What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses tiny needles on a handheld device that makes controlled micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin where aging has begun to reveal itself. This causes the skin to react by stimulating collagen and elastin to send to the area to heal it. Once this happens, the collagen adds volume to the skin, and the elastin helps return the skin to its original state.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is safe for most skin types, tones and textures. If you are a man or woman looking for a treatment for your persistent acne and acne scarring, microneedling may be right for you. Microneedling stretch marks is a great treatment for women after childbirth. The treatment reduces the scar tissue to make the stretch marks less visible.
How is Microneedling Performed?
Microneedling is performed with the MDPen® device that is equipped with a series of small hair-like needles. One of our registered nurses or Nurse Practitioner will press the device into the skin and penetrate the skin with the needles. The needles only go into the outer layer of skin, so you do not experience a lot of bleeding or discomfort after the treatment.
What is Recovery Like After Microneedling?
Microneedling requires no downtime. While you may experience some redness, tenderness and swelling to the skin, most of our patients return to their normal daily activities without restriction following their microneedling treatment.
How Long Will Microneedling Results Last?
The results of your microneedling treatment will depend on how your skin naturally ages. While the length of the results from your microneedling treatment will vary, they typically last years with a few treatments.
