Atlanta Microneedling to Boost Collagen Rejuvenation
Microneedling is a time-tested skin rejuvenation procedure considered to be one of the safest methods for natural skincare. Not only does microneedling improve problem areas of the skin, it is also an effective collagen remodeling treatment that continues to improve skin’s appearance weeks after treatment.
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime and little pain. During the treatment, a pen-like tool utilizing small needles is rolled across the skin to create tiny, precisely spaced micro-channels or perforations—without damaging the epidermis or the outer layer of skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates production of collagen and elastin within those micro-injury sites.
Microneedling Benefits Help Achieve Renewed Skin
Microneedling treatments at our medical spa in Buckhead, Atlanta can be used to rejuvenate skin tone, texture, color and pore size as well as to treat a variety of skin issues including acne and surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, stretchmarks, hyperpigmentation and more!
There are many excellent benefits of microneedling, including the fact that it’s safe for all skin types and colors, without risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In addition, the microneedling process effectively treats skin concerns on multiple areas of the body such as the face, neck, décolletage, chest, hands and knees.
To achieve optimal benefits from microneedling, we generally recommend a series of treatments over several months. For many clients, the best microneedling results are achieved when the microneedling technique is used in conjunction with your own platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to speed skin healing and natural recovery. Our skilled, licensed Atlanta medical spa team will work with you to customize a treatment plan that addresses your concerns, achieves your cosmetic goals and maximizes your skin rejuvenation microneedling benefits.
What to Expect with a Microneedling Facial
Your comfort is our priority! During your Microneedling treatment at our Altanta medical spa, we will cleanse your skin of oil and debris and apply a topical anesthetic to keep you pain-free and comfortable throughout the procedure. Once your skin is numb, we’ll remove the topical and begin treatment.
Our aesthetician will roll the pen-like device over your skin, making very small punctures. There will be a little bleeding due to the needles, but it is very light and will stop before you leave the medspa. The micro-pen portion of a microneedling treatment takes about 15 minutes, followed by the application of enhancements such as platelet-rich plasma. Once complete, a cooling mask will be applied and you’ll rest comfortably in a relaxing treatment room for about a half an hour.
Medical Microneedling with PRP at Our Atlanta MedSpa
Because every client has a unique combination of skin type, issues, needs and personal goals, we believe it’s important to provide customized treatment options. Many of our Atlanta area clients choose to combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) during treatment to enhance results.
Microneedling with PRP is very safe and highly effective. Platelet-rich plasma is found within your very own blood. It contains dozens of growth factors, which have healing and regeneration properties. When used in conjunction with microneedling, PRP delivers an added boost of collagen production and rejuvenation and allows the body to take advantage of normal healing pathways at a highly accelerated rate.
Microneedling Side Effects & Recovery Expectations
Microneedling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses very fine, short, sterile needles to create tiny puncture wounds in your skin. The Microneedling process stimulates natural healing and boosts both collagen and elastin production, and we recommend clients plan a day or two of downtime for microneedling recovery.
Immediately following treatment, your skin will be very red and possibly swollen. Your skin may also feel hot and tight, similar to a sunburn and experience some pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising―all normal and expected microneedling side effects. We will provide you with detailed post treatment instructions to facilitate microneedling recovery. Within 48 hours, skin generally returns to its regular color and gentle topical products are allowed. And within a week or two of microneedling, most clients report enjoying smoother, more radiant skin with a beautiful glow!

Regenerative MedSpa of Buckhead Microneedling FAQs:
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, with PRP and without, is a skin rejuvenation treatment procedure that involves an electric skin-needling device. At Regnerative MedSpa of Buckhead, we use the SkinPen, the leading technology on the market and first device FDA-cleared for this purpose. The device contains 14 very fine needles. It is used during microneedling procedures to break down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber, which leads to improved blood flow, creating smoother and brighter skin.
What conditions does Microneedling treat?
Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne and surgery scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, hyperpigmentation and stretchmarks.
How does Microneedling work?
The microneedling pen-like device slides along the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles and creating a smoother, more even skin tone and texture.
How quickly does Microneedling work?
Some benefits of microneedling such as smoother, brighter skin may be visible within days of treatment because microneedling triggers your body's wound healing processes to heal your micro wounds immediately. The most dramatic results will not be visible until four to six weeks after treatment. It takes roughly this long for your body to create new, strong, healthy collagen.
What does the Microneedling procedure involve?
The skin is cleaned and numbing cream applied to lessen discomfort. For better results we may recommend using a collagen-stimulating product like Platelet-Rich Plasma, Vitamin-C serum or skin lightener for pigmentation during the procedure. The pen-like device is rolled over the skin, making very small punctures. There will be a little bleeding due to the needles, but it is very light and will generally stop before you leave the medspa. The micro-pen portion of a microneedling treatment takes about 15 minutes, followed by the application of any enhancement serums. Once complete, a cooling mask will be applied and you’ll rest comfortably for about a half an hour.
Is Microneedling painful?
Your comfort during the treatment is a top priority for us. Prior to microneedling, an anesthetic numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
How long is your face red after Microneedling?
Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. Within 24-48 hours, your skin should fade from red to pink and the swelling should go down, though you may experience some sensitivity for a few days. We will provide you detailed post treatment instructions to help ensure your comfort and facilitate the healing process.
What is the recovery/downtime after Microneedling?
After treatment, your skin may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours and somewhat sensitive for a few days. Wash skin with a gentle cleanser and cool water, and pat dry with your hands. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can also help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup during recovery. We will provide you detailed post treatment instructions to help ensure your comfort and facilitate the healing process.
What will I look like after my Microneedling treatment?
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take several weeks to months to appear.
What are the side effects of Microneedling?
Aside from normal short-term and minimal post-treatment downtime, there are virtually no negative side effects to microneedling.
How many Microneedling treatments do I need and how often can Microneedling be repeated?
Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we generally recommend starting with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction, an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended.
