Learn more about this skin treatment creating buzz in the skincare world!

Are you interested in improving your sking texture & tone? Maybe reduce the appearance of fine lines, pore size, acne scars, or stretch marks? Microneedling can help to achieve these results! Check out why we love Microneedling.


What is Microneedling?

Mircroneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that we offer at Body Med Aesthetix in which we use a handheld, automated pen with tinly needles attached to create microinjuries to the epidermis and the superficial dermis. By creating these microinjuries, a healing response is triggered that ultimately results in the production of new collagen to achieve the desired results.


What is PRP Microneedling?

PRP, which is platelet rich plasma, can be added to any microneedling service. After a simple blood draw, we use a device to extract the PRP from the blood sample. The PRP is then applied to the treatment area during & after treatment. 


PRP is often referred to as "liquid gold". When combined with Microneedling, PRP enhances the result of the treatment since it contains properties that help tissue heal & generate new cells, ultimately increasing collagen production.


What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated with Microneedling?

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Acne scars, body scars, & stretch marks
  • Large pores
  • Microneedling also improves skin texture & tone


How Many Treatments Will I Need?

We typically recommend a series of 3 to 6 sessions spaced at least four weeks apart to achieve the most effective results. The number of sessions recommended for each patient will be determined at the time of consultation.


Is There Any Downtime?

Patients can expect to see a pink or red tint, similar to a sunburn, on the treated area immediately after Microneedling. This redness usually subsides within 24 to 48 hours. We also recommend that patients not apply any makeup for 24 hours following the treatment.


What Does Microneedling Feel Like on the Skin?

Patients are usually pleasantly surprised by their comfort level during a Microneedling treatment. We apply a topical numbing cream for about 30 minutes prior to treatment to maximize patient comfort. Most patients describe the feeling as a "light vibration" or "mild pinching" & rate their pain level as a 1 to 2 during a treatment when pre-treated with topical numbing cream.
