Microneedling is one of the most effective cosmetic treatments to reverse the signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, and other cosmetic concerns. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this procedure activates your body’s natural healing response and collagen production capabilities to address your skin concerns from the inside out. As such, it’s a completely natural and safe treatment suitable for all skin types. NutriFlo Medspa & IV Lounge provides highly-calibrated microneedling in Coral Springs using the cutting-edge SkinPen device, ensuring optimal results with minimal side effects.
Reverse the Signs of Aging
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a nonsurgical and minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that addresses all major concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, sun damage, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, etc. The procedure involves creating thousands of micro-injuries on the uppermost layers of the skin to activate your body’s natural healing response and treat the skin concerns. The result is flawlessly remodeled skin tissues.
How Does Microneedling Work?
The microneedling procedure is fairly simple — the SkinPen device creates numerous micro-channels on the skin’s surface. However, that simple act addresses all major skin concerns in three phases:
- Inflammation: The micro-injuries trigger your body’s natural immune system to clean the wound, remove the damaged skin tissues, and increase blood circulation to the region to create new skin cells.
- Proliferation: Your body produces new skin cells, blood vessels, and collagen fibers.
- Remodeling: The old and damaged skin tissues are replaced by the new, young, and flawless skin tissues and blood vessels. The enhanced collagen reserves increase your skin’s overall firmness and strength.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Microneedling?
You’re the ideal candidate for microneedling if you have dull, tired, or damaged skin due to environmental factors, a history of acne breakouts, excessive sun exposure, or age. You should consider microneedling if you want to improve your skin’s overall texture and quality. The treatment is also suitable for all skin types and colors because it doesn’t use lasers, chemicals, or other external components.
The following are some of the restrictions to microneedling:
- You should be at least 22 years of age.
- You shouldn’t be pregnant or nursing.
- You shouldn’t have a history of bleeding disorders.
- You shouldn’t be using certain acne medications.
What Happens During the Microneedling Treatment?
At NutriFlo Medspa & IV Lounge, your microneedling in Coral Springs starts with a personal consultation with our board-certified nurse practitioners. We’ll assess the treatment areas, your skin quality and review your medical history to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment. We encourage all patients to be completely open and frank about their medication usage and history. If you qualify for the treatment, we’ll explain the entire process and curate the ideal treatment plan.
During the treatment, we’ll clean the treatment areas and apply topical anesthesia to ensure you have a comfortable and painless experience. The SkinPen device will be calibrated according to your unique skin concerns and quality to puncture the appropriate depth. The nurse practitioner will move the SkinPen device over all the treatment areas, creating multiple micro-channels to activate your body’s healing response. The entire procedure should conclude within 30 minutes.
What Does Microneedling Recovery Involve?
Your skin will appear red, swollen, and irritated for a few days, but that’s completely normal. You can resume most of your daily activities as soon as you leave the medical spa, though you’ll have to avoid high-intensity workouts for a few days. You should wear sunscreen whenever you step outside to protect your skin. Your skin will start peeling and flaking after a few days to reveal smoother and younger skin underneath.
When Do the Results Appear? How Long Do the Results Last?
Microneedling doesn’t produce immediate results because it relies on your body’s natural healing and collagen production response. Over time, your body will produce new skin cells to replace the older skin cells. The results will continue improving for several weeks as your body produces new collagen fibers to improve your skin texture. Most patients need 3 treatments spaced 30 days apart for optimal results.
