Microneedling is among the most popular and effective skin-enhancing treatments. A regular microneedling treatment can smooth uneven skin from acne scarring, diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines, and leave your skin looking healthy and glowing. Microneedling works by triggering natural collagen and elastin production along with skin cell regeneration to leave you with a more youthful look.

When you undergo microneedling at The Skin Elite, our certified skincare expert will apply ultra-thin needles to your skin, which enter two layers: the dermis and epidermis. The microchannels created by the device send a signal to the skin to regenerate, while also making it possible to infuse critical nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and skin medications deeper into the structure of your skin.

Your Results and What to Expect

Microneedling is administered using a device called the SkinPen, a battery-operated, handheld device with a dozen ultra-fine needles. These will be customized to the exact depth required by your goals before gently gliding across your skin.

The treatment requires only about 15 minutes for the face. A numbing gel is typically applied before the pen is used, so you will not experience any discomfort.

A light treatment usually feels like sandpaper brushed against the skin, while a deeper treatment may leave your skin feeling as if you have a sunburn.


What areas of the body can be firmed with Microneedling?

While you may consider microneedling to be a facial procedure, this approach for skin rejuvenation can also be used on a range of body areas to create firmer, more resilient skin, including:

  • Face
  • Around the eyes
  • Mouth
  • Chest
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Scalp
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Back

How many Microneedling treatments will I need?

Because microneedling is gentle and progressive, it requires a series of sessions spaced out over several months. With each session, the results will build as your complexion transforms. Those with acne scars will usually need between six and eight sessions. Our comprehensive skin evaluation process will help us tell you how many treatments you may need to achieve your vision of healthy, glowing skin.

What is the recovery time after Microneedling?

There is not much you need to do to prepare for your peel. During your consultation, we may recommend using a retinoid cream such as Retin-A before your peel to shorten your treatment time and speed the healing process.

Do not exfoliate your skin or utilize treatments like waxing, electrolysis, or depilatory creams for a week before your treatment. You'll also need to stop using anti-aging or anti-acne medications and plan your peel treatment with enough time to fully heal before any important social events.
