Microneedling Therapy (Skin Needling)
How Microneedling Therapy Works
Microneedling Therapy, or skin needling, is based on the use of multiple tiny needles, less than 0.25mm each in diameter, to create multiple tiny holes in the skin. The healing process of skin injuries stimulates production of collagen and elastin. The new collagen formed is tighter with less wrinkling and softer scars.
The improvement can take two to three months to produce visible results, however some clients have noticeable changes after few days. Everyone heals different and depends on the depth of the skin defects produced. The results and the time it takes vary with each client and you may see mild redness.
The skin rejuvenation and improvement is enhanced by applying topical gels (Hyaluronic Acid), serums (PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma), vitamins (C) and absorbable nutrients (Antioxidants).
What Areas Can Be Treated by Microneedling Therapy
Microneedling Therapy can be used all over the body, but the face, neck and chest are the most commonly treated areas. A topical numbing cream is used to minimize pain from the needles. For greater skin improvement, multiple treatments are necessary with 3-6 weeks between each session.

After the Microneedling Therapy
You’ll likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment. This can last the rest of the day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth. Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer. You will be advised by Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour and/or our Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group team as to the best skin care products and protocol to use following your microneedling therapy procedure.
The Benefits of Microneedling Therapy
The benefits of microneedling therapy are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. The treatment can be performed on all parts of the body: Face, Neck, Décolleté, Arms, Hands, Legs, Abdomen and Back.
“Dr. Fardad was able to remove the older damaged skin on the surface to reveal the younger healthier skin below. The treatment also helped to produce more Collagen giving my face a refreshed appearance that diet & sleep alone can’t do.”
