Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is used to encourage collagen production by taking advantage of the body’s natural healing response. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses small, sterilized needles to prick the skin. It is a skin-rejuvenating procedure in which tiny needles create punctures in the top layer of skin with the goal of improving overall texture and appearance.
The purpose of this treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue to smooth, firm, and tone skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and
A topical numbing cream is applied to provide a PAINLESS experience. We use a Rejuvapen machine to perform our St. Petersburg Microneedling treatments, which features 9 microneedles. Rejuvapen allows for adjustments to depth and speed for each patient. We then apply a growth factor to increase your collagen, elastin, as well giving a boost of hydration. For an added bonus, we feature a LightStim LED Treatment to promote faster healing and double the collagen production.

Microneedling has been used for a number of skin problems including scarring and acne. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for your skin. Blush Beauty Center Professionally Licensed Estheticians use thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin. The damage helps stimulate your skin’s ability to heal, so in turn, this produces more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth.
Most people get microneedling on their face, but you can also use this treatment on your legs, back, neck or other areas where you notice damaged or aging skin. For optimal results, multiple treatments will help you to achieve your desired results.
In general, you can expect the results of microneedling to last for four to six weeks. The longevity of these results can be attributed to the length of your natural cellular turnover cycle, as well as how long newly produced collagen can last in the skin.
Microneedling and microdermabrasion are both procedures to improve the look and texture of your skin. But microdermabrasion doesn’t use needles. Instead, a device with a rough edge, like sandpaper, is used to exfoliate the uppermost layer of your skin. Microneedling goes deeper into your skin than microdermabrasion, so it might work better for problems beneath the surface, such as mild scars from acne or burns. Microneedling can also improve the appearance of large pores, loose or crepey skin, skin discoloration or uneven skin tones, and stretch marks.
In addition, Microneedling can also help people who have medical conditions such as Alopecia areata (hair loss due to an autoimmune disease) and Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Talk to your healthcare provider before getting microneedling if you have:
- Acne or are taking medication for acne.
- Blood disorders or are on anticoagulants (drugs that prevent blood clots).
- Cancer and are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
- Frequent skin rashes (contact dermatitis) or cold sores.
- Keloidal tendency (your skin forms hard, raised scars).
- Moles, freckles, skin tags or other growths that change in size or shape or bleed.
- Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
