Microneedling - A quick look

Microneedling, a popular collagen induction therapy, effectively rejuvenates aging skin and evens the skin texture and tone.

This technique involves fine needles creating tiny punctures in the skin’s tissue, thereby activating the skin's healing process.

As the body works to repair these micro-injuries, it naturally boosts elastin and collagen production. This response not only diminishes scars but also improves overall skin texture and firmness.

Ideal for various skin types, microneedling offers a minimally invasive solution to refresh and enhance the skin's appearance, making it a popular choice for those seeking a youthful and radiant complexion.

Frequently asked questions about Microneedling Treatments


Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the skin by creating tiny punctures with fine needles. This process stimulates the skin's natural healing response, leading to increased collagen and elastin production.


A microneedling device (we choose the SkinPen® device) equipped with fine needles creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These tiny punctures trigger the body's natural healing process, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. As a result, skin texture and tone are improved, with a reduction in the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores.

The procedure's controlled stimulation of the skin's healing mechanisms makes it an effective treatment for various skin concerns, promoting a smoother, firmer, and more youthful complexion over time.


Microneedling is utilized to rejuvenate aging skin, targeting concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, and addressing scar tissue formation by treating acne scarring.

The procedure stimulates the skin's natural healing process, promoting collagen production to improve skin elasticity and texture.

This versatile treatment reduces the appearance of various skin imperfections, contributing to a smoother, firmer, and more youthful complexion.


Microneedling is a versatile treatment suitable for various skin types and concerns. Ideal candidates are those looking to:

  • Rejuvenate their skin by reducing signs of aging
  • Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of scar tissue, including acne scars
  • Enhance skin texture and firmness

Before proceeding with microneedling, we recommend consulting with an Aesthetician to ensure this treatment is suited to your skin's condition and aesthetic goals.


Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can be applied to various areas, particularly those affected by aging, scarring, and uneven texture. It is designed to enhance skin aesthetics across multiple body parts.


Facial microneedling addresses issues such as fine lines, uneven texture, and loss of firmness. Common treatment areas include around the eyes, mouth, forehead, and cheeks. It revitalizes the face by stimulating collagen production, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance.


The neck often shows early signs of aging, like creases and sagging skin. Microneedling in this area can tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and refining the neck's contour.


The chest area, particularly susceptible to sun damage and aging, benefits from microneedling. It targets fine lines, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and sun damage, revitalizing the décolletage for a smoother, more even complexion.


The number of microneedling treatments required for visible results differs from person to person, as it is specific to an individual’s skin concerns. While some individuals notice improvements after just one session, typically, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results, especially for more significant issues like deep scars or pronounced wrinkles.

A consultation with an Aesthetician is recommended to assess your skin's condition and develop a tailored treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals. On average, a course of 3 to 6 sessions, spaced several weeks apart, is often recommended for comprehensive and lasting benefits.


To prepare for your microneedling treatment, follow these essential steps:

  • Consultation is recommended: Begin with a detailed consultation with an Aesthetician. This step is crucial to assess your skin's readiness for microneedling and to address any queries or concerns.
  • Avoid sun exposure: Minimize direct sun exposure for at least 2 weeks before your treatment. Always use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage.
  • Skin cleanliness: On the day of your session, ensure your skin is clean and free of makeup, lotions, and perfumes.
  • Review medications and skincare products: Inform your Skincare Specialist about all your current medications. Avoid blood thinners like aspirin or ibuprofen for a week before the treatment. Stop using strong skincare products, especially those containing retinol or acids, a week prior.
  • General health and comfort: Notify the Skincare Specialist of any recent facial treatments, medical changes, or if you are pregnant or nursing. Wear comfortable clothing on the day of your treatment for your ease and relaxation.

Proper preparation is key to enhancing both the results and your overall experience.


The procedure is structured to ensure your comfort and achieve optimal skin rejuvenation:

  • Skin preparation: The targeted area is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, and impurities. This step is crucial for a safe and effective treatment.
  • Numbing cream application: To minimize discomfort, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area. This allows for a more comfortable experience as the microneedling device is used.
  • Microneedling procedure: Once the skin has been prepped, the microneedling device, equipped with fine needles, is gently passed over the skin. These needles create tiny punctures, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process and promoting collagen production. The sensation during this process is typically only mildly uncomfortable.
  • Post-treatment care: After the microneedling, a soothing serum or treatment is applied to calm the skin and aid healing. It's normal to experience some redness and tightness, similar to sunburn, which usually subsides within a few hours to a couple of days.

The entire process is designed to be as comfortable and effective as possible, with your skin's health and rejuvenation being the primary focus. 


Recovery after a microneedling treatment typically involves minimal downtime and focuses on getting the skin back to its natural state. Here's what you can generally expect:

  • 24 hours post-treatment: Immediately following the procedure, the skin might appear red and feel slightly swollen or tight. During this initial phase, it's important to keep the skin clean and avoid touching it unnecessarily. Refrain from using products containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Retinol, or Vitamin C for the first week.
  • 2–5 days post-treatment: The redness may persist, and some itchiness may occur. At this stage, swelling typically subsides. However, it's crucial to continue avoiding direct sun exposure and protect your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
  • 1 week post-treatment: By this time, most of the immediate post-treatment effects, such as redness, should have significantly reduced. Your skin may still be sensitive, so gentle care with a mild moisturizer is recommended to keep the skin hydrated.
  • 2–3 weeks post-treatment: The skin's natural healing process should be well underway, and the initial restorative effects of the microneedling treatment should become more evident. Continue to shield your skin from the sun and apply sunscreen regularly.

