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.
Microneedling Ideal Candidates
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
"A few years ago, I had the good fortune to book an appointment with Dr. Lee. Recommendations from a friend are so important, right? I had no idea at the time that the services that Dr. Lee, Trisha, Michelle, Dana & Sheila each provide, would have me coming back for all my skincare needs. My recommendation? The expertise is A+. The kindness, willingness to assist and first class service is more than I could have asked for. You will not be disappointed!"- A.T. / Facebook / Apr 29, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Lee by my dermatologist after a surgery for skin cancer on my nose. Could not be happier with the outcome of the reconstructive surgery. I went in with a dime sized hole on the bridge of my nose. I came out 3 weeks later with virtually no scars and barely of trace of the surgery. Everything from the scheduling, consultation, surgery and efficiency of the office staff made the entire experience spectacular."- K.A. / Healthgrades / Mar 29, 2020

"Dr Lee is a remarkable surgeon. I had to deal with 6 surgeries in 2 years due to breast cancer. We all need to remember all surgeries do have chances of complications and I had complications with each one. His PA are remarkable! They are very caring and listen to your needs and will help you through the process. I just completed my services with Dr Lee and very happy with the outcome of the process. We all just need to remember; we will not be exactly the same prior to cancer however Dr Lee does an excellent job."- L.S. / Google / Mar 06, 2020
Plan Your Procedure
Microneedling Procedure Technique
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 with Microneedling
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.
