Safe & Effective Microneedling
Modern technology has allowed for the creation of numerous safe and effective treatments to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Microneedling is one of the more effective anti-aging services available today.
This treatment can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and large pores. After your microneedling treatment, your skin will feel smooth and appear more youthful.
At Becker Cosmetic, we offer professional microneedling services using the industry's safest, most effective devices and techniques. Schedule a consultation to meet with one of our master estheticians and learn whether microneedling is right for you.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe, minimally invasive anti-aging treatment that uses fine-tipped needles to penetrate the skin. These needles create microscopic injuries in the skin, triggering a healing response that produces new collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin will heal with a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What to Expect in a Microneedling Appointment
Before you arrive at your microneedling appointment, you should take a few steps to prepare your skin.
First, you will need to stop using retinoids and acid-based skin care products in the days before your microneedling session. We also recommend washing the target area before your appointment to remove lotions, perfumes, serums, and make-up.
At your appointment, we will follow these steps:

Apply numbing cream to the target area to eliminate sensation during treatment.
Apply a hyaluronic acid, a peptide serum, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) serum. (Optional)
Pass a small microneedling pen over the target area in circular movements, focusing on scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
Apply a moisturizer and healing cream.
You should begin seeing skin rejuvenation results within one week after your first treatment. However, a full result and collagen remodeling can take up to 12 weeks. We typically recommend completing three treatments to see the most noticeable results.
INTRAcel™ microneedling, otherwise known as microneedling with radio frequency, is similar to standard microneedling, but with an added “boost” of heat to the dermis.
Using a stamping technique when the needles enter the skin, this device does not interrupt or damage the visible outer layers of the skin due to the patented insulated needles. Once through the outer layers of skin, the uninsulated tip (.2 mm) of the needles “zap” with radio frequency heat. This advanced process creates a larger controlled injury deep within the skin, which is expanded by the radio frequency to boost collagen and elastin.
The INTRAcel™ microneedling treatment is excellent for those looking to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, skin laxity, stretch marks, and scars, and for stimulating collagen production. To personalize this treatment for you, our master estheticians will decide between 4 different controlled depths for maximized results!

The effects of Microneedling continue to improve skin health for up to three months after the treatment. Depending on at-home skin care and maintenance, generated collagen can last up to a year.
Microneedling uses a number of fine-tipped needles that rapidly penetrate the skin at a controlled depth. Creating a controlled injury within the skin, this process triggers a cascade of healing which generates new collagen and elastin. This helps build back lost collagen that dissipates after age of 30, and breaks up scar tissue for acne scarring or stretch marks to allow healthy new collagen to replace the damaged scar tissue.
Microneedling is often offered in a series of three treatments (once per month) when striving for specific results such as anti-aging or to reduce the appearance of scarring. As everyone's skin is unique, additional treatments may be needed for desired results. Once in maintenance mode, microneedling should be done quarterly.
Yes, Microneedling is good and safe for the skin. The micro injuries caused by this treatment works to stimulate the healing process and increase blood flow to nourish the skin.
Microneedling cost, on average, ranges from $300 to $750 per session. This treatment involves using a device with tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulates collagen production and can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The number of sessions required can vary depending on the desired results and the individual's skin condition.
