Rejuvenate and refresh your skin with microneedling treatments
Microneedling is a gentle rejuvenating skin treatment that uses a medical device consisting of very small needles to stimulate the body's collagen production. The increased collagen helps to improve the skin’s tone, texture, and overall appearance.
Quick and efficient, microneedling is a straightforward procedure that allows you to get back to your daily routine following your treatment!

Frequently Asked Questions
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to produce more collagen. Leveraging the latest innovative Rejuvapen technology, microneedling uses 9 micro needles placed in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis.
When these needles make contact with the skin, they create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface, causing micro-trauma. These tiny pinpricks also create micro-channels, which trigger the body’s natural healing process and subsequent collagen production, without damaging the surrounding dermal tissue. This new collagen improves skin elasticity and texture, softens fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes acne scars, and improves the overall appearance of your skin.
By stimulating the natural healing mechanisms of your skin, microneedling works to diminish the fine lines and minor scars. Best of all, this non-invasive procedure stimulates collagen and elastin to provide you with a firmer, revitalized complexion.
Common benefits to microneedling include:
- Diminished signs of aging
- Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Smooth minor acne scars
- Reduce sun damage
- Reduced pore size
- Hydrates and enhances treatment area(s)
- Minimal downtime
As a surface treatment, microneedling treatments produce minimal side effects. However, you may experience mild tenderness, redness, and swelling around your treatment area(s). These side effects typically resolve within a few hours after your procedure.
The results of microneedling treatments are not permanent, as our skin cells typically regenerate every 30 days. For optimal results, we recommend scheduling followup treatments every 6 to 8 weeks after you reach your target skin goals.
Most of our patients experience noticeable results immediately following their first series of microneedling treatments. However, we recommend a series of 3 – 5 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart, to experience optimal results. Once you achieve your target results, we recommend maintenance treatments every 6 to 8 weeks.
Microneedling treatments work on the surface layers of the skin, and most of our patients report no pain at all. However, you may experience mild tenderness, redness, and swelling for a few hours after your procedure. Your provider can apply a topical numbing cream before your treatment to ensure your maximum comfort.
