In Austin, microneedling is also often referred to as collagen induction therapy. The treatment is a non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure which can create smoother, more youthful skin and a more even complexion.

As the name suggests, the treatment involves the use of multiple ultra-fine needles that penetrate the skin, in order to stimulate the growth of new tissues and the production of elastin and collagen. Microneedling encourages the tissues to repair and heal, in order to rejuvenate the skin. It can reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks and other skin imperfections.


Microneedling is performed using a hand-held device that looks like a pen. A single-use cartridge containing 12 surgical steel micro-needles is inserted into it, and when the device is turned on, the needles rotate. The pen is then pressed gently against the skin, across the treatment area.

Although only the very top layers of skin are penetrated during microneedling, the procedure can cause a small amount of discomfort which is why a topical gel is applied beforehand to gently numb the area. Sometimes other topical skincare products, such as hyaluronic acid, will be applied just after the microneedling process, in order to maximize results.

To achieve the best results, it is often recommended to have multiple microneedling treatments; the number and frequency will vary according to the size of the treatment area and the type of skin problem.


Microneedling procedures can treat a number of skin problems, including:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Large pores
  • Surgical scarring
  • Laxity and loose skin
  • Uneven skin tone

It’s also important to point out that microneedling is suitable for use on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, back and chest. It is an incredibly versatile procedure that can be used to help a large variety of people and cosmetic issues.


Microneedling does not have a major impact on your body, so once each procedure is finished, you can continue with your usual daily routine almost immediately. It does cause moderate redness and the treated area and can feel a little tender for up to 24 hours, but the discomfort is generally minimal; it can be compared to a mild sunburn. It is recommended that you avoid extended exposure to direct sunlight and to beauty products which may contain irritants. Mineral makeup is a great way to cover this initial redness without exacerbating it.


Microneedling is completely safe for all patients, no matter what their skin color or type. Since the needles only puncture the very top layers of skin with microscopic channels, there is no risk of pigmentation issues or of extreme inflammation. It is a virtually risk-free procedure that will produce lasting results.


If you have scars, sun damage or fine lines that you’d like to rectify with a simple and non-invasive treatment, microneedling at our office in Austin could be the procedure for you.

  • I love this place!!!!! Starting with Georganna, she is so sweet! She is so welcoming. I felt so comfortable talking to the staff about my insecurities which I think comes with age. They helped me with frustrating lines on my face that I have been dealing with for years. They didn't judge me, and they were honest with the expectations of what to expect. Christina has a very gentle touch when doing treatments that I could barely feel it. I would never go to another med spa. I highly recommend Aesthetica Med Spa !!!!!!

  • After visiting other "discount" spas I went to Aesthetica for Botox. They were friendly and professional. The treatment I received finally addressed those lines between my eyebrows. They really know what they are doing. Plus they have excellent specials. They are my spa for facial treatments from now on.
