What is Microneedling?
Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that uses fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin, two molecules that boost the health and appearance of your skin. Often combined with other skin treatments, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or insulin, microneedling may help minimize scars, stretch marks, pores, and the brown spots called melasma. At Imperial Dermatology, Dr. Simona Bartos offers microneedling treatments that are highly personalized based on the needs of each patient.

"Outstanding doctor! She finally found a diagnosis for an issue I've been dealing with since August of 2021. She was the only dermatologist who came to see me in the hospital to perform a biopsy, that the hospital would not do. She is very compassionate and caring! Most importantly takes her time with you, not like other doctors who makes you feel rushed. Highly recommend!"- L.P. / Google / May 11, 2022

Our Microneedling Technique
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our private procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes. A local numbing cream is provided before starting the treatment. The areas of skin being treated will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is used to make small pricks in the skin, which stimulate new collagen growth. After the procedure, a topical treatment, like PRP or a vitamin-infused serum, can also be applied to your skin. After your treatment, you might develop mild swelling and redness for about a day; however, this should subside naturally. You will notice significant improvements in the appearance and health of your skin after around 1 – 2 months, as the elastin and collagen levels start to increase.
How many microneedling with PRP treatments should I get?
At first, you may want to schedule a series of treatments performed every couple of weeks. Depending on the condition of your skin and your concerns, your technician will develop a treatment plan to restore the health of your skin. In between microneedling with PRP treatments, you may want to schedule a facial or other skin treatment to exfoliate old skin and nourish new skin layers.
How often should I get microneedling with PRP treatments?
After an initial series, you may want to get maintenance microneedling with PRP sessions 2 – 4 times a year. How often you need treatments will vary based on the health and age of your complexion as well as your goals, so we will help you create your unique microneedling with PRP plan. Your technician will recommend how often you should schedule maintenance sessions to keep your complexion fresh.
Should I get microneedling with PRP or injectable wrinkle treatments?
While microneedling with PRP delivers long-term results like stronger, healthier skin, other treatments provide more immediate improvements. Depending on your concerns, you may prefer microneedling with PRP alone, or you could get it with a wrinkle treatment, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, or BOTOX. During your initial consultation with your technician, they will create your custom treatment plan to match your needs and goals.
