A collagen-stimulating treatment that leads to smoother skin and a brighter appearance.
Microneedling is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure used to improve skin health and get rid of visible signs of aging. It stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which leads to the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that give the skin a more “plump” look. With regular microneedling treatments, you will experience a wide range of benefits including more youthful looking skin!
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
During a microneedling treatment, the pen device creates numerous tiny, controlled punctures in the skin’s outermost layer, known as the epidermis. The micro-injuries are very small and do not cause significant damage to the skin but are enough to stimulate the body’s healing mechanisms. The body responds by initiating the healing process and sends specialized cells and growth factors to the treated area.
One of the key benefits of microneedling is the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, while elastin contributes to its resilience. With increased production, you will notice improved skin texture, firmness and increased radiance.
Results are long-lasting with multiple treatment sessions. We recommend 3 or 4 series spaced out four to six weeks apart for maximum benefit. You can also add exosomes or PRP to any microneedling procedure for a boost in skin glow!
Pricing for microneedling depends on how many areas are treated. Common starting points are listed below:
Full Face – $650
Face and neck – $850
Scars – $300
PRP Add-On – $700
You will start to see results a few weeks after a microneedling treatment. It takes around 4-6 weeks to see the maximum results. We recommend a series of 3 treatments to achieve long-lasting benefit.

What should I expect during a microneedling procedure?
Every microneedling appointment begins with a full skin analysis performed by your licensed aesthetician or medical provider. This includes a discussion of your goals and individual needs. The treatment area is first prepped with a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort you may have throughout the procedure. This is left on for 30-45 minutes. Once the skin is adequately numb, we begin the microneedling treatment. The device is guided carefully across the skin and the needles automatically create small punctures at a depth we set. We perform 2-3 passes over each treatment area to ensure we achieve adequate coverage. If you add PRP to the treatment, this is first applied to the surface of the skin and gently stamped down into the deeper layers using the microneedling pen. After the procedure, we apply the remaining PRP to the skin, which helps to speed up the recovery process. The treatment is finished with serums and moisturizers to help promote healing and restore hydration. The entire process takes around 1 hour to complete.
How should I prepare for my microneedling procedure?
It is recommended you avoid skincare products with active ingredients for 5 days before treatment. These include retinol, vitamin C, AHA and BHA products.
Is there downtime after microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that treats the most superficial layers of the skin, so there is little to no downtime. Your skin may appear pink immediately afterward, which subsides over a few hours after the treatment. Most patients return to work and resume normal daily activities immediately afterward.
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is a well-tolerated procedure. We properly numb the treatment areas beforehand with topical anesthetic to ensure you do not feel any pain.
