Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that works by stimulating collagen production in the skin. For this reason, it's often referred to as collagen induction therapy. The microneedling treatment involves making small wounds in the skin, which triggers a healing response in the body. The body will then produce collagen to heal these small wounds, which are quickly healed with plenty of collagen remaining to rejuvenate the skin.

What is Microneedling Used For?
Microneedling is a great solution for many cosmetic concerns. We offer microneedling stretch marks treatments, as well as microneedling for lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and sagging skin. For more significant results, we may recommend microneedling with PRP.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your cosmetic goals and the extent of treatment necessary. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your treatment goals in order to determine the microneedling technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment.
What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling with PRP combines the rejuvenation benefits of microneedling with the restorative powers of PRP. PRP contains many growth factors, which help the body naturally heal and repair itself. Combining PRP with a microneedling treatment can create results even faster, while also providing more comprehensive rejuvenating benefits.
What is the Microneedling Procedure Like?
Before the microneedling procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. Then, we use the Rejuvapen microneedling device to treat the desired areas of the skin. If you are combining your microneedling treatment with PRP, we also perform the PRP injections during this time. The microneedling treatment typically takes less than an hour to perform.
What is Microneedling Recovery Like?
After the microneedling treatment, it is common to experience some redness, irritation and sensitivity in the skin. However, these effects typically resolve within a few days. Despite these effects, you can resume all normal activities immediately following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?
The results from microneedling become visible in the weeks following treatment. These results continue to improve gradually for a few months as new collagen is implemented into the skin. For best results, especially for improving deeper cosmetic concerns, multiple treatments are often necessary. During your consultation, we'll discuss the number of recommended treatments based on your cosmetic goals.
