Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Armando Soto offers microneedling treatments with SkinPen to Orlando men and women who desire smoother, younger-looking skin. At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, we use the SkinPen, a handheld device that gently creates microscopic holes in the outer layer of the skin to prompt collagen and elastin production. This microneedling process improves wrinkles, scars, brown spots, skin tone, and texture. It is ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and requires little downtime with amazing results.
I had experienced bad acne in college and was left with scarring. Dr. Soto is fabulous! He has changed my life! Over the years he has used many methods: laser, skin pen, and the Morpheus. And now I am no longer afraid to go in public without makeup. I am so much more confident!– L.A.
Your Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling is performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and stomach to strengthen the skin in weak areas. Using a sterilized handpiece with new needles for each patient, the technician will pass the microneedling device over the skin. As part of the patient’s individual treatment plan, once the microneedling is completed, skincare products or injectable wrinkles fillers can be applied that will be able to penetrate further into the skin with the microchannels created.
Microneedling Recovery & Results
Patients may have mild redness in the treated area for up to 5 days, but this can usually be covered with mineral makeup. Some patients may notice other mild reactions, including burning, tightness, and skin flaking.
Patients will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, but heavy activity and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. Since it takes time for the effects of increased collagen and elastin to become visible, patients may see some improvement immediately, but most will see their results 3 to 6 months after their treatment.

Credentials You Can Trust
How often will I need touch-up treatments?
Most patients will get their best results after 3 to 6 microneedling treatments, but once the desired results are achieved, patients should continue to schedule touch-up treatments to maintain the results. Patients generally see sustained results if they get 1 or 2 microneedling sessions every year.
What are collagen and elastin?
Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the tissue to support the skin. The supply of collagen fibers and elastin in the body typically decreases with age and the decreased elasticity of the skin leads to sagging, wrinkles, and lines.
Who are the best candidates for microneedling?
The best candidates for microneedling are usually age 50 and under who are beginning to see the start of aging and environmental damage, but they still have good skin elasticity. Microneedling can be used on all skin types and tones, but it is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
