Microneedling is a non-invasive way to rejuvenate your skin. Microneedling is used to improve skin tone and texture, treating the appearance of aging, scarring, stretch marks, and pigmentation marks caused by acne and sun damage. The treatment creates tiny microchannels in the skin, stimulating natural collagen regeneration. If you’re ready to improve the appearance of your skin, contact us today to schedule your microneedling appointment!
This therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to stimulate the body’s natural regenerative processes, with minimal recovery time. The treatment involves the use of two procedures, microneedling and PRP (platelet rich plasma), performed consecutively. Our Medical Aesthetician performs the procedures under the direction of our Medical Director, Daniel J. Leeman, MD. After undergoing this treatment, you’re going to love the way your skin looks and feels.
Everyone is a great candidate for microneedling whether it’s just a pick-me-up for your skin or to smooth skin texture from acne or sun damage. All types of skin pigmentation can be treated with microneedling. No matter what skin type you have, your skin can be rejuvenated with this safe and effective treatment. Both microneedling alone and in conjunction with PRP can resolve a wide array of concerns, from triggering natural hair growth in thinning areas to diminishing the appearance of fine lines and firming your skin for a healthier, more youthful look.
Microneedling is ideal for any part of the face, neck, and décolleté where you’d like to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. Other skin areas with scarring, stretch marks, crepey skin, or pigmentation from acne or sun damage can be greatly improved with this treatment.
Microneedling can keep your skin healthy, firm, and supple. This regenerative treatment has many benefits, including:
Microneedling with PRP can be ideal as a treatment to restore skin quality on your face, neck, and décolleté. The PRP natural growth factors trigger regeneration, proven to be successful when used on the scalp to help restore hair growth and stimulate the hair follicles. This option is an excellent treatment for both men and women who are suffering from excessive hair loss.
Treatment time varies depending on which areas you want to be treated. Typically, treatments should take between 30 minutes to an hour. We believe in giving our patients the best treatment possible and for them to feel comfortable during the treatment process.
Most patients see a difference after one treatment. However, you may need three to six treatments on the area depending on the problems with your skin. After every treatment, you will see a difference in the texture and appearance of the skin.
Every patient is different in how the body responds. Typically, on the third treatment, you will notice the texture of your skin improving, as well as decreased scarring and pigmentation from acne and sun damage. You will start to notice hair growth four to eight months after the PRP hair restoration procedure.
Immediately after treatment, you will experience effects similar to a mild sunburn; typically, you can expect minimal redness, tenderness, and minor swelling. There is no significant downtime after this procedure.
Platelets are cells in the blood that play an important role in clotting and also contain hundreds of growth factors – substances required for the stimulation of growth in living cells. Plasma (liquid part of the blood) with a high concentration of platelets helps promote hair growth when injected into the scalp.
Consistency is key for best results with PRP hair restoration therapy. When you follow the recommended protocol, first results are typically visible in two to three months. Results may include decreased hair loss, early regrowth, and increased hair length. Continued treatments every three to six months on a long-term basis may be recommended for optimal growth.
PRP hair restoration uses growth factors in your own blood to help stimulate hair growth. Benefits of this treatment include: Natural treatment, using your own blood, platelets, and growth factors. This is an affordable, cost-effective solution to thinning hair, with a high success rate for treatment. There are no medications or scarring. You may begin to see visible results within a few months.

When Dr. Leeman and his team introduce the platelet rich plasma to the skin, your own concentration of cells will work with your body to naturally promote a “structure and signals” process for new tissue and collagen growth. Platelet rich plasma can either be injected directly into the face or used to enhance the results of other treatments including fractional laser resurfacing therapy, facial fat grafting, Brazilian butt lifts, or natural breast augmentation.
The internal essence of the blood inside you contains life-giving, fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. Dr. Leeman uses platelet rich plasma treatments to harness a high concentration of your own biological nutrient-rich cells and unleashes them to naturally promote skin health. These nutrient-rich cells stimulate the regeneration of the underlying structural integrity of your skin.
After PRP treatment, patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and deeper wrinkled areas, such as nasolabial folds, look plumper and smoother. The main goal of the treatment is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formations in the dermis. Your results will be gradual and vary from person to person based on health, age, and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in skin complexion, texture and tone within three weeks. Subtle improvements can progressively continue for up to 2 years.
Platelet rich plasma treatments are derived from your own biological make-up and do not contain synthetic products. Therefore, virtually any area of the body can be treated, including your face, neck, chest, hands, scars, and more.
In order to enjoy a maximum response to your treatment, it is important to eat right, drink plenty of water and incorporate the facial care recommended by Dr. Leeman.
The laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic injuries in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. Patients are often amazed at how tight their skin feels immediately after the procedure. Fractional laser resurfacing is designed to improve the skin’s texture and tone and to smooth fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars.
Unlike other laser resurfacing technologies, Fractional laser resurfacing leaves islands of healthy tissue surrounding the microscopic injuries. This enables your skin to heal more rapidly and minimizes damage.
After the procedure, your skin will be red, similar to a sunburn. The redness will linger for a few days. By day three or four, you will experience some peeling as fresh, supple, younger looking skin appears. In most cases, your skin will return to its normal appearance in about seven to ten days. After the laser procedure is completed, a cold compress will be applied. During the recovery period you will apply a hydrating lotion to keep your skin moist and promote healing. In most cases, you may resume applying makeup after about three days.
In most cases, fractional laser resurfacing can be performed on an entire face within 20 to 30 minutes. Smaller areas will take less time.
Excellent results can be achieved in a single session. However, if you have severe wrinkling or deep acne scars, you may benefit from a series of treatments spaced about one month apart. We will advise you on the results you can reasonably expect, and whether you may require several treatments to achieve the level of skin rejuvenation you envision.
Basic skincare, thorough cleansing and sun protection are key to ensuring your results last. Wear sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure whenever possible. This is particularly important in the weeks following treatment.
The fractional laser skin resurfacing system used by Dr. Leeman is FDA approved to treat a range of skin concerns.
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but you do not need anesthesia to have this treatment. Our patients tell us that the sensation feels like a momentary prickling or heat beneath the skin. This is the ultrasound energy being delivered into the tissue, how Ultherapy lifts and tightens your facial skin for a more youthful, fresh look.
Your skin will continue to age as the years pass, so you may need to schedule an annual touch-up visit to maintain your results. The Northwestern University study followed patients up to 10 months, with skin quality improvement still visible.
A good candidate is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of sagging and feeling less firm. A lowered brow line or loose skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of maturing skin. We will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your consultation.
Ultherapy is FDA-approved and uses ultrasound energy, which has been used in medical imaging and therapeutics, such as sonograms, for over 50 years, and clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this latest application. As with any medical procedure, there are general safety considerations, which we will review with you before your treatment.
There is no safer way to rejuvenate your skin than ensuring your treatment is performed under the care of a double board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience. Dr. Leeman is one of the rare surgeons who holds two credentials, both as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and as an otolaryngology specialist for head and neck surgery. Never trust your skin – or your appearance – to any practitioner without professional board-certification, particularly for facial treatments.
