Why you'll love it

When you get a microneedling treatment, the clinician uses a pen-like tool to create microscopic punctures in the skin that stimulate natural healing — resulting in a tighter, smoother, and more vibrant appearance. You can expect to start seeing results within a week, and you should notice full results within 4-6 weeks.

What it treats

  • Wrinkles

  • Fine lines

  • Enlarged pores

  • Reduced elasticity

  • Sun spots

About the experience

  • How to prep

    We recommend avoiding sun exposure, hair removal, and exfoliants before your treatment to prevent irritation.

  • How it feels

    We’ll numb the skin first. As the tool moves around your face, you might feel a warm, scratching sensation. The treatment lasts about 45 minutes.

  • Good to know

    Microneedling causes skin redness that lasts a few days, and you should avoid makeup for 24 hours.

Pricing

  • Microneedling

    Your clinician will numb your skin with a topical anesthetic, then use a pen-like tool to make microscopic pinpricks underneath the skin’s surface. This prompts your body’s natural healing process, boosting collagen production and elasticity to reveal brighter, firmer, and smoother skin.

I received a micro needling treatment. The nurse was incredibly gentle, informed and professional and the facility was immaculate and very cool. My skin is also glowing!

I had a great experience here. I have tried places like this in the past that felt pushy but Modern Age was not. The clinical staff here were extremely knowledgeable and kind. The space itself was beautiful and relaxing. I had micro needling done and am thrilled with the results already. Highly recommend!

This was my first time doing a microneedling treatment. I did my full face and my neck and then did an LED treatment immediately afterwards. I have to say, I was very skeptical it would make a difference after many years of lackadaisical sunscreen use as a lifeguard in my teenage years. But I was really surprised to receive many compliments about how great my skin looks, from coworkers, friends & even other soccer moms. I'm totally hooked!

Dr. Datta & Dr. Patel at Modern Age recommended I booked a micro-needling treatment to help with fine lines, discoloration & skin texture. I am officially OBSESSED. I have never received more compliments & my skin is so soft! I was bright red when I left, which Dr. Patel assured me was normal, & pink for ~72 hours. Totally worth it because the results are still going strong about 8 weeks later!

Common Questions

What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that helps improve the skin’s appearance by creating microscopic punctures that stimulate collagen production. Also called percutaneous collagen induction therapy, it’s performed using a pen-shaped electrical tool with very fine needles. The tiny punctures stimulate your body’s natural healing process, prompting the skin to produce new collagen, which helps create a tighter, smoother appearance.
How long does it take to see results?
You can expect to start seeing results within a week, and you should notice full results within 4-6 weeks. This allows time for your body to produce collagen and elastin as part of the healing process.
How long do results last?
It depends on your age, your skin, and your goals, but typically results last between 3-5 months. To see and maintain optimal results, we recommend starting with a series of 3-5 treatments, spaced about a month apart. 
What should you expect post treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, you can expect your skin to be flushed or bright red, as if you have a mild to moderate sunburn. Applying hyaluronic acid serum post treatment can encourage collagen production. You should not wear makeup for 24 hours and should avoid sweaty exercise, hot tubs, or swimming for 48 hours after treatment. 
What are the side effects of microneedling?
You can expect to see redness and swelling for up to 48 hours after your treatment, and some people experience flaking or peeling skin. You might also see small red spots or light bruising that lasts for several days during the healing process. To minimize side effects, be sure to take care of your skin using gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and SPF. 
Who is not a candidate for microneedling?
We do not recommend microneedling for pregnant women or anyone with active acne breakouts.
