Many patients are looking for ways to improve the look, color and texture of their skin without the down time typically associated with surgical procedures. The Fountain Skincare & MedSpa at Mancoll Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery offers micro-needling treatments for improving your skin’s appearance. This minimally invasive, in-office skin rejuvenation treatment can improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions. It works by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. This form of treatment is performed by our aesthetician.


How it Works

This state-of-the-art, anti aging treatment is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis that feel like tiny pricks to the skin, micro-needling stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin – producing excellent skin rejuvenation results with very little downtime.

Advantages of Micro-needling:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Non-ablative with no thermal energy required
  • Performed in office with very little downtime
  • Superior safety profile and works on all skin types
  • Can be used on all parts of the body including face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. This versatility makes SkinPen especially helpful when addressing acne scars on the back and stretch marks on the body


  • Treats Fine Lines

Potential Risks and Safety

Micro-needling is a very safe and well tolerated office procedure. Patients can expect mild redness and swelling which usually subsides within 24 hours.  One should always be careful of sun exposure following a treatment.


Patient will experience very little downtime after a micro-needling treatment. Redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure, similar to a mild sunburn. After just one day, patients may return to normal activities and are able to conceal most of the signs of treatment with makeup.


Multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimal micro-needling results. The skin’s appearance will begin to improve as the body’s healing process promotes the production of healthy new cells and extracellular substances (e.g., collegen, elastin, hyaluronic acid).
