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.

"When you are looking for getting your youth back, Dr. Schlyer has all the tools available to get you to a beautiful you again. I am so glad I found Dr. Schlyer as he is the best in his field. All my life I had my 11s between my eyebrows. Dr. Schlyer got that taken care of for me and I am amazed with the result! He not only took care of my 11s, but also smoothed out my forehead, and now I do not look angry any longer. He also noted that I could use some fillers to help with my smile lines. I did not even know that was an option! I cannot wait to get that done and look 10 to 15 years younger. Thank you Dr. Schlyer! Annie G"- A.G. / Google / Nov 30, 2020

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.
