Microneedling (also know as Collagen Induction Therapy) is an innovative aesthetic skin care treatment that promotes overall skin rejuvenation while encouraging cell turnover and influencing collagen production.
Our SkinPen needles provide a fractional delivery to the skin, promoting natural healing to assist in the formation of collagen, resulting in the ability to soften acne and surgical scars and to therefore improve texture and tone. This service has great anti-aging benefits, and due to its regenerative abilities, also can help minimize fine lines and pigmentation.
Individual Microneedling Treatment: $275
Individual Microneedling with full neck and partial chest: $375
Package of (3) Microneedling sessions: $750 = $250 per treatment
(*INCLUDES complementary post care for home.)
As a state certified laser technician, Jena has additionally completed an aesthetic laser internship under the supervision and staff of Dr. Stephen P. Beals, M.D.

1. What are some of the main benefits of microneedling?
A great option for a variety of corrective issues mentioned and ideal for overall anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
This is a safe, quick, and effective alternative to laser skin rejuvenation and one that is considered by most to have “no down time”. Because the treatment breakups pigment mechanically and stimulates collagen formation without heat, this is a more comfortable treatment and no heat means less downtime! Most individuals could have this treatment done and be red for less than 24 hours.
***No cross contamination/disposable needles.
2. How many treatments will I need?
A series of treatments spaced approx. 5-8 weeks apart from one another is always recommended to optimize your desired results. 3-4 is generally a great option for overall skin rejuvenation and anti-aging. Those with deeper lines and/or acne scarring may require 6-8 treatments.
Results will always very per client but most do notice an immediate “glow” to their skin 1-2 weeks post treatment and improvement to skin thereafter.
3. What is included in a treatment and does it hurt?
The treatment will include a thorough cleanse of the skin and a serum blend that is used during and after the microneedling process to promote further healing.
During the treatment, you will know I am there working on your skin, but we do strive to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you by first numbing the skin prior to the service. Most describe the service pain level to that of an eyebrow wax and that it "was much more comfortable than they expected.”
4. What precautions to take Pre-Treatment:
Avoid Retinols for approx. 2 days.
Avoid treatment if having active acne or herpes breakout.
5. What to expect Post-Treatment:
Days 1-2, the skin may feel warm, be tight , and/or swollen and resemble a moderate-severe sunburn. Following after, the skin may lighly flake for several days. Approximately 1-2 weeks after the initial treatment the skin continues to visibly change and overall anti-aging benefits continue to improve thereafter.
The treatments build upon one another. So for example, if we are working on previous acne scarring with deep texture on the cheeks, you may not notice much improvement until 6 weeks after the first or second treatment (and sometimes even the third!), and then all of a sudden, a huge positive difference seems to have appeared out of no where. This is because the skin is going through an on going healing process that continues much long after the actual treatments. I always tell clients to trust the process and commit to a series.
Post-care products are required to purchase and home care instructions will be provided upon completion of treatment to optimize results.
