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
"Best out there, anywhere! If you live closer to Dr. Lee you are VERY fortunate. You will be in the best hands with Dr. Lee and all his staff. I moved to Florida 10 years ago from Califonia and struggled to find just the right fit for me. Some dermatologist offices in the area (which shall remain nameless) were charging 3x the amount! The "shopping mall" skin center had their "plan" and wouldn't listen to my concerns or work within my budget. I was lucky to find Dr. Lee."- M. / Healthgrades / Jan 06, 2020
"I recently underwent reconstruction after breast surgery for cancer. Dr. Lee was extremely professional, assistive and compassionate in all phases of my treatment. His staff was always friendly and worked with my schedule and insurance with utmost competence. I recommend Dr. Lee and his practice to anyone considering plastic surgery without hesitation."- D.P. / Google / Nov 16, 2019
"Dr. Lee and his team are wonderful! I went to two different doctors before I went to Dr. Lee. I am originally from Brazil and I thought that I had to go there to have plastic surgery. Thanks God I found out about Dr. Lee. When I got there the staff at the front desk were very polite, friendly and I felt welcomed. A couple of minutes later a nurse called me. That was Dana. She was very nice, sweet. Then Dr. Lee came in right away. I knew right there that he was going to be my plastic surgeon and I would NEVER EVER have to go back to Brazil for plastic surgery. He was so polite and understood exactly what I wanted, down to Earth, nice, sweet, VERY PROFESSIONAL, did not try to find more stuff to get more money, respectful and I could see why the ladies working for him had such a nice attitude and seemed very happy to be working there. He was the example. I really really recommend Dr. Lee. He is a perfectionist, approachable, kind, caring, etc. Thanks Dr. Lee and dear Dana. You are the best!!!! I really appreciate your care. In the past your office had won the crown for best plastic surgeon of the area. To me you are and always will have 'THE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON" CROWN. Leila"- L.D. / Google / Oct 15, 2019
"Dr Lee and his staff are very professional as well as personable. I felt at ease. All turned out well, and I am having another procedure done."- M.W. / Google / Oct 04, 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.
