Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure that improves the tone and texture of the skin, diminishes surface imperfections, and imparts firmness and smoothness to the skin.
Among the many procedures developed in recent years to improve the condition of the skin, increase the production of collagen and elastin, and restore a youthful and firm appearance, microneedling stands out as one of the most effective. Microneedling has earned the respect of both medical practitioners and patients because it produces dramatic, long-lasting results, with continued improvements if the procedure is repeated over time.
Microneedling is performed using a medical-grade device that gently creates tiny punctures in the skin’s surface layer by means of minuscule needles that are rolled over the skin’s surface. Because our body responds to these tiny punctures as injuries, the procedure triggers the body’s natural healing mechanisms and stimulates a natural process of repairing and nurturing the skin.
The process of healing and repair produces a renewal of the skin’s surface layer, triggering the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These two natural substances are known to be the most essential structural elements of healthy skin, providing structural support for skin cells and producing firm, youthful skin tone, and increased radiance.
PRP or PRF injections may also be combined with microneedling to produce more dramatic improvements than a microneedling treatment alone. PRP injections enhance the microneedling treatment by providing the skin with essential proteins and other nutrients derived from the patient’s own blood and plasma.
These treatments produce improved skin tone and texture and are particularly recommended for those with discoloration, rosacea, acne scars, and other conditions involving imperfections that are visible on the surface of the skin. Once you've elected to receive microneedling Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chelsea Troiano will review the condition of your skin to determine which additional solution would best treat your concerns.

Microneedling produces results that will be visible immediately, as well as continued improvements that will increase gradually over time, as your body begins to increase its production of collagen and elastin.
The full effects of your treatment will be visible about 6-8 weeks following your initial session. Overall improvements in your skin quality will continue to become apparent over 3-4 months. You can maintain your results by scheduling regular follow-up sessions every six weeks or so in the beginning and then spreading them out for maintenance.
Cosmetic enhancement procedures are generally not covered by health insurance, as they are considered elective treatments.
Microneedling treatments can sound scary due to the micro punctures made in your skin. In reality, the procedure is minimally painful and most patients find it easy to undergo. Topical numbing agents can be applied ahead of time to reduce any discomfort you feel during the application.
Microneedling repairs the skin’s outermost layers that have been damaged by excessive sun exposure, acne, traumatic scars, aging, gravity, or environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke and air pollution.
Microneedling effectively reduces the appearance of imperfections on the surface of the skin, including acne scars, age spots, stretch marks, and discoloration. The procedure is a simple outpatient procedure that typically takes only about 20 minutes to an hour to complete, and you may return to your normal activities right away.
