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 is meticulous! - Four months ago Dr. Petroff performed my lower facelift and chin implant surgery and in my opinion the experience and results are the finest possible.I’ve had 3 prior plastic surgeries mostly on a congenital body issue. Two of the surgeries successful, and one, a very bad experience. I’m knowledgeable of what can go right, or wrong, with a surgeon. I spent two years researching phy..."- P. / RealSelf / Jan 25, 2018
"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Petroff or his staff! I got a rhinoplasty done at the Petroff Center 6 months ago and I'm absolutely obsessed with how my nose turned out. The entire process was so much easier than I thought it was going to be and I know that's because of the expertise of Dr. Petroff! I barely bruised, had minimal swelling and healed extremely fast. He somehow managed to give me everything I wanted out of my surgery and more. He has the absolute perfect eye for rhinoplasty, I constantly get compliments about how natural my nose looks now, and how it looks like the nose I should've had! Not only that his staff is amazing, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful! I can't even begin to describe how absolutely beautiful and happy I feel because of this surgery and I'm so so glad I chose The Petroff Center. If you're wanting a rhinoplasty; especially in Oregon there's just no one better than Dr. Petroff!!"- S.R. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2017
"I've had multiple treatments of lip injections from Dr. Petroff and I can honestly say he is the only doctor I will trust in the Portland area. He listened to my request and concerns on how I liked the shape of my lips. He is very knowledgeable on what types of injectables I would benefit from and what injections may not work the best for me. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this facility."- T.R. / Yelp / Dec 09, 2017
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.
