What is Microneedling?
If home skin treatments are no longer effective, but you aren't ready for surgery, learn more about nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate the skin, like microneedling. Dr. Richard Ruff is happy to offer The SkinPen for microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Heath, OH. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the appearance and health of your complexion. Often performed with other treatments, such as serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help Zanesville, Pataskala, and Columbus, OH women and men reduce scars, stretch marks, and pores. Make an appointment for a consultation at Skin Retouch MediSpa to hear more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize your treatment for your skin needs and goals.

What Can I Expect from My Microneedling Treatment?
Your microneedling treatment will be completed in one of our office procedure rooms in around 30 – 60 minutes. While patients typically experience little to no pain, local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if you'd like. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over your skin. Once the microneedling is done, a topical treatment, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, may be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with UV protection since the treated skin will be sensitive following the treatment. You might experience mild swelling and redness for a day or so, but this should fade naturally. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases before you see significant improvements in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should plan to get around 4 – 6 follow-up treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits.
