While lasers are the gold standard for skin tightening and resurfacing, there is a possibility that your downtime may last more than a day. Microneedling, on the other hand, quickly and efficiently addresses issues ranging from stubborn wrinkles to stretchmarks. However, the two treatments together often complement each other to achieve a patient’s optimal results.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling treatments are quick and nearly painless, with little downtime and can be done at four weeks apart for quick and effective results. Typically these treatments are done in a series of three or more. Patients like that they are able to receive a treatment and still return to work the next day. Any visible side effects are easily camouflaged with makeup.
Benefits of Lasers
Laser treatments can help improve acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, texture and wrinkles. They repair your skin from the inside out, delivering long lasting, visible results. There are options for laser resurfacing that do not require a lot of downtime and are also very comfortable, with the aid of a topical numbing cream.

Since both of these treatment options warrant great outcomes, it’s often most beneficial to pair them in a treatment plan. In addition, medical-grade skin care products are also recommended to maintain the longevity of treatments and keep your skin healthy and glowing. Consulting with Dr. Coley and/or a skilled member of his team will enable you to determine a treatment plan that is best for you.
