Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny sterile needles to create ‘micro-injuries’ to the skin to help create a glowing, more youthful skin appearance. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling creates small channels in the skin with a pen-like device in order to encourage your skin to produce new collagen-rich tissue. Microneedling can help with:
Microneedling is an extremely safe and minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime. With its wide range of benefits, many of our patients are excellent candidates for micro-needling! We are here to walk you through a comprehensive consultation of your skin and create an individualized treatment plan for you with your goals in mind (anti-aging, acne, even skin tone, pigmentation, etc).
Microneedling requires little to no downtime. The total procedure is ~30 minutes and you should expect only skin redness and irritation for 1-2 days following the procedure.
The best and most long-term results are achieved when micro-needling is done in a series of 3-4 treatments spaced one month apart. We often recommend alternating between chemical peels and microneedling treatments monthly for the most desirable results!

"Zand Dermatology has been the *ultimate* find. After months (ok, decades) frustrated with my skin, I went to Zand Dermatology where I met with the most amazing PA, Lexi, for my first ever microneedling treatment. The office was stunning, Lexi was warm and patient answering all of my questions before, during and after the treatment. I saw immediate results from the treatment (it didn't hurt at all) and I loved the glow that my skin had for weeks after and of course, the compliments I received!"

"I recently went to Zand Dermatology for my first microneedling treatment, and I was so impressed with both the treatment and my experience in the office. I hadn't received any treatments in the last year due to the pandemic, let alone step into a dermatology office, but I was really impressed by the cleanliness and protocols. Everything from the beautiful office space and that gorgeous view from the patient chair, to the wonderful PA Lexi, who administered my treatment, made me feel so cared for and comfortable. The treatment itself was thorough yet super efficient, and Lexi checked in with me throughout the treatment to make sure I was comfortable and to explain exactly what she was doing. I noticed glowing results as soon as the treatment was over, and even better results appeared over the course of the next few weeks."
