Rejuvenating the texture and appearance of the skin can be done naturally, without using chemicals or surgery. At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, our microneedling treatment improves the look and feel of your skin with minimal downtime.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a popular technique to improve your skin naturally and non-surgically. This treatment works well because of the skin’s ability to heal itself when cut. It stimulates the body’s natural healing process, building fresh, new skin.
Each session takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the skin’s condition and the area treated. As a result, skin is firmer, smoother, and younger-looking in appearance and texture. Full results are generally visible after 6-8 weeks and may improve further. Multiple sessions might be encouraged to maintain your results depending on the level of rejuvenation you desire.
Microneedling treats the following Skin Conditions:
- Exfoliating Complexion
- Boosting Collagen & Elastin Production
- Repairing Visible Scarring
- Reducing Stretch Marks
- Reversing Sun Damage & Discoloration
- Reducing Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Shrinking Pores

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I expect during my microneedling treatment?
During your treatment, your technician will move a handheld tool with tiny, sterile needles across your skin. This tool creates microscopic holes that should close within an hour. We also use Tensage® Intensive Serum, a hyaluronic acid serum, on your skin to assist with skin regeneration by stimulating cell growth to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, help boost collagen and elastin, and maintain optimal moisture levels in your skin. The needles in the pen will help penetrate the serum into the dermal layer of your skin. Before your technician begins, they will apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort during your treatment, reducing the pain sensation as your technician moves the handheld tool across your skin. After your treatment is completed, we will place a growth factor serum mask over your skin to continue the rejuvenating effects.
Am I a good candidate for microneedling?
We will discuss your skin concerns and goals during your initial consultation and determine whether this treatment is proper for you. Unlike some laser and chemical treatments, this treatment is suitable for all skin types. Individuals who do not have conflicting skin conditions, like psoriasis or eczema, are good candidates. Our clients who choose this treatment usually have the following skin concerns:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Premature Aging
- Stretch Marks
- Loose or Sagging Skin
Are there any risks or side effects of this treatment?
Your skin may appear swollen and red or flushed after treatment, as though you have a mild sunburn. Treated areas may also feel tight and sensitive to the touch. This sensitivity will subside within 24 hours after treatment. Any redness should fade completely within three days. You may also experience some of the following side effects after treatment:
- Scabbing over the treated area
- Flaking or dry skin
What should I expect for aftercare?
Your technician will inform you of all necessary aftercare after your treatment is completed, including products you will need to use for at-home care during healing. We will send you home with recommended products to use on your skin that will assist in the healing process.
