Frequently Asked Questions

Below is some information to provide you with a better understanding of microneedling procedure.

What does microneedling do?

Microneedling can be performed anywhere on the body. It is a minimally invasive procedure, performed in the office by our expertly trained esthetician staff. This device is used primarily to rejuvenate aging skin and improve the appearance of acne scarring. It encourages your skin to make new collagen and elastin which helps tighten and smooth the skin.

Is micro-needling painful?

A topical numbing agent is applied prior to treatment, and most patients say their experience was nearly painless.

How many treatments will I need?

Results may be visible after one session, however to obtain optimal results, a series of 3-6 sessions is recommended.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

You can dramatically improve the effects of microneedling by adding PRP to your session. Platelet rich plasma is derived from your own blood right in our office and then applied to your skin during the microneedling session. The growth factors found in PRP help stimulate healing in the skin, which in turn helps build collagen.
