Micro-needling (aka collagen-induction therapy) is a nonsurgical treatment that penetrates your skin’s surface with fine needles to improve its appearance. This popular procedure offered at our Paramus location can help smooth lines and wrinkles, even skin tone (including stubborn melasma), minimize large pores, firm skin, and fade stretch marks and scars, including acne scars.

Micro-Needling Explained

Micro-needling uses a “pen” with 12 tiny needles which is moved over the target areas of the skin. The needles create microscopic punctures/channels in the skin. The body reacts to this as if wounded, triggering repair mechanisms. As it produces new collagen and elastin, skin condition improves. Through these micro-channels we are also able to apply topical gels, creams, and serums that can penetrate the skin more efficiently, improving the outer layer of the skin.

Although it sounds painful, it isn’t. Before beginning a micro-needling session, our aesthetician first applies a topical numbing cream, and patients report that they usually cannot feel anything during the procedure.

How Micro-Needling Works

By creating microscopic punctures in the skin, micro-needling creates thousands of tiny injuries. This triggers a healing response that releases a cascade of growth factors, which in turn boosts production of the body’s own collagen (the protein fibers that keep skin smooth and supple). 

What Micro-Needling Addresses

Micro-needling addresses a variety of skin issues with its collagen and elastin-producing effects. Unlike laser treatments, micro-needling also works on all skin tones, without causing hyperpigmentation.

Micro-needling can be used anywhere on the body, but the face, neck, and chest are the typical targets. Here are the conditions we treat with micro-needling:

  • Fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Uneven texture
  • Stretch marks

During Treatment

Micro-needling can be painful, so about an hour prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment area.

Once you’re numb, your skin is cleansed and dried. Then, based on what issue you’re trying to treat, an active serum is applied—for instance, salicylic acid for acne or vitamin C for pigmentation.


Micro-needling is best done as an after-work procedure. There is no real downtime, but the patient’s skin is pretty red following the session. This redness subsides by the next day.

Results may be seen after one session, but multiple treatments are usually needed to achieve the desired results — anywhere from three to five treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Results can continue to improve as long as three to six months following your last treatment.

Micro-Needling With PRP

A PRP facial combines micro-needling (also known as collagen-induction therapy) with topical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood. 

This skin rejuvenation treatment creates an overall improvement to skin texture and tone. It can also reduce scars (including acne scars), correct hyperpigmentation, tighten lax skin, smooth fine lines, and minimize the appearance of large pores.
