What is Microneedling?

minimally invasive skin rejuvenation

With each microneedling device, Dr. Khelemsky can control the depth of needle penetration through the skin and create multiple small micro-injuries, which signal the skin’s natural wound healing process to produce a new supply of collagen and elastin. The results of this healing process lead to smoother and more even skin tone as well as visibly tighter skin. Unlike many laser devices, microneedling is safe and effective for all skin types, including darker skin tones, with minimal risks for scarring and changes in pigmentation. Dr. Khelemsky offers two types of Microneedling services to best match the needs of her patients:

Traditional Microneedling

Using a small handheld device, much like a pen, this traditional microneedling technique is strictly mechanical and utilizes fine needles without an additional source of energy. The pen-like device is rolled along the skin with the aid of a gliding serum, creating small micro-injuries that reach the appropriate depth within the skin. After several passes that take approximately 30 minutes to complete, a liquid agent such as a serum or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is applied topically to soothe the skin and support the cellular healing process.

Secret™ PRO Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

Dr. Khelemsky proudly offers the newest and most innovative microneedling technology using the Secret™ PRO RF Microneedling platform. This device adds the element of radiofrequency energy and delivers heat to varying depths of the skin. Secret™ PRO RF microneedling treatment can reach deeper levels of the skin and produce more powerful results in skin renewal and revitalization when compared to traditional microneedling. Topical solutions such as a hydrating serum or PRP are used to nourish the skin and exert additional unique benefits.

Patients consider microneedling for various skin conditions and concerns, including:


Microneedling has been cited as an effective treatment to improve the appearance of stubborn scars, including those due to chronic acne, prior surgeries, or even stretchmarks.


Microneedling is an effective option to maintain the youthful elasticity of skin and stay ahead of photoaging. Younger patients often note more successful skincare routines, leading to a naturally glowing complexion worthy of skipping makeup altogether.

Skin maturation and sun damage

Skin aging is highly related to UV light exposure and environmental stressors, which lead to collagen degradation and aging. As a result, wrinkling and laxity of the skin occur. Microneedling can be used throughout the year to stimulate new collagen production and powerfully fight the signs of aging including the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, lipstick lines, and even loose skin along the neck.

Uneven skin tone and pigmentation

UV light exposure can also lead to unwanted pigmentation and a dull complexion due to uneven melanin deposition. Microneedling is able to penetrate multiple layers of the skin, stimulating a wound healing response where issues of pigmentation exist. After several sessions, brown spots and age spots begin to fade for a more radiant and even skin tone.

Microneedling Procedure

Experience powerful skin rejuvenation in a luxurious urban oasis. To begin your treatment, your face will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Next, Dr. Khelemsky will use the microneedling device over your skin using multiple passes and specific settings to address your needs. With the highly innovative Secret™ PRO RF Microneedling device, a specific level of heat energy will also be selected for your treatment. Your total session takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Finally, a therapeutic serum or PRP may be applied to soothe your skin and facilitate healing.

Microneedling Recovery

Microneedling stimulates an immediate inflammatory response within the skin due to the repetitive use of fine needles and heat energy, causing visible redness, pinpoint bleeding, and swelling. This response is short-lived and passes after several hours. Patients may experience mild skin sensitivity and light peeling or flaking within the first week, which is best treated with gentle skincare. Most patients return to work or social activities the following day, but you may choose to take an extra day depending on how you feel. Key aftercare instructions include avoiding excessive sweating for 24 hours and sun exposure for at least one week.

Microneedling with PRP

Optimal Cellular Repair

Sometimes referred to as the Vampire Facial, microneedling can be combined with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to aid in the healing process by creating an environment of optimal cellular repair. When performed together, microneedling with PRP has been shown to be more clinically effective in terms of skin-enhancing benefits than microneedling without PRP. Immediately after traditional or RF microneedling, the PRP is applied topically to the surface of the skin, where it penetrates deeply along the micro-channels created by needles. PRP is rich in platelets, which release growth factors and molecules that affect cellular change and induce collagen production. The combination of microneedling and PRP is a powerful solution for patients seeking to enhance their skin and fight the signs of aging.

Microneedling Results

Restore the essentials for youthful skin.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses your body’s natural cellular repair mechanisms to produce collagen and elastin, leaving your skin with a more youthful surface and texture. Using the latest innovative devices, small micro-channels are created within the skin that stimulate the process of wound healing and cellular regeneration. Your skin works to recover and form new layers of collagen and elastin over the next several weeks, gradually revealing younger, firmer, and healthier-looking skin. Additional treatments may be desired to further enhance your results.
