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.

    • Full face $700
    • 3 sessions/1 area $1000

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.

I am in my 30s and have been dealing with aging for the past couple of years and have been going to a Med Spa in UES so I decided to check them out. She did a fabulous job on my cheek fillers and the different was night and day immediately after the treatment. Definitely returning here without a question.

Such a delightful experience. The space is absolutely gorgeous and serene. My specialist made me feel completely comfortable throughout my first Botox treatment. I felt great when I walked out and am excited to come back for a hormone panel and future skin treatments.

I had a great experience at Modern Age. Clinicians at other places can be curt and rush you through everything — that doesn’t happen at MA. They even had a special vibrating tool to help distract me from the Botox shots going in! This place exudes luxury and science. I will definitely be going back!!

I loved my experience at Modern Age! I got the NAD+ IV treatment and I felt incredible after. I had more energy, brighter skin, and mental clarity. Plus, the staff and studio space were bright, clean, and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back for my next treatment!

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!

Modern Age's approach to integrative health is truly one-of-a-kind. Wellness trends emerge daily & decision fatigue is real. "What's the best path for me?" has become a confusing question to answer, but Modern Age IS that filter. Their approach offers personalized mapping that ensures you're headed down the right path.
