Microneedling in Jacksonville, FL

Our team of highly-trained Skin Health Specialists are pleased to offer microneedling (also known as “collagen induction therapy”) at our office. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin — two nutrients that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Microneedling can be performed on essentially any part of the body.

What Exactly is Microneedling?

Easily combined with other treatments like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling helps reduce scars, stretch marks, and pores. Collagen is a fibrous protein that helps keep your skin supple, smooth, and tight. As you get older, your stores of collagen are depleted and your skin becomes thin and less elastic. Microneedling causes small wounds in your skin that force your skin to increase its collagen production and generate new skin cell growth. This means that once your skin is healed, it becomes healthier, firmer, and brighter through the microneedling process.

SkinPen: The Very Best in Microneedling

SkinPen® is the only FDA-approved, medical-grade microneedling device available. It has been thoroughly and clinically tested for safety and efficacy and works beautifully for all skin types. This innovative device uses 14 stainless steel, medical-grade microneedles to penetrate deeply into the skin.

The process is safer and cleaner than traditional “derma-roller” microneedling because it uses disposable needle cartridges. SkinPen treatment sessions are also faster than traditional microneedling, and because the needles reach more deeply, the results are better as well.

Microneedling Procedure Details

Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30-60 minutes with numbing cream (or a local anesthesia if desired).

The skin being treated will be cleansed before the SkinPen microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is done, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin.

A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

Ideal Candidates for Microneedling

If you’re in the Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, or Fernandina Beach, FL area and you’re considering microneedling, you may be the perfect candidate.

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of pores, stretch marks, and scars. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need a month or longer to have an effect on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier, stronger skin.

Microneedling is not recommended if you have been on Accutane® in the last few months, or if you have an open wound, herpes simplex, or active skin infection. In addition, you may not be a candidate for microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or undergoing radiation treatments.

FAQ

Is microneedling safe for everyone?

How much does microneedling cost?

During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin and then develop your personalized treatment plan. The cost for your microneedling will be dependent on what’s included in this plan. Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery often offers specials on treatment packages, so ask about current deals during your consultation.

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?

During the microneedling process, channels are created in your skin that make it easier for treatments to penetrate the deeper layers. This is why microneedling is commonly combined with other treatments like vitamin-rich serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) — because anything that is applied to your skin after microneedling will be much more effective while the pores are so opened up. During your consultation, we can talk about what treatments may be performed along with microneedling to help your skin’s health and appearance.

How many microneedling treatments are recommended for optimal results?

Usually patients need 3-6 sessions to see their best results. However, the number of treatments you need will depend on your goals and the condition of your skin. Microneedling can be performed every 4-6 weeks as needed. During your consultation, we will estimate how many treatments you will need based on your skin and goals. Once you have reached your goal, we recommend getting maintenance treatments two times a year.

Is microneedling safe for everyone?

On the whole, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Since the skin injuries created are so small, there are usually no side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be applied to most areas of the skin, including the arms, face, neck, chest, and thighs.
