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.

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.
