Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy that will rejuvenate your skin with the use of microscopic needles. Microneedling is a great treatment for overall skin rejuvenation, Acne Scarring, and is used for the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone.
Microneedling In Portland Oregon at Cascade Medical Spa
At Cascade, we use the latest technological microneedling pen and also offer a PRP option. The penetration of needles in the skin creates microscopic channels into the dermal layer. Combining microneedling and your own growth factors (PRP) will then stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and regenerate your skin at the cellular level.
This procedure is minimally invasive. The very fine needles in the pen create micro-injury to the tissues of the face, neck, décolletage and even hands. This also removes discoloration and improves skin elasticity.

Microneedling vs Other Treatments such as Lasers or Chemical Peels
- Microneedling is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones where lasers can cause hypopigmentation
- There is a very short downtime with no risk of peeling or shedding of skin.
- Makeup can be applied 8-10 hours after treatment.
- Risk of experiencing side effects is minimal
- Long lasting effects with minimal investment. (we recommend 3-6 treatments for maximum benefit, but you will notice improvement after just one treatment)
The microneedling pen adjusts to varying depths to penetrate scar tissue. This breaks down scar structure and stimulates the formation of new collagen. Microneedling can be used to improve depressed scars such as acne scars, stretch marks, and also raised scars or surgical scars.
A series of 3 or 4 treatments is recommended. Here is some good results after 3 sessions from some fantastic customers!
How many treatments do I need?
For optimal results, we recommend a series of treatments depending on your concern, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Nightly use of the appropriate PCA retinol product is highly recommended. For scar revision, more treatments may be needed depending on the severity of the scar. Our Practitioner will talk with you during your free consultation to determine your best option.
Microneedling treatments can average around $275 per treatment but we often cater a package to fit your individual needs. Most of Cascade’s patients are pleasantly surprised at the overall cost and our affordable pricing.
