Microneedling is an incredibly powerful skin rejuvenation technique that boosts your body’s natural healing properties. The procedure involves creating thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface to stimulate natural collagen production and skin cell regeneration. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin firmness and texture, and reduce acne scarring. The results from your microneedling in Clearwater will improve gradually over several weeks and months and look completely natural because they’re based on your body’s natural healing properties.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling treats the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Other facial scars
- Stretch marks
- Pigmentation problems
- Textural irregularities
- Uneven skin tone
We perform microneedling with the cutting-edge SkinStylus and Candela Exceed
Skinology performs microneedling using two cutting-edge microneedling devices — SkinStylus and Candela Exceed. Both devices come in different configurations, making them suitable for different treatment depths, skin types, and skin conditions. The medical provider can also calibrate these microneedling devices according to your unique skin type and goals, making them extremely precise and safe. Of the two devices, our medical providers will select the appropriate one for your personalized microneedling in Clearwater.
Catalyze your microneedling results with PRP
You can boost the results of your microneedling treatment with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy. PRP is a component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors, components that stimulate natural healing and cellular regeneration. When you’re injured, the growth factors in your blood stimulate blood clot formation and cellular healing — this property can be used to catalyze the microneedling results. The procedure is painless and simple, and it can be done immediately after microneedling.
Benefits of microneedling:
- Non-surgical treatment — no incisions, injections, or scarring
- Personalized according to your unique skin conditions
- Can be combined with PRP therapy
- Stimulates natural collagen production and cellular regeneration
- No harsh side effects or complications

Your microneedling experience at Skinology
Skinology performs a highly personalized microneedling treatment based on your unique condition and requirements. The medical provider will carefully examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and curate a personalized treatment plan, which involves selecting the appropriate microneedling device (SkinStylus or Candela Exceed), whether you also need PRP therapy, and calibrating the microneedling device according to your skin type. After the evaluation, the medical provider will initiate your microneedling in Clearwater.
The medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. The chosen microneedling device will be used to punch thousands of micro-channels on your skin’s surface at various depths. After the procedure, the medical provider will apply a cooling gel to your skin to reduce post-treatment redness and discomfort. The entire procedure should conclude within 30 to 60 minutes.
If you combine microneedling with PRP therapy, the procedure may include a few additional steps. The medical provider will draw a small sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP, which will rise to the top of the vial. The golden-colored serum will be drawn into a syringe and applied to your facial skin after microneedling when your skin is extremely receptive. This will boost the microneedling results.
What are the side effects of microneedling?
Microneedling involves mild side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, irritation, itching, and pinpoint bleeding. Most of the side effects will dissipate after a few hours, but you may notice mild swelling for about two days.
Is there any downtime?
Your microneedling in Clearwater won’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities immediately, but please avoid direct sunlight and strenuous workouts for about two days.
When will I see the results?
Microneedling results appear gradually over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers.
How many microneedling sessions do I need?
Most patients need 3 microneedling sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results. The medical provider will recommend the ideal number of microneedling sessions based on your specific skin type and conditions.
