Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling triggers the body’s natural regenerative properties to rebuild collagen and elastin in the skin. Using nothing more than a few incredibly fine needles that create small punctures in the skin, microneedling can achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation that works on a wide range of conditions such as acne, sun damage, wrinkles, and more. There’s no sutures, lasers, or incisions needed – it’s just the patient and their skin. With its advanced mechanism, microneedling is the key to rejuvenating the skin with no downtime and no painful recovery. Dr. Petroff and his team at Petroff Center Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa proudly use the trusted Rejuvapen to deliver every microneedling treatment. Patients are encouraged to learn more about the technique by scheduling a consultation at our Lake Oswego, OR practice.
"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"Humble & Amazing Doctor - I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to have found Dr. Petroff. I was searching years for a doctor that I felt confident in their work. After meeting him for the first time, I knew 100% I was comfortable having the surgery done by him. He has a very humble personality for being such an amazing doctor, and he makes you feel confident and comfortable through out the whole process."- K. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2018
"I just had my nose done by Dr. Petroff about a month ago and I couldn't be more pleased. His work is flawless. I had a huge embarrassing nose. Everywhere I went I felt like everyone was staring at it. Dr. Petroff made it perfect, petite, upturned, just what I dreamed of. He gave me my confidence back. The procedure itself was a breeze. I had minimal bruising and swelling and was back at work in like 6 days. Everyone is obsessed with my results. My only regret is not doing this sooner. I'm so happy I chose Dr. Petroff!"- A.L. / Yelp / Jun 18, 2018
The best candidates for a microneedling procedure will have one or more of the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Large pores
- A desire for a nonsurgical restoration technique
What to Expect
A microneedling treatment at Petroff Center can be performed right here in our medical office after the patient has consulted with one of our team members. Before the treatment, we’ll apply a numbing medicine to make sure the patient is comfortable. On average, the treatment takes 30 – 40 minutes to complete, and the patient will be able to return to their daily activities right after the treatment.
Since microneedling is nonsurgical, our patients can enjoy their results with no downtime and no recovery period. Our patients who undergo microneedling at our office might experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area – almost like a sunburn. These are only mild side effects and they typically last for only 2 – 4 days (although this will all depend on how the patient's skin responds to the microneedling treatment). Some of our patients have been able to heal after 24 hours. We highly recommend that patients undergo a series of multiple treatments to get the best microneedling results. The number of treatments will depend on the amount of correction that is needed, the condition of the skin, and what conditions are being treated. The results all depend on each patient's individual response to the process, but they should expect their results to appear gradually.
