Microneedling - Collagen Induction Therapy
Stimulate Your Skin With a Microneedling Treatment!
An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even stretch marks by resurfacing the top layer of the skin.
The process is fast and minimally invasive, and here at MiraBelle Spa we use a compounded topical numbing cream. This skin needling treatment stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin. Resurfacing the top layers of the skin helps improve skin texture, provides a more even skin tone, and enhances overall skin appearance for a younger, more radiant appearance.
Patients should expect 2-4 days of downtime with mild redness. Microneedling is appropriate for most skin types and most effective when performed in a series of 3-4 sessions, allowing for cell regeneration between treatments. **Please refer to Blood Rejuvenation Therapy as an upgrade option.
SkinPen Microneedling Device
At MiraBelle Spa we use the revolutionary SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics. SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars and other skin conditions for ages 22 and up.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Frequently Asked Questions...
A single session can be completed in as little as 20 or 30 minutes.
After a microneedling treatment session, you can go as long as six months to a year before coming back for another treatment to maintain the results.
Microneedling can make topical products that are applied to the skin more effective by allowing for deeper infiltration. This will allow the products to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers so that they can improve skin quality even more.
Don't put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 24 hours following microneedling. You'll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin.
