Microneedling takes advantage of the body’s unique healing capabilities to enhance skin elasticity and address other cosmetic concerns. Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD provides this proven treatment to men and women in Knoxville and Powell, TN.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin care treatment that is used to stimulate collagen production in the skin, correcting signs of aging, stretch marks, acne scars, and more. The microneedling process is simple. Small needles break the skin’s surface, triggering a healing response in the body. The body produces collagen in order to repair the skin, which heals quickly due to the small size of the injury. The excess collagen is then used to strengthen the skin, which results in tighter, healthier, and more beautiful skin. At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we use the SkinPen Morpheus8 for microneedling treatments.

As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer financing to help make our treatments more affordable.
What is the Microneedling Treatment Like?
For microneedling treatments, we often begin by applying a topical anesthetic to the skin. This helps to reduce any discomfort that may occur during the treatment process. The treatment process will vary depending on your treatment method. However, all treatments involve using the desired treatment device to make small punctures in the skin. Once the surface area has been completely treated, the treatment will be complete.
What is Recovery Like Following Microneedling?
After the microneedling treatment, your skin will be red, swollen, and possibly sensitive. It is important to take care of the skin following treatment, which is why we offer a microneedling post-treatment that includes a number of beneficial skin care products. Despite these side effects, most patients are able to return to work and other usual activities within a day or two of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?
The results from your microneedling visible will become gradually visible as the skin heals. These results may continue to improve over the months following treatment due to increased collagen in the body. However, most patients need a series of microneedling treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. During your consultation, we will help you determine a treatment plan that is best for your specific needs.
