What Does Microneedling Do?
The human body has the amazing capacity to heal itself and repair wounds. Even though our natural healing capacities slow down with age, they can still be harnessed to achieve various cosmetic benefits. Microneedling in New Jersey activates your body’s natural collagen production and wound repair capabilities to tighten your skin, heal acne scars, and improve your overall complexion.
Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics & Wellness uses the groundbreaking FDA-approved SkinPen device for microneedling skin rejuvenation. The SkinPen device activates your body’s healing processes without unnecessary side effects or complications, ensuring optimal results with no extended recovery. Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types.
What is it?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical treatment that reverses the signs of aging, sun damage, and scars from your face. It involves making numerous micro-punctures on the skin’s surface to catalyze the body’s natural healing response and achieve smooth, even-textured, and flawless skin.
Microneedling at Work
Who is it for?
Microneedling is meant for patients with dull, worn, or damaged skin due to acne breakouts, aging, or excessive sun exposure. If you have fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, blotchy skin, or textural irregularities, you can consider microneedling to improve your overall complexion. While the procedure doesn’t have many contraindications, you should be at least 22 years of age without a history of bleeding disorders.
How does it work?
The microneedling procedure is performed using a cutting-edge device known as SkinPen. This device has adjustable micro-needles that make microscopic punctures on the uppermost layers of the skin. The damage isn’t enough to cause harsh side effects or hurt, but it’s enough to signal your body to activate the healing processes.
Once your immune system is triggered, your body increases skin cell turnover, replacing the damaged skin tissues with healthier tissues. Your body also increases blood circulation and produces new skin cells, collagen fibers, and blood vessels. Over time, the enhanced collagen fibers increase your skin’s textural integrity and firmness.
The benefits of microneedling include:
- Non-surgical and non-invasive treatment
- Suitable for all skin types
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Quick in-office procedures
- Increases your collagen reserves
- Minimal downtime
Treatment & Expectations
Microneedling treats the following issues:
- Acne scars

- Skin laxity
- Fine lines
- Uneven texture
What Can I Expect?
Your microneedling treatment is performed at our state-of-the-art medical spa in Aberdeen, NJ, under the supervision of Dr. Patel, our board-certified cosmetic and gynecological surgeon. The procedure is painless and safe, so there’s no need for local anesthesia, but the cosmetic provider may apply a numbing cream for increased comfort.
After cleaning your skin and applying the numbing cream, the cosmetic provider will calibrate the SkinPen device according to your skin type and cosmetic concerns. They’ll move the SkinPen device over the targeted treatment areas while making the micro-channels, thereby activating your body’s healing processes. The treatment generally lasts for 30 minutes.
You should expect some redness, swelling, and irritation for a few days, but the side effects gradually dissipate. You’ll be asked to avoid high-intensity workouts and direct exposure to sunlight, but you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. Your skin might start flaking off after a few days to reveal smoother skin underneath.
When will I see results?
Results can be seen within a week and will continue improving as your body produces new collagen fibers. Most patients need a series of 3 microneedling sessions spaced a month apart, but your cosmetic provider will recommend the ideal frequency based on your specific needs and concerns.
