What is Microneedling?
If you find over-the-counter skin products no longer effective but you don't want to undergo surgery, then consider nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments like microneedling. Dr. Arthur Schlyer is proud to perform MDPen microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in New Port Richey, FL. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively make micro-injuries to the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin, which improve the appearance and health of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling may help to minimize stretch marks, scars, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Renuvia Medical Center to discover more about microneedling and learn how we can personalize the procedure for your skin needs and goals.
"LOVE my new THREADS! Took years off my face,... and super natural looking. My friends think I just got a little extra rest. ;) Thanks to Dr. Schlyer's special numbing technique, the procedure was literally pain-free and I am such a wimp when it comes to pain. He and his whole staff are friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Thank you all for a great experience, I will definitely be back soon."- K.K. / Google / Nov 24, 2023

"Dr. Schlyer has been my Physician for many years. I crawled out bed on a Sunday morning with debilitating pain in my lower back that radiated down my left leg. That afternoon the pain had worsened to the point I went to the emergency room hoping to find the cause and some relief. After 2.5+ hours I departed with a diagnosis of Sciatica, and a script for a muscle relaxer. The following day the Team at Dr. Schlyer's office managed to find an appointment for me. Dr. Schlyer recommended a series of 4 Ozone injections 2 or 3 days apart, a means of treatment I had never heard of before my visit. I agreed, and miraculously beginning with the 1st injection the pain began to subside. The pain was gone and the range of motion restored thanks in my ! opinion to the 4 Ozone injections. Dr. Schlyer you once again found a way to help me live a better life. I have found over the years Dr. Schlyer's Team (Heather, Devon, Jackie, Emily and everyone else to be the best I have ever encountered anywhere. Go visit them! You'll be glad you did!"- S.S. / Google / Oct 24, 2022
"I have always wanted to have more fullness in my breasts but haven’t wanted to undergo the traditional augmentation surgeries mostly due to downtime and other risks. Dr Schlyer was able to remove some of the excess fat from my abdomen and flanks and then use that fat to put extra volume in my breasts. I am so happy! I went from a very small B to a full C which is exactly what I was looking for!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 16, 2022
If you experience mild or moderate skin issues, like a decrease in elasticity or rough skin texture, you might be a good candidate for microneedling. Collagen induction therapy treatments can also improve the look of stretch marks, scars, and pores. When it comes to microneedling treatments, patients will have to wait before seeing improvements because the elastin and collagen need time to regenerate in order to impact the complexion. Over time, you will start to see natural-looking results and gain healthier overall skin.
Our Microneedling Technique
In about 30 – 60 minutes, we can complete microneedling treatments in one of our private treatments room. Generally, patients feel little or no discomfort, but if preferred, we can apply numbing cream or local anesthetic. At the start of your appointment, we will clean your skin and then gently move the handpiece over your treatment area. Once Dr. Schlyer finishes the microneedling procedure, he can then use a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for deeper penetration of the nutrients into your skin. Finally, we'll apply a personalized moisturizer with sun protection because your skin will be sensitive after the procedure.
What to Expect
For about a day, you might experience mild swelling and redness, but this should subside quickly on its own. Additionally, we'll provide detailed instructions on caring for your skin following the procedure. Some of these instructions may include:
- Waiting four hours to wash your face
- Avoiding anti-inflammatory medications
- Applying a gentle cleanser or moisturizer
It may take around 1 – 2 months, as the elastin and collagen supply increases, before you notice significant improvements in the appearance and health of your complexion. You should plan to get around 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and long-lasting skin health.
