Microneedling is a treatment where issues such as sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and more are treated with the only FDA-approved microneedling device — the Skin Pen. This handheld tool consists of multiple microneedles that create tiny controlled wounds in the skin. This results in an increase of collagen that produces fresh, new skin cells. Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is an essential protein in your body that plays a vital role in keeping the skin firm and smooth. As a result, when collagen-rich new skin cells are produced, they can smooth out lines and wrinkles, give a more even skin tone and texture, and help reduce sun spots and scars.
In a process that only takes about an hour to complete, St. George's microneedling is a quick and easy way to remedy many of the most common skin concerns. Our pricing is similar to our laser treatments, and since no heating of the skin is involved, people with darker skin tones will also be able to see better results. The best part is that microneedling offers great results for the face and other areas of the body, such as the neck, chest, back, and even the back of your hands. Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of issues such as:

While the entire microneedling procedure usually takes about 60 minutes, we will ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible with a topical anesthetic. Once ready, our licensed master aestheticians will use the handheld microneedling pen to create microscopic punctures throughout the targeted area. Lastly, they will apply rejuvenating serums that will seep into the micro-wounds to deliver intense nourishment beneath your skin's surface and support your body's natural healing process.
You can expect mild to moderate redness, swelling, and irritation for the first 24 hours. A few days after your procedure, your treated skin may begin to flake as dead skin cells are eliminated and refreshed, and renewed skin is revealed. You will need to minimize any stress to your skin while it heals, so scrubbing, exfoliating, and makeup should be avoided for the first day or two. You'll need to wait a minimum of 12 hours before engaging in any strenuous activities or exercise. We may recommend a soothing moisturizer to use during your recovery.
Microneedling delivers comprehensive dermal repair by stimulating the body's natural healing mechanism. When a series of these microneedle punctures are created on the skin, these minor wounds enhance the skin's natural healing process to stimulate the natural production of more collagen by your body. This means more volume and fullness, in addition to smoothing and tightening the skin. Microneedling offers natural rejuvenation without using lasers or a more invasive process.

Mild discomfort can be felt during the procedure and is minimized with a topical numbing agent beforehand.
Microneedling is a complex procedure that must be carried out only by licensed Professionals. Although you can also find home microneedling tools on the market, the truth is that, unlike professional microneedling, rollers can be extremely damaging to the skin leaving micro tears and leaving much higher risk for infection. Home microneedling may seem more cost-effective, but the safety risk is not worth it. The results are unsatisfactory compared to the results produced by professional microneedling in a medical setting. If you’re interested in long-term effects showing visible skin changes, then professional microneedling is the way to go.
