Medical Microneedling in Long Island, NY
Tighten, lift and rejuvenate your skin.
Medical microneedling of skin also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a relatively new concept aimed at stimulating the body’s collagen and elastin production. Virtual Skin Spa specializes in microneedling services for clients on Long Island, NY. Microneedling helps tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. This treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, stretch marks, and scarring such as surgical and acne scars.
This contemporary technique controls the levels of dermal penetrations through the protective top layers of the skin by an array of microneedles with precise depths by adjustable settings on the hand-held device. Thousands of micro passages within the dermis activate and fuel the cascade of natural positive wound healing by releasing growth factors for eventual collagen and elastin production and maturation.
Microneedling has several advantages. One of the most commonly discussed benefits is the creation of countless micro-channels for the delivery of cosmeceuticals, bioactive peptides, transforming and growth factors; as well as your own live platelets into your dermis for enhanced skin rejuvenation. Our specialists have helped many customers in our Long Island and Hicksville, NY spa to tighten, lift and rejuvenate their skin with micro needling treatments.

The Microneedling Basics
Microneedling is also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), a regimen cleared by the FDA for anti-aging skin treatment and other conditions.
Microneedling produces microscopic channels in the skin which helps fuel the body’s natural defenses and produce a thickening of the skin by up to 80%.
Scars, stretch marks and wrinkles can be visibly reduced with no injections, incisions or downtime required. Though based on principle and traditionally used for facial rejuvenation, the MicroPen™ may be used as a tool nearly anywhere on the body.
Unlike most other resurfacing therapies, microneedling is safe and effective on all skin types and tones.
Microneedling is a great solution for patients who want to find a happy medium between mild chemical peels and more involved laser resurfacing.
Does Microneedling hurt?
- Microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen™ is a fast treatment.
- Require no invasive incisions or downtime.
- During your treatment, discomfort is minimal.
- Skin may appear to have a mild sunburn or feel slightly tight subsiding somewhere between 3-7 days.
- A topical hydrating gel is applied 30 to 60 minutes before treatment to ensure maximum comfort and to optimize the rejuvenating effects from underneath the skin.
The Microneedling Process
The Eclipse MicroPen™ is the device which administers the process. It primarily utilizes a revolutionary combination of 12 sterile, single-use surgical-grade needle tips which oscillate at high speeds for greater efficiency, comfort, and safety! It is safe for most skin types, and because the pen position is variable, the procedure can be customized to ensure that each patient receives exactly the rejuvenation they require for maximum results.
During your microneedling treatment, the Eclipse MicroPen™ is gently scraped across the target area while the 12 sterile needle tips create tiny punctures over the skin. This ultimately develops deep micro-channels into the papillary dermal layer where your skin’s collagen and elastin fibers are located. With gentle, automated, reciprocating vibrations, the micro-channels helps to increase absorption of topical infusions while simultaneously promoting the body’s natural healing response with added collagen production.
The process of microneedling slightly thickens the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and melasma or sun spots.
Be sure to avoid sun exposure and retinoids for the period of time indicated before and after your treatment.
For some individuals with more severe skin damage, microneedling can offer deeper skin rejuvenation with the addition of stem cells and/or hyaluronic acid (HA) into the treatment process.
Your specialist will assess your concerns and the proper treatment for meeting your expectations and desired results. Most often a series of 3-6 microneedling treatments are recommended. However, this is based on the severity of your skin’s condition and anticipated results. It is suggested following up each session spaced approximately 4-6 weeks a part from one another. Skin may appear to have a mild sunburn or feel slightly tight subsiding somewhere between 3-7 days. There is no real recovery or downtime, and you may resume back to your normal daily activities immediately.
You will see firmer, lifter, and naturally invigorated and recharged skin. Each treatment regimen is customized for an individual’s needs and goals.
