About Microneedling

We are now offering microneedling with the SkinPen at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa. Get productive results in the tone and texture of your facial skin with our newest skin rejuvenation treatments at our office with microneedling. The SkinPen will produce tiny holes in your skin from the microneedles and your skin will respond by starting to heal itself (boosting your natural collagen and elastin production in the process). Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer combination of controlled physical injury to the dermis to tighten the skin and decrease facial lines and wrinkles, acne scars, neck and chest lines, and mild neck skin laxity. Microneedling can also be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments at our office in Delray Beach, FL for truly amazing results.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for microneedling may exhibit the following skin problems:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Redness or hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Sun damage and/or sun spots
  • Rough texture

During your skin analysis, our experienced plastic surgeons will guide you in deciding the best course of action for your skin and if microneedling is the right rejuvenation treatment needed for your problem areas.

What to Expect

Prior to the procedure, the treated area is cleaned and a thin layer of a topical gel is applied to numb the skin. The doctor will apply a sterile cartridge-tip with 12 micro-needles to a handheld device. The device will be pressed gently across the skin, gliding in one direction until the entire area has been treated. The feeling is comparable to sand paper moving over the skin. The procedure will result in tiny holes, known as micro channels, on the skin which will close almost immediately, triggering a healing response. This results in renewed skin, including a thickened dermis, which will soften the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. The procedure takes around 15 – 30 minutes.

A patient can expect the treated area to appear bright red, similar to a sunburn, immediately after microneedling. The redness can last anywhere from a day to up to a week. The intensity and duration of the redness are dependent upon the number of passes performed on the treatment area, as well as the particular area treated since microneedling can be performed on the face, neck, arms and décolleté. In some cases, there’s pinpoint bleeding. Microneedling allows improved absorption of creams, gels and serums, and our team will determine the best products for the patient post-procedure. These can include bleaching or lightening serums, vitamin C or hyaluronic serums to accelerate results.

Other Considerations

Right after the procedure, patients can expect the skin to glow. Over the course of a few weeks, a patient will see a marked improvement in skin’s color, tone and texture. In addition, there should be a drastic reduction of lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is also effective in diminishing acne and traumatic scars and stretch marks. A patient’s appearance can continue to improve up to 6 months following initial treatment. While some patients benefit from a single treatment, 2 – 3 treatments are advised to get the best possible results. We will work closely with a patient to develop the right course of treatment based on his or her individual needs.
