Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, two key naturally-occurring substances that maintain a healthy, youthful complexion. Our dermatology practice uses one of the most technologically advanced surgical devices that allows our dermatologists to make precise punctures, targeting the desired speed and depth to trigger increased collagen production where your body needs it most.

Microneedling creates a brighter, younger complexion by improving the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Scars (including Acne Scars)
  • Burns
  • Stretch Marks
  • Large Pores

Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions

We use the AquaGold fine touch, that has the proven ability to deliver the desired amount of biologic, just under the dermis, at a consistent depth, pain-free, and over a large surface area.
Treatment requires 30-45 minutes, depending upon which areas are treated and whether it is combined with other treatments.
Microneedling is a highly effective and minimally-invasive skin-rejuvenating treatment that harnesses the body’s natural healing and anti-aging factors, and it is appropriate for most patients over 18 with moderately healthy skin and no active bacterial infections or acne. Other patients should speak with a dermatologist about whether Microneedling is best for them.
Visible reduction in scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles will reach maximum reduction in 4-6 months. The newly stimulated collagen will remain for several years, but no treatment can permanently “stop the clock.” Regular maintenance will not only slow the aging process but also complement your efforts. In fact, best results occur after four or five consecutive treatments over several months.
Patients may experience redness, dryness, and tingling following the procedures, depending upon number of treatment areas and whether this procedure was combined with another. Bruising and swelling may also occur for some patients. Patients can return to work, exercise, and other activities the next day.
Microneedling can be combined with any liquid treatment on the surface of the skin, such as PRP Therapy and certain facials. This will maximize efforts to improve overall skin quality, including texture and complexion while rejuvenating its youthful appearance.
The needles available for spa and at-home use are less effective, shorter, and are often intended for multiple treatments (2x a week or more.) Medical Microneedling uses longer, fine needles allowing for more precise targeting of problem areas and effective treatment. Further, at-home and spa treatments use needles that could potentially scrape, scratch, or scar the skin. Medical-grade Microneedling is done at the precise angle to minimize any trauma while maximizing your skin’s natural regenerative factor.
