Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling at Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi uses tiny needles and SkinPen technology to make microtears in your skin. This innovative procedure enhances your body’s natural ability to generate new cells and promote smoother, younger-looking skin.
What are the benefits of microneedling?

SkinPen microneedling uses a handheld, pen-like device to create tiny microtears in your skin. The procedure is fast and produces highly effective antiaging outcomes.
Is microneedling right for me?
Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi offers a variety of cosmetic procedures. To find out if microneedling is the solution for you, the experienced team discusses your medical history and desired outcome and examines your skin.
Your specialist personalizes a skin revitalization treatment that best matches your needs, beauty goals, preferences, and skin type.
What happens during microneedling?
Prior to microneedling at Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi, the team numbs the treatment area so you can avoid discomfort. They use an FDA-approved SkinPen to make tiny punctures in your skin at targeted areas.
The length of time each treatment lasts depends on the size of the areas treated. Your specialist may apply nourishing serums, stem cells, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your skin with microneedling to enhance the effectiveness of the procedure.
What should I expect after the procedure?
After microneedling treatment, expect your skin to be tender, red, and a bit swollen. Follow your post-care instructions to properly care for your skin and reduce the risk of infection.
Take over-the-counter pain relievers to eliminate any discomfort as your skin heals, and protect affected skin from the sun before and after microneedling procedures.
Your Oral & Facial Surgery of Mississippi specialist may recommend multiple microneedling treatments spaced apart over time, or more than one type of cosmetic procedure, to help you achieve highly effective results.
