What is Microneedling?
When at-home skin care treatments aren't effective enough, but you aren't ready for surgery, nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation, like microneedling, are a safe and effective option. Plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) to patients at his office in Beverly Hills, CA. Microneedling is performed with a device featuring multiple fine-gauge needles, like the Eclipse MicroPen, to safely create micro-injuries on the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the overall health and beauty of your skin. Microneedling can help reduce stretch marks, scars, and pores, and it can be easily combined with other services or products (like PRP therapy or protein-enriched serums). Schedule a consultation with J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. in Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about the benefits of this thrilling skin service.

Microneedling, Immediate Great Results! - Beverly Hills, CA - I'm so pleased with the microneedling facial I had at Dr. Katzen's office. Lorn-Nicole, their esthetician, was thorough in her description of the procedure, explaining how she would first apply the stem cell formula to my face and neck then apply the microneedling "Derma Pen" to help my skin help better absorb the formula and achieve maximum results. She explained there would be some slight discomfort (it was brief and wasn't anything terrible) and that I could expect to see my skin's appearance improve shortly. I was surprised how my face and neck responded so quickly! I had come in with really dry skin from a lot of recent plane travel, but when I left Dr. Katzen's office my skin immediately felt firmer and more supple. In fact, when I flew to New York the next day, a friend commented (unprompted) on how great my skin looked. Over the next days, I noticed the lines around my mouth had diminished and the skin on my neck was much firmer. The care I got at Dr. Katzen's office and with Lorn-Nicole was excellent, and I'm really grateful for this wonderful procedure. I'm looking forward to my next session!
I’ve been getting microneedling done by Talia, the PA for skin texture and overall skin quality and I am obsessed with my results so far! My pores have shrunk and I have noticed that my skin looks and feels healthier!
I had my first microneedling treatment done by Talia, Dr. Katzen’s PA a month ago. Talia explained the procedure and aftercare steps I needed to take. She used a numbing cream on my face to minimize the pain of the microneedles, and took breaks to make sure I was doing OK. About 2-3 days after the treatment, I started to notice my skin looking more refreshed and brighter. About two weeks in, I really saw a difference in the texture and overall complexion. I’ll get my second treatment in a couple of weeks and am really excited to see more improvement. This was my first real skincare "procedure" and Talia did a great job making me feel comfortable and answering all of my questions.

Who is a Candidate for microneedling?
You may benefit from microneedling if you have mild to moderate skin issues, such as decreased firmness or uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You must be willing to be patient before experiencing the full benefits of your microneedling treatment. This is because the collagen and elastin will need a month or longer to have an effect on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier, stronger skin.
how is microneedling performed?
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if desired, but patients typically experience little or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the Eclipse MicroPen handpiece is passed evenly over. After your treatment is done, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.

What can I Expect after microneedling?
Following the procedure, you might develop light swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as your body's production of collagen and elastin increases before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results and long-term skin health.

Is there any downtime associated with microneedling?
Following a microneedling session, there may be some redness, mild swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area. However, these effects usually subside within a few days. Most individuals can resume their normal activities shortly after the treatment.
Are there any side effects or risks?
Microneedling is considered safe when performed by a trained professional. However, there is a small risk of infection, skin irritation, or hyperpigmentation. Adhering to proper aftercare instructions and seeking treatment from a reputable provider can minimize these risks.
How long do the results of microneedling last?
The results of microneedling can be long-lasting, as the treatment stimulates collagen production. However, individual factors such as the aging process and lifestyle habits can influence how long the results will be maintained. Periodic maintenance treatments are often recommended to sustain the improvements.
