Microneedling in Orlando
Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that usually lasts around 45 minutes. Using an electric pen-shaped device, this treatment uses fine needles to rapidly break up the skin’s surface to promote elasticity and reduce pore size. It encourages new tissue layers of elastin and collagen.
People choose microneedling for several different reasons. Although it is commonly used on the face, microneedling can also be used on other parts of the body like the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hands, legs, and back to correct or minimize certain features.
Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When you undergo microneedling, you can reduce fine lines and wrinkles to achieve a younger appearance. As the procedure encourages collagen and elasticity, it’s a great way to keep your skin from wrinkling or sagging as you age.
Treat Scars and Sun Damage
Microneedling can also be used to treat acne scars and sun damage, especially if you have age spots or suffer from hyperpigmentation. By stimulating more production of collagen and elastin, microneedling will encourage healing and healthy skin cell growth.

What Happens During the Session?
After you work with our expert providers to determine the best course of treatment, you’ll arrive at our relaxing medspa for your first microneedling session.
Before starting, our provider will apply an extra-strength prescription numbing cream to the area to help you feel more at ease during the procedure. Once 20 minutes have passed, they will start the treatment. Using the SkinPen, our provider will treat the affected area using circular motions.
You may feel a slight vibration as the device is moved across your skin, but the numbing agent will prevent you from feeling the fine needles used by the device.
What Happens After the Session?
After the session, you will likely experience redness like a mild sunburn. You may also notice swelling as well as pinpoint bruises or bleeding. Within 48 hours, this will all subside, and you won’t be able to tell that you’ve recently undergone a procedure.
Results are usually noticeable within one to two weeks of your appointment as skin cells begin to regenerate. After a month, more noticeable results will appear.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Microneedling Painful?
The treatment itself has minimal pain. The bony parts of your face or body can feel more sensitive, and the overall intensity of the procedure can differ from person to person due to every individual’s pain threshold. However, the extra-strength prescription numbing cream does help to take most of the edge of the pain away. Overall, you’ll mostly feel small vibrations, and we’re always mindful to make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?

As an estimate, scar treatment usually requires 3-6 treatments, while collagen induction requires 3-4 treatments.
How Soon Can Treatments Be Repeated?
You should allow 4-6 weeks between treatments to keep your skin safe and get the best results.
What Should I Avoid on My Skin After Treatment?
After your procedure, it’s important to avoid skin care products that contain retinol, glycolic acid, and acidic or active ingredients. You should also avoid the sun and use sunscreen as much as possible.
