Microneedling, aka induction therapy, provides tangible results for those seeking fast, lasting results and an enhanced complexion. Over innumerable consultations in the greater Miami area, Flawless by Melissa Fox has achieved some of the most incredible results with our cutting-edge SkinPen microneedling device.
What benefits does collagen induction therapy provide, and how does the minimally invasive procedure work? The fastest way to find out is to book a consultation and experience it for yourself—but in the meanwhile, take a short moment to learn what to expect at our award-winning skincare and beauty clinic.
What Is Microneedling
Microneedling uses very fine needles of custom lengths to produce thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin. The SkinPen's microneedles are adjustable, allowing your skincare expert to control the micropunctures' depth based on your skin's qualities and conditions.
We then deliver waves of micro-punctures, most often across the face, neck, or décolletage, using the proper combination of force and minimalism. Collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive procedure; virtually anyone is a candidate. The effects of microneedling are astonishing and result in marked improvements for:
- Enlarged pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Scarring, up to and including deep surgical scars
- Uneven skin color or texture
- Crepe skin
The microneedling process also improves overall complexion, lending a smoother and healthier feeling and appearance. Even long after treatment, you'll exude an authentic confidence and beauty that can only come from seeing your face anew and knowing you look your best.
Benefits Of Microneedling Treatment
The successes of induction therapy must be seen and felt to be believed, and the before and after photos tell it all. What makes it all possible is a cascade of benefits that naturally occur after even just your first microneedling procedure:
- Gentle activation of the skin's healing response
- Increased blood flow
- Removal of toxins
- Improved nutrient delivery and breathability
Microneedling also loosens the microscopic debris and oily residue that leads to or contributes to most unhealthy and irregular skin conditions. This further amplifies the effectiveness of many other types of follow-up treatments—especially by the trained, learned hands of our world-renowned clinicians.
How The Microneedling Procedure Works
On the day of the procedure, your esthetician will select the needle's shallowness or depth based on your exact skin type and the condition being treated. Accordingly:
- 0.25–0.5 mm for improvements to the skin's overall texture and a reduction of pores, fine lines, crepe skin, and minor scarring
- 1.0 mm, with slightly more pronounced scars and lines
- 1.5–2.0 mm, to dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, deep pores, and deep scars (such as from surgeries and acne).
Our licensed estheticians will apply a topical anesthetic to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible, then carefully apply the SkinPen at 90-degree angles across the treatment area.
During our highly individualized consultation, you'll be instructed not to undergo chemical peels or to use exfoliating creams, Retin-A, or similarly intensive skincare treatments within a short window before your visit. Above all, Flawless by Melissa Fox values a gentle, non-aggressive approach to skin therapy because, quite simply, that's what works.

The after-effects of microneedling can be like a mild sunburn, and it can take two to four days for the sensations to pass. Your esthetician will provide thorough self-care recommendations to maximize the benefits of the procedure and tell you what you can expect from further treatments.
Generally, clients can expect maximum results with anywhere from two to six microneedling procedures, but a single treatment will also generate noticeable improvements in your complexion and skin health. Depending on your skincare needs and goals, we can also inform you about the most effective complementary treatments, serums, and other options.
The first step is to define those goals by booking a thorough and eye-opening consultation with one of our experienced beauticians at the Flawless by Melissa Fox Miami clinic. To learn more or ask any questions about microneedling, visit or contact us to discuss your skincare goals and desires.
