If over-the-counter skin products are no longer proving effective but you don't want surgical procedures, learn more about minimally invasive and nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate the skin such as microneedling. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Childers is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at his offices located in Redlands, Upland, and Riverside, CA. Microneedling uses several fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that improve the appearance and health of the complexion. Make an appointment for a consultation at Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care to hear more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your needs and goals.
You may be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or medium complexion issues, like a decrease in elasticity or rough skin texture. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also minimize the look of scars, pores, and stretch marks. You must be willing to wait before seeing improvements from your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require some time to have an effect impact on the complexion; however, you will develop results that look natural and gain healthier overall skin.

"I have been getting the PRP treatment done here for hair regrowth in the last four months and the service and staff here have been phenomenal. Not only did I feel comfortable during the whole PRP process, but I also noticed quick results after the second treatment. Liz was very confident and reassuring during the PRP process in handling any and all of my questions before I made the decision to start the treatment. At my appointments with Liz, she made me feel as if I was her top priority and desired to meet all of my expectations before leaving every appointment. Liz and the staff definitely displayed an extreme amount of patience and customer service either whenever I was there for an appointment or when I called with a question. I would definitely recommend Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care to anyone, especially those whose hair is thinning as I know they will receive the same amount of care that I did. Thank you so much, Liz and the Sheer Beauty staff, for making me feel welcomed and appreciated. I will continue to use Sheer Beauty to fulfill all my medical skin care needs and refer as much as I can to show my thanks!"- A.G. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
Microneedling is completed in a private treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if preferred; however, patients generally report little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is complete, a treatment such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum with vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with UV protection since the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
What to Expect@headingTag>
You can experience mild redness and swelling for around one day after microneedling; however, this should fade naturally. 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 complexion. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits.
