What is Microneedling?

When home skin care products are no longer effective, but you aren't ready for surgery, try nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling. Medical aesthetician Vivian Mokwa is pleased to perform microneedling using SkinPen® (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Miami, FL. SkinPen is a state-of-the-art precision handpiece that can be adjusted for your unique needs to deliver the results you want. Using a number of fine-gauge needles, the SkinPen makes thousands of "micro" cuts in your skin, triggering your body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that improve the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, such as serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce pores, scars, and stretch marks. Make an appointment for a consultation at Elite Styles Salon and Med Spa to hear more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your treatment for your skin needs and goals.

How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?

The SkinPen microneedling procedure takes place in one of our office procedure rooms and typically lasts between 40 – 60 minutes. Numbing cream can be provided upon request to ensure patient comfort, although most patients experience mild or no discomfort. Before beginning the microneedling process, the targeted area of the skin is thoroughly cleaned. The SkinPen handpiece is then applied evenly over the area.

After the microneedling is finished, a topical treatment, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum infused with vitamins, may be applied. This helps enhance the absorption of nutrients into the skin for deeper penetration. To soothe and protect the treated skin, a moisturizer suitable for your specific skin type is gently massaged in. Additionally, sunscreen is applied since your skin will be sensitive following the procedure. Typically, noticeable results can be observed after the first session, and best longing results after the fourth treatment session.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

At Elite Styles Salon and Med Spa, we're passionate about helping you achieve your skin's full potential. Our skilled professionals are committed to providing you with the highest level of care and expertise to ensure you get the most out of your microneedling experience. We suggest SkinPen microneedling for people who aspire to unlock a diverse range of transformative benefits:

  • Reduction of scarring, pigmentation issues, or stretch marks
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles, lines, and symptoms of aging
  • Improved feel and look of skin
  • Low-risk, noninvasive treatment selection

Am I A Candidate for Microneedling?

You may be a candidate for microneedling if you experience slight or mild skin problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy treatments may also minimize the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment since collagen and elastin require some time to have an effect on the complexion, but you will develop results that look natural and gain healthier, stronger skin.

I had a Hydrafacial with Vivian and it was so great!! I left glowing and relaxed, and could tell she really cared about my skin. Vivian addressed all my skin concerns but didn’t pressure me to do more than I felt comfortable with. Definitely recommend!!

I was very pleased with a recent visit. I had an appointment set at a different salon in the area to get a blowout and showed up to find out they were in the process of moving out! Didn't bother to call me and let me know my appointment wasn't happening.. I frantically called Elite Styles to see if they happened to have anything available for a walk-in as I was leaving for a trip in a couple hours and they told me yes! Upon arriving, I was offering a coffee which they brought to me on a cute plate with a biscuit. I wish I could remember the gentlemen's name who did my blowout. He was from Brazil and super bubbly and friendly. I don't speak Spanish or Portuguese, but he made such a good effort to communicate with me, even though his English wasn't perfect. I am very picky when it comes to my hair but he did such a great job and was very careful to make sure he did it to my liking. This is my new place for blowouts. Thank you!

About Us
How long does a microneedling session last?
How much does microneedling cost?

In your initial consultation, Dr. Mokwa will analyze your skin and develop your personalized treatment plan. Once this is done, she can discuss your treatment costs and what to expect during the procedure. Elite Styles Salon and Med Spa often offer specials on treatment packages, so ask about current deals during your appointment.

What exactly is microneedling?

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical procedure to rejuvenate your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and firm. Eventually, your collagen stores deplete, your skin becomes thin, and you lose elasticity. Microneedling creates small skin wounds. These micro-injuries force your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your skin is healthier, firmer, and brighter.

Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?

During the microneedling process, channels are created that make it easier for treatments to penetrate the deeper layers. That's why microneedling is often combined with other skin treatments, like special serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling with PRP has become known as a vampire facial. In your initial consultation, Dr. Mokwa can talk about what treatments would enhance your microneedling and which can help your skin's health.

How long does a microneedling session last?

Each microneedling session at Elite Styles Salon and Med Spa is tailored to the individual's skin condition and the areas being treated, typically lasting between 30 minutes to an hour. Dr. Mokwa will provide a more accurate timeframe during your consultation, ensuring a treatment plan that aligns with your specific needs and goals.

What is the recommended number of microneedling sessions for optimal results?

The optimal number of microneedling sessions varies depending on your skin's condition and your aesthetic goals. Generally, Dr. Mokwa recommends a series of 3 to 6 sessions, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve significant improvement in skin texture and firmness. During your initial consultation, she will outline a personalized treatment plan that best suits your needs.

Are there any immediate side effects or restrictions following a microneedling session?

After a microneedling session, it's common to experience mild redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn, which typically subsides within a few days. Dr. Mokwa advises avoiding direct sun exposure, rigorous exercise, and swimming for at least 24 to 48 hours post-treatment to allow the skin to start the healing process effectively. She will provide a detailed list of post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.
