As part of our ongoing commitment to bringing you the latest treatments and technology, Facial Aesthetic Concepts is pleased to offer microneedling as one of our aesthetic treatment options. This treatment is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and develop healthier skin. It also allows specific topical solutions and skin care products to penetrate the deep layers of the skin for optimal rejuvenating results.
Microneedling can be used to treat active acne, acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and signs of aging. This treatment can also smooth out irregularities, reduce discoloration left from previous breakouts, and stimulate collagen production. This process can be done alone or combined with other treatments to enhance the results.

Best Candidates for Microneedling
Microneedling is suitable for all ages, skin tones, and skin types – even those with sensitive skin. It is a cosmetic treatment for the face that can benefit those with active acne and/or scars from previous breakouts. Other prime candidates for microneedling include those who have fine lines, stretch marks, and crepiness.
What to Expect
Our microneedling aesthetic treatment is performed by our team of medical estheticians and medical staff who focus on your unique needs, skin type, and personal goals.
Microneedling is a non-ablative treatment that utilizes a handheld device with sterile needles to create tiny channels in your skin and stimulate collagen production. This treatment for the face takes about 45 minutes and is virtually painless with little or no downtime.
Your Microneedling Recovery & Results
After a microneedling treatment, the skin heals very quickly, usually within 1 to 2 days. A small amount of sloughing may occur post-treatment for up to 1 week, but if you are using a moisturizer, it is barely visible.
While individual results may vary, many people experience noticeable improvement after the first treatment. However, more significant results should start occurring after 2 to 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To best maintain your skin and protect your investment, one of our qualified medical estheticians can assist you with an at-home skin care regimen. Using proper home care products in between treatment times is essential for protecting your skin and maximizing results.
Here at Facial Aesthetics Concepts, we offer a full line of skin care and moisturizing products. A medical esthetician or one of our professional staff members can assist you with an at-home regimen and recommend products tailored to your skin’s needs.
To schedule your complimentary microneedling consultation, call us today at (888) 713-7814 or request a complimentary consultation online.
How much does microneedling cost near me?
The average cost of microneedling is around $200 to $700 per session, but the price may vary if you are pairing your microneedling with additional med spa treatments. Be sure to ask about our financing options.
How can I find the best esthetician for microneedling near me?
In order to make sure you have selected the best esthetician for you, make sure your esthetician has experience performing microneedling. They should be knowledgeable and discuss your skin’s unique needs, skin type and your personal goals. Ask to see before and after photos of other patients who received the same treatments. This can help you get a better idea of the results that can be experienced.
Does microneedling hurt?
Many people describe the sensation of microneedling as similar to the feeling of a mild sunburn. To maximize your comfort, your esthetician may apply a topical numbing cream to the skin prior to your treatment. Any discomfort you may experience should be temporary and subside shortly after the procedure. Pain medications are not typically needed.
How long will recovery take after microneedling?
Recovering from your microneedling treatment should be fairly quick. Most report that they are able to return to work or school the same day and only experience some minor irritation or inflammation for a few days.
Throughout the healing process, it’s best to avoid heavy creams or makeup products on the skin. You’ll also want to avoid exfoliation or alcohol-based products for up to a week after your treatment as this could interrupt the healing process and irritate the skin during your recovery. Light moisturizers and light powders may be okay shortly after your treatment. Ask your esthetician for recommendations.
Can microneedling be combined with other med spa treatments?
Microneedling can be combined with other procedures such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) to further enhance the results of your treatment. Platelets can promote the healing process, skin quality, and texture when applied topically to skin. When combined with microneedling, the skin is able to absorb the growth factors from PRP, which helps to further stimulate skin regeneration.
What are the risks involved with microneedling?
Microneedling is minimally invasive and a relatively safe procedure. However, here are a few risks to consider prior to your treatment. Skin irritation is the primary risk you may experience after your procedure. Swelling, discomfort in the area where you received treatment, redness, flaking of the skin, bruising, and dryness are some of the most common risks to keep in mind. Prior to your treatment, you will discuss your health history with your esthetician.
How can I prepare for my microneedling?
As you prepare for your microneedling, here’s a few things you should do:
- Discuss your expectations with your esthetician. According to your aesthetic goals, many find that 2 to 3 sessions can help them to achieve their desired look.
- Avoid heavy exfoliating, or any harsh treatments, prior to your microneedling treatment.
- Make sure to drink plenty of water as you want your skin to be as hydrated as possible to aid in the recovery process.
