Metrolina Dermatology and Skin Surgery Specialists offers SkinStylus® Microneedling Treatment – a state-of-the-art automatic microneedling procedure.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling therapy, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure for anti-aging and scar reduction.  The treatment is highly effective in reducing or eliminating age spots, fine wrinkles, reducing poor size, stretch marks, and scars with little to no downtime.

Microneedling at Metrolina Dermatology

During this procedure, micro-needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury causing the skin to create new collagen and hyaluronic acid, which helps with tissue repair.  The treatment also creates superficial micro-channels allowing topical serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.  Treatment areas typically include the face, décolleté, or specific scar revision areas.  The treatments are typically painless but topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment area to minimize discomfort.


Is there any downtime?

Microneedling at Metrolina Dermatology

Microneedling provides skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime.  Your skin will appear slightly pink to a little red and feel slightly swollen, warm and tight immediately after the treatment.  This can last up to 24 hours. There may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising in the treatment area.  Your provider will recommend skin care products for your post care based in your individual skin that will enhance your overall results.


How many treatments will I need?

Treatments are usually spaced in four week intervals. Typically anywhere from 3-6 treatments will be required to achieve the optimal desired results.
