What is Microneedling?
Skin microneedling (also called collagen percutaneous induction needling) is a method of skin rejuvenation that involves the use of tiny needles to puncture the skin’s surface and stimulate the skin’s healing response. Growth factors aid in skin repair and reinforce the skin’s structure with new collagen and elastin fibers. The microchannels created by the needles also allow medical-grade serums and skin care products to absorb deeply into the skin. This treatment process can deliver a wide array of skin improvements to create smoother, healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Customized microneedling treatments performed at Aloha Laser Aesthetics can achieve many specific improvements in the condition, tone, texture, health, and appearance of skin. Common skin conditions and signs of aging that can be treated with microneedling include:
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases
- Signs of sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Variations in skin texture
- Large pores
- Acne and surgical scarring
- Skin laxity
- Skin discoloration
Immediately following treatment, a post-treatment kit will be provided that will include four products to help nourish and soothe the skin for four days after treatment. We have chosen from the most advanced skin care lines available to offer our patients formulations with state-of-the-art skin care technology that can support skin improvements, deeply nourish skin, and provide daily anti-aging protection. Options include:
- ALASTIN Skincare®
Optimal recovery products and a daily skin regimen can be hand-selected for you based on the goals of your microneedling treatment, skin type, and lifestyle.

What Happens During Microneedling Treatment?
Before your session begins, a topical numbing cream will be smoothed onto the skin to minimize any potential discomfort you might otherwise feel. Microneedling is typically well-tolerated by the majority of our patients. When the skin is desensitized, the microneedling device is then applied evenly along the areas of the face, neck, chest, or body that are targeted for treatment. The tiny needles perforate the skin, creating microchannels and stimulating the tissue’s healing response. Once the microneedling is complete, specific skin products aligned with your treatment goals are applied to the skin. Depending on the specifics of your treatment plan, you may return for additional microneedling sessions to achieve optimal skin improvements.
What Kind of Microneedling Results Can I Expect?
Mild skin redness is common after treatment; however, this temporary condition should dissipate quickly. We recommend avoiding exercising on the day of the microneedling treatment; however, normal activities (with sun protection) may be resumed immediately following the treatment if so desired. With microneedling, there are typically two phases of results: the first phase of improvements usually occurs within the first two weeks, while the second phase—which involves the creation of new collagen and elastin—may take up to four weeks to become fully realized. Once your skin rejuvenation treatment plan and the skin healing process is complete, you should notice marked improvement in your initial skin concerns, whether your goal was to reduce signs of aging, create a more even skin tone, or diminish acne and surgical scars.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
At Aloha Laser Aesthetic each microneedling session costs between $375 and $500. Please note that if you choose to purchase a microneedling package, the cost per session can drop further. The overall price for your custom microneedling treatment plan will depend on a variety of factors:
- The location and number of treatment areas
- Treatment goals
- Number of recommended sessions
- Any skin care serums and products
During your skin consultation, you will receive a comprehensive cost estimate for your microneedling treatment plan and any additional skin care products. You have the option to pay for your treatment using any major credit cards, or you may qualify for financing through our practice or a third-party company called Alphaeon™ Credit. An experienced member of our office team can explain all of the payment and loan choices we offer so that you can make the most convenient and affordable decision.
