What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used on the face, neck, neckline, arms, hands, legs, and abdomen. This treatment is great for addressing acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and overall skin rejuvenation.

Who is a candidate?

Individuals of all skin tones and types can benefit from microneedling. Those who wish to combat signs of aging, as well as rejuvenate their complexion are often good candidates. A consultation with Dr. Shienbaum can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.

How is treatment done?

Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the targeted areas to ensure patient comfort. Microneedling utilizes a powered handpiece that creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This helps to improve the skin’s texture, diminish hyperpigmentation, and smooth lines and wrinkles. Most patients require a series of microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results.


Following a microneedling treatment, patients can expect to experience redness in the treatment area for up to five days. A mild burning sensation, feeling of tightness, and flaking may occur during recovery. Results will be noticeable within a couple of weeks.
