When home skin care products aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, consider nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling. Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in Port St. Lucie, FL. Microneedling uses many fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that boost the health and appearance of the skin. Schedule a consultation at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin needs and goals.
You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Microneedling treatments can also reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and pores. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing the results of your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need time to have an effect on the skin, but you will have natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.
"Absolutely the most kind, caring and patient staff and Dr Lee is amazing. He is so good at what he does. I've had a few procedures done both in office and at surgery center. I'd recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is looking for a board certified plastic surgeon. I'm so thankful to have chosen them!"- A. / Healthgrades / Feb 09, 2019
"Real Name- (Diana k.) Dr. Lee gave me injections and my sister a free consultation too. I've had injections before but he did the most amazing job on me and he is so wonderful, kind, thorough and honest. He makes you feel so at ease too with his incredible sense of humor when you visit him. We asked him about several different procedures and you can call him Honest Abe as he was so honest telling us we didn't need any of them we thought we did. In my experience, other plastic surgeons try to talk you into having every procedure they can talk you into getting done. Dr. Lee does not do that! He is so honest and so sweet. We just love him. He is the nicest person we have ever met and so professional. After going to Dr. Lee I will never go to another Plastic surgeon again for anything. I forgot to mention that his staff is also very terrific, caring, kind and polite. I would give him 10 stars if I could. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!!"- S.S. / Google / Jun 07, 2019

"Dr. Lee is a perfectionist (and isn’t that wonderful)... so friendly and professional. I’ve always believed you can tell how good a doctor is by the quality of the staff he surrounds himself with, well he’s hit the mark there as well."- P. / Google / May 09, 2019
Plan Your Procedure
Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in about 90 minutes to two hours with numbing cream. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment of peptides & vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
You may have some swelling and redness for about a day, but this should subside quickly on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments.