The recovery process is usually straightforward, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after the treatment. As always, follow the specific post-treatment guidelines provided by your Skincare Specialist for the best results and a smooth recovery.


Yes, microneedling is considered a safe procedure when performed by trained and qualified professionals.

It is minimally invasive and, while generally safe for most skin types and tones, it's important to be aware of the potential risks and side effects, which are usually minor and temporary.

To ensure the safest experience, following all pre- and post-treatment instructions provided by your Skincare Specialist is crucial. Additionally, providing a complete medical history and discussing skin concerns with your practitioner is key to a safe and effective treatment plan.

For the best outcome and to assess if microneedling is right for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our skilled team.


The possible side effects of microneedling are generally mild and temporary. Patients may experience:

  • Redness and swelling: The treated area may appear red and feel slightly swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. This typically subsides within a few days.
  • Skin sensitivity: The skin may feel tender or sensitive to touch immediately following the treatment.
  • Minor bruising: In some cases, there can be minor bruising, which usually heals quickly.
  • Dryness and flaking: As the skin heals, you may notice dryness and flaking, which is a normal part of the skin renewal process.
  • Itching: A mild itching sensation is common as the skin begins to regenerate.

It's important to follow post-treatment care instructions carefully to minimize these side effects and promote proper healing. As always, it is recommended to consult with a professional before undergoing microneedling is crucial to ensure it's appropriate for your skin type and condition.


The cost of microneedling treatments can vary based on several factors, including the treatment area size, the clinic's location, and the expertise of the practitioner. Typically, prices range from approximately $300 to $700 per session. View our prices.

For smaller areas, such as around the eyes or mouth, costs might be on the lower end of the spectrum. In contrast, treating larger areas like the full face or décolletage will be more costly.

To get an accurate estimate, it's best to consult with a licensed provider who can assess your specific needs and goals. Remember, the cost will also depend on the number of sessions required to achieve your desired results. It's important to consider the overall quality and safety of the treatment, as well as the potential long-term benefits to your skin.


Results from microneedling become apparent soon after the treatment, with noticeable changes often visible within a few days. Initially, you might observe an enhanced glow and smoother texture. As the skin heals and new collagen forms, these improvements become more pronounced.

Typically, the full benefits of microneedling are seen after a series of treatments, usually 3 to 6 sessions, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. Peak results often appear around 3 to 6 months post-treatment, as collagen production continues and the skin's condition progressively improves.

For continuous skin rejuvenation and sustained results, follow-up sessions and a tailored skincare routine are recommended. The time frame for visible changes varies depending on individual skin types and concerns.


The duration of microneedling results varies, but typically last for several months to over a year. The longevity of the effects depends on factors like individual skin characteristics, the quality of the aftercare, and the natural aging processes.

Maintaining a consistent and effective skincare routine post-treatment, especially with diligent sun protection, is crucial for extending the results. Regular follow-up treatments may also be recommended to sustain the benefits over time. During your consultation, a personalized care plan will be discussed to help maintain and maximize your skin's rejuvenation.


Microneedling offers a unique approach to skin rejuvenation, differing from other treatments in its method of stimulating natural healing and collagen production. Here's how it compares to other popular skin treatments.


Microneedling differs from IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments in that it physically punctures the skin to rejuvenate and repair, whereas IPL targets skin issues like pigmentation and vascular lesions with light-based therapy. While IPL is great for surface-level skin concerns, microneedling delves deeper to improve skin texture and elasticity, making it more effective for scarring and deeper wrinkles.


Microneedling and fractional lasers both stimulate collagen, but they do so differently. Fractional lasers use focused light to create micro-damage in the skin, primarily targeting deeper layers for intense rejuvenation. Microneedling, on the other hand, is less invasive and focuses on the upper layers of the skin, making it suitable for a broader range of skin types and concerns.


While both microneedling and Morpheus8 involve needles, Morpheus8 combines this with radiofrequency energy to target deeper layers of the skin tissue and fat. This makes Morpheus8 more effective for contouring and sculpting, as well as skin tightening. Microneedling is more focused on surface-level skin renewal, improving texture, fine lines, and scars without the thermal component of Morpheus8.


Microneedling treatments should be performed by qualified and trained skincare professionals, such as board-certified dermatologists, licensed estheticians, or medical professionals with specialized training in cosmetic procedures.

These experts possess the necessary knowledge and understanding of skin physiology and are skilled in using microneedling devices safely and effectively. At California Cosmetics, our team of experienced practitioners conducts microneedling in a controlled, sterile environment, adhering to the highest standards of care and safety.

It’s crucial to choose a provider with a solid track record and appropriate certifications to ensure both the effectiveness of the treatment and your safety.

"The lower abdomen is less saggy and has reduced in size. It is obvious for me that there is a good improvement and loss in fat at the treated area.Paired with better diet and exercise, I am very satisfied with it and willing to go through the numbness and uncomfortable sensations."

~ Linsay C.

"I had Coolsculpting about 2 weeks ago on my inner thighs and arms. I’m and I was close to my ideal weight. I was told I would probably need 2 treatments in my thighs which was not surprising. I have seen a straighter inner thigh so far and it’s only been 2 weeks. My arms has had an ever so slightly result but again only 2 weeks. Absolutely no regrets."

~Camilla G.

“I've always had a tough time with the fat in my flank area. No matter how much I worked out and dieted it seemed impossible. CoolSculpting was a pain free experience and in a matter of 8 weeks the fat in the area we targeted was gone. I reclaimed my feminine figure when liposuction just wasn't an option for me.”
