Lookworthy is thrilled the welcome the newest microneedling technology to our menu of services.
The microneedling treatment utilizes 9 mincroneedles to create a series of invisible perforations in the skin. Once perforated, the skin’s natural healing mechanisms take over, stimulating collagen and elastin production and treating skin from the inside out.
The revitalizing RP Complex serum is also applied during the microneedling treatment, with the treatment’s perforations allowing optimal absorption and effects.
Microneedling has shown spectacular results in improving the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and pigmentation problems. Pore size is often reduced and skin is left tighter and firmer.
Package of 6 microneedling sessions (our recommendation for the best result outcome): $1050.
The recovery kit is a 3-piece kit that provides optimal patient care pre- and post-treatment to maximize results and minimize downtime.
- Cleanser: Gently enzymes of pineapple and papaya deeply cleanse and exfoliate leaving skin feeling soft and hydrated. For use in the AM/PM.

Where can microneedling be done?
Our microneedling system is a multi-use tool that can treat many trouble spots on the body, including:
- upper cheek, lower cheek and jawline
- upper lip
- periorbital and under eye area
Is it painful?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area approximately 15 minutes prior to treatment to help eliminate pain. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, though mild discomfort is common. The microneedling tool can also be adjusted to different settings that allow us to address different skin types and sensitivities.
What is the recovery period?
After a treatment your skin will look and feel as if you have a mild to moderate sunburn, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. These side effects typically subside in 24 – 36 hours. The healing process sometimes includes mild peeling in the five to seven days after treatment.
Do I need to take any precautions following a treatment?
Sun exposure should be limited immediately following a treatment, and sunscreen is highly recommended in the days immediately following. Keeping skin clean and avoiding areas such as public gyms, where bacteria can be picked up, for the first few days is also optimal. We recommend purchasing the recovery kit system for the ideal recovery experience.
When will I see results?
Some see results immediately following treatment, while others see them emerge in the days following.
How many treatments do I need?
We recommend 6 treatments for optimal results.
