Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery offers Micro-Needling as a way to diminish the signs of aging and enhance your overall appearance using the body’s own healing properties to add volume to the skin. In Jacksonville, FL, our aestheticians performs Micro-Needling at any of Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery’s five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine, on area residents to give them a fresher, more youthful appearance.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment using tiny needles to create controlled micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin. When this happens, your skin immediately begins healing itself while naturally stimulating collagen and elastin to add volume and smooth the skin.
What is Micro-Needling with PRP?
The superficial micro-channels optimize absorption of topical products. Topical PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is an extremely effective option as plasma contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors and stem cells which are ideal for boosting and accelerating results.
What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling provides beautiful, youthful, safe results for ALL SKIN TYPES. Since it works on the deeper level of the skin, this treatment is ideal for improving:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Acne & superficial scars
- Skin tone
- Hyperpigmentation & sun spots
- Skin texture
- Pore size
- Puffiness & dark circles under the eyes
When Will I See Results?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin may have a red and flushed appearance like sunburn which subsides in about 24 hours. Visible improvements are typically seen in approximately two to four weeks.
Who Performs Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling treatments are performed by our Medical Aestheticians. Our surgical technician first takes a small amount of blood if PRP is included. Our Medical Aestheticians’ expertise combined with the Rejuvapen® adjustable needle allow for an ideal customized treatment plan for each client.
What Does Micro-Needling Feel Like?
A topical numbing gel is first applied to the treatment area. Micro-Needling is often described as sandpaper lightly going over the skin. When PRP is used, it is brushed over the skin just after the aesthetician uses the handheld device. The entire treatment takes about 30 minutes.
Is There Downtime?
Downtime is minimal. In fact, our Micro-Needling Rejuvapen® System is referred to as the “perfect noninvasive lunchtime procedure.” Your skin will be red and flushed for a couple of days with a similar look and feel of a sunburn.
Is Micro-Needling Safe?
Sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips are used during each treatment. There is no potential cross-contamination between patients.
Is Micro-Needling Right for Me?
If you want to rejuvenate your facial appearance without using fillers or injectables, micro-needling may be right for you. This procedure is an option for those who want to use the platelets from their own body to improve the appearance of their face.

The cost of Micro-needling varies with each patient as it is based on the extent of the area to be treated, whether PRP is used and the individual needs for your treatment. At Garcia Plastic Surgery, we accept all major credit cards and offer financing.
