Micro-needling, or collagen induction therapy, regenerates the skin. During micro-needling treatment, we use small, sterilized needles to penetrate the skin and encourage collagen production.
This facial aesthetics treatment can treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Jerome Cha offers micro-needling for patients in Tulsa, OK, who want smoother, more even skin.
Microneedling in Tulsa, OK
Professional micro-needling treatment can create an even skin texture and tone. Micro-needling treatment can improve:
- Skin tone, texture, and color
- Sun-damaged skin
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin
To begin micro-needling treatment, Dr. Cha will clean the skin and apply a numbing cream. He will use a micro-needling device to target specific areas of your face. The micro-needling device holds 12 microscopic, sterilized needles that generate microchannels of blood flow in your skin.
Dr. Cha can deposit dermal filler in the channels to boost skin regeneration. Micro-needling has a quick treatment time of 20 to 30 minutes after the numbing cream takes effect.
You may feel warmth or a scratching sensation during treatment, but the numbing cream should take away most of the sensation. After treatment, we recommend using an ice pack to reduce swelling.
We also recommend avoiding direct sunlight for several days after micro-needling. Micro-needling results can last up to six months. You can repeat treatment in our office to maintain your results.
What is VectorLift?
Similar to micro-needling, VectorLift is a treatment that can encourage collagen production. However, VectorLift is a more detailed three-step procedure focusing on forehead eyebrow elevation, eyelid tightening, and scalp tightening. VectorLift works by using a laser to target points on the face.
First, Dr. Cha creates pulse points in the forehead, moving up to the scalp and then on the eyelids. Lasers use heat to tighten the skin in these areas, essentially providing a non-surgical facelift. The lasers also encourage collagen growth in these areas to help erase wrinkles or lines in the skin.
