Microneedling is a revolutionary treatment that utilizes very small “micro” needles that penetrate to the depth of our choosing into the skin.

Microneedling is a great, minimally-invasive procedure that stimulates collagen and addresses sun damage and other common signs of aging. Utilizing microneedling in a patient’s treatment plan helps us reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scar, stretch marks and dilated pores.

When you book microneedling in Zachary at Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, an in-depth consultation will precede your appointment to determine your needs. This allows us to discuss your skin type, your specific concerns, and the treatment area you’d like to address.

Why Try Microneedling in Zachary?

Increase Collagen Production

The microneedling process is performed to encourage skin rejuvenation, your own skin cells do the work by generating new collagen, which leads to brighter, smoother skin.

Improve Topicals

After a microneedling treatment, your at-home skincare becomes more effective as your products will penetrate into the skin much easier.


Microneedling in Zachary is a simple yet effective treatment for scarring and other texture problems. However, it’s also very affordable given how much “heavy lifting” it can do.

WHAT TO EXPECT How the Microneedling Process Works



At Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics, consultations are where we truly get to know you. We’ll listen to all of your concerns, assess the current condition of your skin, and work with you to determine a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget. From beginning to end, you’ll have our full attention and will be treated as a respected and valued guest of our office. We’ll also provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your appointment to help optimize your results.



Your aesthetician will treat you evenly and accurately. Our team is expertly educated and trained on the best techniques to ensure we meet your high standards and expectations. During microneedling, we will instruct you to keep your eyes closed. However, you’re free to listen to music, chat with your aesthetician, or simply lie back and relax.


Next Steps

Once the microneedling treatment is complete, we will assess the treated area and give you a brief review of your post-treatment instructions. At this time, we’ll book any follow-up appointments needed to maintain your overall treatment plan and help you make the most of your results.

PRE-TREATMENT Pre-Care Instructions

Prior to Microneedling in Zachary, Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics Recommends:

Glow Tox Infusion

Medication & Topical Agents

Avoid the use of retinoids, topical antibiotics, exfoliants, AHAs (e.g. glycolic acid) and BHAs (e.g. salicylic acid), and other topical agents that increase skin sensitivity for at least a week before your treatment. Also, do not take anti-inflammatory and blood thinning medications such as ibuprofen, aspirin, ginkgo, vitamin E, fish oil, etc. for at least 3 days to avoid interference with the natural inflammatory process.

IPL/Lasers/Sun Exposure

Do not have any IPL/Laser procedures for two weeks prior. Avoid sun exposure and all tanning methods for at least two weeks.


Do not wax, epilate, use electrolysis, or any other hair removal methods on the treatment area for at least a week prior. Additionally, avoid shaving the treatment area on the day of the procedure to avoid irritation. If you have dense hair, closely shave the area the day before your appointment.


Ensure you are properly hydrated as this helps the healing process.


Tell your specialist if you have been on Accutane in the last six months or if you are prone to cold sores.

Bare Skin

Please arrive with a bare treatment area, clean of any lotion, oil, makeup, powder, perfume, or sunscreen.

POST TREATMENT Post-Care Instructions

Following Microneedling in Zachary, Renaissance Dermatology & Aesthetics Recommends:



Wait at least 4 hours, then gently wash with a gentle cleanser and cool water, using only clean hands.

Other Things to Avoid

Avoid topical exfoliants and Retin-A products for 2-3 days or until the skin is no longer irritated. You should also refrain from strenuous exercise that causes sweating, as well as saunas, jacuzzis, and steam baths for at least 48 hours.


Sleep on your back with your head elevated to minimize swelling or pain as needed for 2 to 3 days.


Do NOT pick, scratch, or scrub any peeling or flaking skin. Allow this to occur naturally and keep skin moisturized at all times with a hyaluronic acid serum.

Follow-Up Appointments

Schedule follow-up and repeat treatments after 4 to 6 weeks to continue to see results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Because the technique behind microneedling utilizes your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, results vary from person to person. However, most patients begin to see improvement about three to six months after their last treatment.

As with similar treatments, results are greatly influenced by your lifestyle, sun exposure, diet, and the use of effective skincare products. That said, your aesthetician will personalize an at-home skincare regimen for you to help maintain your results long-term.

During your initial consultation for microneedling in Zachary, we will make a personalized recommendation for the number of treatments you need. It may depend on your overall skincare goals, lifestyle, and budget. For example, if you want to treat deep acne scars or stretch marks, you may need more than three microneedling treatments to see optimal results.

Before we begin, your aesthetician will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your procedure is tolerable. If you have any concerns about the level of pain you may experience during microneedling, be sure to voice them. We’ll be there for you every step of the way and will walk you through everything you need to know. We want you to not only feel prepared for your microneedling treatment; we want you to be excited about taking the steps you need to achieve your goals.

If you have active acne, you should consider alternative treatments; the microneedling technique can actually spread acne-causing bacteria over the skin, causing new breakouts. Additionally, you may not be a candidate for microneeding at this time if: you have used Accutane within the last three months; have open wounds, cuts, or abrasions; have had radiation on your skin in the last year; have a skin infection or cold sores in the treatment area; have trouble healing; or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
