What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a medical procedure where very fine needles puncture the skin to various depths to cause a controlled injury & induce the skin to make more collagen, resulting in a clearer complexion.
Who are the Best Candidates for Microneedling?
The best candidates for this treatment are those who are experiencing common skin concerns such as:
- Face lines
- Acne scars
- Brown spots
- Hyperpigmentation (patches of skin that become darker in color than the surrounding area)
- Alopecia (hair loss)
- Rough texture
- Stretch marks
It is possible that patients affected by severe acne, skin cancer, or certain skin conditions may not be suitable candidates for this treatment. This procedure is not recommended for anyone who is pregnant, has recently received radiation therapy, currently has open wounds, or has certain skin diseases (such as psoriasis or eczema).
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Some of the many benefits that we have witnessed firsthand from microneedling are:
- Scar and/or acne treatment
- Improved skin texture
- Reduced wrinkles and tightened skin
- Reduced signs of aging
- Improved collagen production
Dermal remodeling is also safe for all skin types, is non-invasive and non-surgical, and requires very minimal downtime.
What’s the Microneedling Process?
The Microneedling process is very simple compared to most cosmetic procedures. A small pen-like device will make several passes over the targeted area, gently gliding across your skin. There may be a prickling sensation during the process, but if this is a concern, a topical anesthetic can be applied before your treatment to enhance your comfort. Once the treatment is completed, a Hyaluronic Mask is applied to enrich the skin to reduce the redness and discomfort. Intensively hydrating the skin and promoting effective wound healing.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How often should I get Microneedling?
The frequency of appointments all depends on your skin, age, and personal, desired skin results. Realistically, in order to maintain results, you may require multiple treatments over the course of a year, usually spaced apart every 4 to 6 weeks. These maintenance appointments, in addition to a healthy skincare routine, will help refresh your skin and maintain the results of microneedling.
- Does Microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is a mostly non-invasive procedure, the use of tiny needles can produce a slight pricking sensation, which may cause some level of discomfort in certain patients.
- How long does it last?
While you will see immediate results from your dermal remodeling through some visible tightening, the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibers will appear more evidently over two to three months. The results of a single treatment can last between six months to a year, although multiple treatments (2 to 3 times a year) will help you achieve the best results.
