Microneedling at Summers Aesthetics

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Collagen induction therapy is a quick and easy procedure. Patients often request microneedling to improve:
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)
  • Large pores
  • Skin elasticity
  • Skin texture
  • Other facial scars
  • Sun damage


Microneedling,also referred to as collagen induction therapy, dermarolling and skin needling is a cosmetic procedure where a person’s skin is repeatedly pricked with teeny, sterile a cosmetic treatmentintended to help your skin look younger andbrighter. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, scarring and wrinkles. This minimally invasive procedure pricks your skin with tiny, sterilized needles. The process boosts collagen and elastin production, helping your skin heal and giving you a younger look.

At our Medical Spa in Louisville, KY, we use a device called SkinPen®. SkinPen is the first FDA approved microneedling device for the face, neck and “Décolleté”, (the area of your chest and neck that a low-cut top might expose).Our team employs widely-tested, popular microneedling techniques to encourage your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This gives your skin the maximum benefit to enhanceyour skin’s overall texture.

Microneedling sessions can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars (including acne scars), aging or other skin issues. It is non-invasive and sessions are completed in about 30 minutes. Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment is applied to reduce discomfort. To see maximum results, our skin care studio recommends at least 3 treatments 6 weeks apart, or as instructed by your Summers Aesthetics esthetician as part of your custom treatment plan.

Facial microneedling at Summers Aesthetics is safe on all skin types and colors because the skin’s layers are not damaged during treatment.

The chance of change in your skin’s color or pigmentation is very small. Skin microneedling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot easily be treated with other procedures.
