The microneedling technology was pioneered and perfected by Dr. Des Fernandes over 20 years ago. The world has turned to Environ’s Microneedling Instruments as the industry gold standard. Microneedling enhances the effectiveness of topical products, restores skin tightness, reduces uneven skin tone and texture, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It has been used for centuries in many cultures worldwide to restore the natural collagen lattice and regenerate elastin due to the induction of growth factors caused by a controlled injury. It provides a thicker epidermis by stimulating collagen, unlike other ablative and non-ablative techniques that stimulate a collagen III response (scar tissue). The results from microneedling are unmatched amongst other treatments due to its collagen I production and lack of scarring risks.
Microneedling is a great treatment for age prevention, enlarged pores, lifting and firming, scarring, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A series of treatments is typically recommended for optimal results. This procedure can be performed safely on a weekly basis if desired.

Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars & other scarring
  • Increases collagen production
  • Improves the absorption of topical products
  • Tightens pores
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
  • Helps treat alopecia
  • Helps treat hyperpigmentation


Results vary from person to person, but typically results can be seen within a few weeks.

Typically, treatments are done every 4-6 weeks, depending on the patient and situation.

There is a slight discomfort with microneedling, but your provider will use topical numbing creams to ease this discomfort.

Microneedling will cause slight redness the day of the procedure and possibly flaking of the skin within the next few days, but the procedure does not cause downtime. You will be able to apply makeup the day after your procedure.
