Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a skin rejuvenation treatment that reveals dramatic improvements to skin tone and texture on the face, neck, or décolletage for months of healthy-looking radiance with minimal downtime.
Microneedling gently penetrates skin with micro needles, creating tiny holes that trigger the skin’s natural healing response. As new collagen and elastin grow and gradually fill in these tiny holes, the skin reveals an intensely refreshed look with a wide range of improvements, from diminished acne scarring and wrinkles to more even skin tone and brightness.
Microneedling at Belle Marin can help improve:
• Acne Scars
• Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• Loose or Crepey Skin
• Rough Texture
• Uneven tone
• Pigmentation irregularities
• And More!
FAQs: Microneedling in Mill Valley, CA
What happens during a microneedling treatment?
Prior to your microneedling session, we will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. We will then gently administer microneedling to your skin using a small, handheld device containing tiny needles.
If you are undergoing a Vampire Facial®, we will apply PRP to your skin after your microneedling session. The fresh micro holes created by your microneedling session are the perfect canvas for PRP, enabling potent growth factors to deeply penetrate the skin.
Does microneedling in Marin County hurt?
This treatment is considered to be quite comfortable by most. We will apply a topical numbing cream prior to your microneedling session to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.
How long is a microneedling treatment?

Are there any side effects?
You may experience slight redness after your treatment, which will subside within a few hours. A few days after your treatment, you may also experience itchiness as your skin renews itself. This reaction is normal and resolves quickly on its own.
