Microneedling is a non-invasive skin care treatment that helps to renew your skin by triggering your skin’s self-healing process. No need for harsh chemicals or invasive surgery; you can let your body heal itself. Coastal Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Lee, MD, offers microneedling to residents in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, the surrounding communities of North Florida, and around the world.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is skin rejuvenation treatment that uses your body’s natural ability to heal itself as a way to stimulate collagen and elastin production and revitalization. Using a hand-held device with tiny needles, micro-injuries are made on the skin. The injuries are so small that no bleeding occurs. The injuries trigger the body’s natural response and begins the healing process.

What is the Procedure for Microneedling?
Dr. Fee uses the SkinPen® for microneedling treatments. He begins by rubbing a numbing cream on the treatment area to prevent any possible discomfort. The SkinPen® is then slowly moved across the face so the needles can penetrate the top layer of skin with ease and precision. This particular microneedling system is able to treat those hard-to-reach places, such as those around the eyes that need smoothing and correction. The procedure takes no longer than 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients may feel a sensation similar to sandpaper being gently rubbed on the skin.
What is the Recovery for Microneedling?
There is no downtime needed for microneedling. You can return to you daily activities immediately. Your skin may be red for 24 to 48 hours following your treatment. You should avoid sun exposure while your skin heals.
