What is Microneedling
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that encourages the natural rebuilding of collagen and elastin in the skin in order to treat unwanted skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven texture, sun spots, scars left from an injury, stretch marks, loose and sagging skin, acne scars and other signs of aging.
Miami microneedling treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses a device that has multiple very small and fine medical-grade needles that create micro-channels when rolled over the surface of the skin. These needles are essentially damaging the skin, which causes the skin to go into a natural state of healing to produce new, healthy tissue in its place. That’s why microneedling can make the skin look extra bright, tight and toned. Microneedling is typically done on the face and neck, but can be performed on certain areas of the body as well.
Microneedling Treatment for Fine Lines and Wrinkles
One of the most popular requests for skincare treatments is microneedling for wrinkles and fine lines. This is what microneedling is most well known for because of how it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, which helps fill in all of those lines and wrinkles in the skin, and elastin, which keeps the skin nice and tight. Not only does microneedling reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also help get rid of smoker’s lines, decrease the size of your pores, and minimize the appearance of scars from surgery, injury or a burn. Miami microneedling for acne scars is also a popular request, because microneedling can also improve the appearance of discoloration on the skin and permanently get rid of scars that have developed because of acne.
Following your microneedling treatment, there are a few things to remember to care for your skin. Your skin will be extra sensitive at this time, so it’s best to avoid any harsh scrubs, exfoliants, products with acid, and stay out of the direct sunlight for about a week following the treatment. Apply serum and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated, and always make sure your hands are clean before touching your face.
Benefits of Microneedling
The main benefit of microneedling is that it is a completely non-invasive and non-surgical way to improve the appearance of your skin, without any downtime needed and little to no risk of side effects. Miami microneedling for dark spots can help with hyperpigmentation and discoloration of the skin. Microneedling can also reduce the appearance of scars, large pores, blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles. Miami microneedling for wrinkles boosts the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which helps tighten, tone and plump the skin, giving it a youthful glow.
Another benefit of microneedling is how quickly you will see results. Patients see changes in their skin tone and texture immediately after their first treatment, and the improvements only get better and better as time goes on, especially if they do a series of treatments spaced apart as recommended. Microneedling treatments are safe for all skin types and have little to no downtime. Following your session, the skin will be more receptive to topical products like serums and moisturizers, which can make your results even better.
Some patients do experience slight redness or flakiness following their microneedling treatment, but that will dissipate within a day or so. The flakiness is due to the skin being a little dry, so applying a serum and moisturizer will help to rehydrate the skin. If the redness bothers you, you can cover it up with mineral-based makeup. Most patients are comfortable with completely resuming their day as usual immediately following their treatment.
Microneedling with PRP
For an even more effective microneedling treatment, some patients opt for microneedling with PRP. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which uses the patient’s own blood to help speed up the healing process that is needed following a standard microneedling treatment. This type of procedure begins with drawing blood from the patient and placing it into a machine that spins it very quickly so that the red blood cells are separated from the platelet rich plasma. The PRP contains certain growth factors and proteins that accelerate the process of collagen and elastic production, therefore encouraging the skin to heal itself even more quickly than after a stand-alone microneedling treatment.
Microneedling with PRP has all the same benefits as regular microneedling with faster, more enhanced results. It works for reducing pore size, tightening and toning the skin, improving the texture and tone of the skin, and reversing the signs of aging. PRP is also useful in Miami microneedling for acne, and it has been known to help with stimulating the growth of hair follicles as well, which means that microneedling with PRP is an option to treat those suffering from hair loss.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
Before going through with your microneedling services in Miami, you will need to schedule a consultation with our skincare experts so that we can determine the best treatment plan for you and your skin condition. During your private consultation, you will answer questions about your skincare routine and skincare goals while we also give your skin a thorough assessment to ensure that you are a good candidate for microneedling Miami.
This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have about the treatment, including concerns about pre- and post-treatment care. The consultation will help us determine approximately how many sessions will be needed to achieve your goals. The general rule of thumb is a series of 3 treatments spaced out every four to six weeks. It is important for every patient to understand that there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to microneedling in Miami, and despite what you see in before-and-after photos, results may vary from person to person.
The cost of your microneedling treatment in Miami can vary depending on the treatment specifications. For example, it depends on the area of skin being treated and whether or not you are including PRP in your treatment. At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, we always have monthly specials which often include a special deal for microneedling treatments, and you can also get great pricing if you purchase packages rather than just an individual session.
For optimal results, we do recommend doing multiple sessions, so purchasing a package is not only cost effective, but also makes a big difference as far as achieving your desired skin goals.

FAQs on Microneedling
What does microneedling do?
Microneedling uses a device with very fine sterile needs to create microchannels in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture. It helps reduce the size of your pores, minimize the appearance of scars and discoloration in the skin, and visibly tightens and tones the skin.
How long does microneedling take?
Microneedling takes anywhere from a half hour to an hour, depending on the treatment area. If you decide to use a numbing cream prior to treatment, that will add another 30 minutes to the total session time.
How many microneedling sessions for acne scars?
Although you may see visible results after one session, the results will continue to get better over time. For best results, we recommend a series of at least three or four sessions spaced out about four to six weeks apart. The amount of sessions to reach your ultimate skin goals may vary from person to person, depending on each individual’s skin condition. For example, someone with very pronounced wrinkles or scarring may need more sessions than someone with minimal fine lines and wrinkles.
Does microneedling tighten skin?
Yes, microneedling helps tighten and firm up the skin due to the increased production of collagen and elastin, which both improve texture, tone and elasticity in the skin. You can combine a microneedling treatment with other skin-enhancing products such as hyaluronic acid serums, ceramide creams and/or PRP for even more successful results.
What is PRP with microneedling?
Microneedling with PRP involves the use of the patient’s own platelets, which is a component of blood, that helps speed up the body’s natural healing response to support the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. PRP is known to help increase the effectiveness of microneedling and give patients even better, more noticeable results in a faster period of time.
Does microneedling with PRP work?
Yes, microneedling with PRP works to rebuild natural collagen and elastin in the skin to achieve a more even skin texture and tone, as well as a brighter complexion with reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age or sun spots, acne scars or discoloration. Microneedling with PRP should always be administered by an experienced, licensed aesthetician or healthcare professional.
