What to Expect

A handheld microneedling device is composed of small, surgical-grade needles that, when moved across the skin, activates the body’s natural healing response and promotes the production of collagen. The microneedling device creates small punctures as the device moves horizontally, vertically, and diagonally across the skin. Since the needles are very small, discomfort is minimal.

Your microneedling treatment may be combined with platelet-rich plasma or PRP. This natural substance is created from platelets in your own blood and contains highly concentrated growth factors. The growth factors in PRP assist in the creation of collagen and natural healing process so that you can see the benefits of your treatment quickly.

A topical solution is often applied to the treated area to hydrate the skin and promote healing. After your procedure, your body’s natural ability to heal will reveal a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance to your skin.

Microneedling can be used on the face, neck, and décolleté to effectively treat several skin conditions:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Scarring
  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Acne

Most patients over the age of 21 can be candidates for microneedling.
