About Microneedling

If over-the-counter skin treatments are no longer proving effective but you don't want a surgical procedure, try minimally invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation such as microneedling. Aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at his office in Naples, FL. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that increase the overall health and appearance of the complexion. Make an appointment for a consultation at Basile Plastic Surgery to discover more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.

Ideal Candidates

It's possible you could be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or mild complexion problems, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also improve the look of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You need to be willing to wait before seeing benefits from your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require a month or longer to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will see results that look natural and will gain healthier, stronger skin.

Procedure Technique

Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if desired; however, patients typically experience little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is done, a treatment such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.

What to Expect

Following the procedure, you might develop light redness and swelling for around one day; however, this should resolve on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes and long-term skin benefits.
