How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that transforms the look and feel of damaged skin to smoother, healthier-looking skin. It involves a small device that penetrates the skin, creating controlled micro-dermal injuries. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin which in turn fills these imperfections, thus improving skin texture and firmness.
This treatment improves skin texture and firmness, reduces the appearance of acne and acne scarring, minor scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. It can be used on all skin types and almost anywhere on the body, even around the eyes.

With or Without Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn, and the red cells are isolated from the PRP. Since this process uses the patient’s blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. Utilizing this method allows us to derive biological nutrient-rich cells that ultimately result in growth proteins and what we call essential growth factors — all from your blood!
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
You’re a good candidate for microneedling if you have the uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and any other complexion concerns.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
A typical treatment takes about 60-90 minutes to perform. Treatment frequency depends on the area and condition of the skin being treated. Many skin problems can be adequately addressed with a series of 2 – 3 treatments repeated 4 – 6 weeks apart as needed, while others may require between 4 – 8 sessions six weeks apart as necessary.
What Results Will I See?*
Improvement is often seen within 1 – 2 weeks, however achieving the desired results may take a couple of months depending on the severity of the condition being treated*.
Is There Any Downtime?
After treatment, there is no downtime. Patients are encouraged to resume all normal activities immediately. You may experience some redness after your treatment, so make sure you wear sunscreen to protect your newly sensitive skin.
