the look of scars, stretch marks, and pores. You will need to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require a month or longer to show their impact on the complexion; however, you will see results that look natural and gain healthier, stronger skin.
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017

Microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if desired; however, patients typically experience little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the Rejuvapen is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is done, a topical treatment is used to deliver healing nutrients to the needled skin. This allows the nutrients to penetrate deeper into the recent openings. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be spread, along with sun protection since the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
What to Expect
You can develop light redness and swelling for around one day after microneedling; however, this should resolve on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes and long-term skin benefits.
