Microneedling also called Collagen Induction Therapy, or skin needling is a treatment that stimulates collagen production and gives patients more youthful skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a procedure that can diminish the appearance of acne scarring and dramatically decrease the look of scars from injuries, incisions, etc. It has also proved effective at reducing the color and visibility of stretch marks on the body, giving patients a more smooth even-toned complexion.
Unfortunately, by the age of 25, our collagen production decreases, and by 30 our skin starts to actually lose collagen. However, there are ways to infuse our skin with new elastin and collagen through microneedling treatments. This face tightening treatment improved our skin’s elasticity by puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles creating safe, controlled injury. As the skin heals blow flow is increased the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scarring is reduced.
After you receive your medical-grade facial, your esthetician will recommend products to incorporate into your skincare routine. These products come from the most respected, advanced, and effective brands in the world, helping maintain your results from the facial and keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Commonly, patients use microneedling on their faces to address acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, or loose skin. However, microneedling can also be used on the neck, chest, back, or legs for scarring, stretch marks, and more. One of the best aspects of microneedling is that it can help keep the neck from showing premature signs of aging, or wrinkles from “tech neck” which neither botox nor filler can address on its own.
This treatment offers total skin rejuvenation with minimal discomfort –far less than your monthly bikini wax! To minimize discomfort, we offer patients numbing cream before the treatment to soothe their skin. While the procedure isn’t invasive it does cause micro-injuries to the skin and side effects like irritation and redness of the skin do occur however they generally don’t last more than a few days. Most patients believe that this small amount of discomfort is well worth the truly amazing results of Microneedling.
Glow Up offers appointments with board-certified nurse practitioner Vanessa which consist of an in-depth consultation where patients discuss desired results as well as their skin type and concerns. Glow Up will then create a treatment plan that helps your skin glow from the inside out. This quick and easy treatment lasts anywhere between 15-40 minutes, after which patients receive recommendations for a curated skincare routine that increases the benefits of the treatments and lengthens the effects/results.
Ready To Feel Confident In The skin Of Your Dreams?
Microneedling is non-invasive which means there’s no need for anesthesia, stitches, injections, or surgery. This procedure offers amazing face lifting and tightening benefits without having to take time out of your busy schedule.
Depending on the area being treated and the severity of the skin concerns, Microneedling takes between 15-40 minutes after which patients can return to their normal daily lives.
While Microneedling does offer increased collagen, it can not add volume to the face. This is why patients looking to add volume choose to get filler 1 month after their Microneedling treatment. Some patients experience redness, flaking skin, itching, or discomfort, side effects like infection and scarring do occur in a small number of patients, but choosing a board-certified professional makes that highly unlikely.
Most experience some redness, irritation, or mild swelling for 24 hours after the appointments, depending on the area treated. When Microneedling is performed on acne scars the skin may appear brighter or red for 1-2 days, but each patient is different.
This is based on the patient’s skin concerns, skin type, and age, but most patients benefit from 2 to 4 treatments with 4 to 6 weeks in between sessions. The more treatments you have the more dramatic the results will be and they will continue to improve for the next few months as collagen is produced.
The ideal candidate wants to boost collagen, revitalize their appearance and get glowing, dewy skin! The ideal microneedling candidate has a cosmetic concern that can be addressed through the procedure such as scarring, loose or sagging skin, fine lines, or uneven skin texture. Those considering microneedling should have realistic expectations, and be aware of how many sessions it may take to achieve their desired results.
Those with active skin infections, active breakouts or chronic acne, keloid scarring, psoriasis, or eczema should not receive microneedling. Women who are pregnant or people who’re undergoing radiation therapy should also avoid this procedure.

I went in for tox and fillers for the first time almost 3 months ago. I have struggled with rosacea the last 4 years. No matter what I did the redness and swelling would not go away unless I took doxycycline. I noticed the last two months that my complexion has a normal skin tone and glow. I decided to google if tox and fillers help with rosacea and to my surprise I found an article that says it does help. I am beyond satisfied.
Vanessa is absolutely amazing. I was extremely nervous about getting my lip fillers and she eased my anxiety away and now I’m in love with my new lips and can’t wait to go back, I recommend her to everyone! 10/10 I promise.
Vanessa is nothing short of amazing! I am so glad I found her. She was patient, sat and carefully listened to what I was trying to achieve and has helped me achieve exactly what I wanted with little to no discomfort. The healing process is the easiest it has ever been for me no bruising, no lumps just pure plump! ♥️.
You have no idea how grateful I was for the music and the ‘Calm’ app and your gentle explanation. I’ve never had such a nice, informative, calm experience.
My experience with Vanessa was exceptional ! I felt super comfortable and at ease with her during my treatment . She was very informative and provided me with education and details every step of the way ! Last but not least this lady has such a gentle hand !!! No bruising or pain !

Vanessa is an amazing Nurse Practitioner injector I look up to. I recently had the pleasure of shadowing her during my training and I was very impressed by her knowledge, skills, patient interactions and professionalism. I definitely recommend her for any aspiring Nurse practitioner injector to learn more about aesthetics.
After having a cyst removed from my chin 2 years ago, I would look at my chin and notice that loss of structure. I was very unhappy with the way that part of my chin looked. After having met with Vanessa and filling it with hyaluronic acid, I feel like no one would know.
