The nitty-gritty.

At BeFlawless in East Greenwich, RI, our MicroNeedling treatments greatly reduce the damage caused by acne, sun, and aging. MicroNeedling triggers the body’s natural wound-healing process, causing it to produce collagen and elastin. The results are smoother, softer, glowing skin.

Both of our MicroNeedling Series include three treatments with four weeks between each treatment. Maintenance treatments thereafter can be determined in your customized plan.


MicroNeedling can greatly reduce or eliminate the following skin issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Thin, sagging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin texture

How it works

MicroNeedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is suitable for all skin types and colors. The results are similar to laser resurfacing and chemical peels, but with less cost, discomfort, and downtime.

MicroNeedling is a controlled micro-injury that triggers a wound healing response. These micro-wounds in the deeper layers of the skin fill with new collagen and elastin. In addition, new capillaries are formed leading to greater oxygen and nutrient absorption. Since healthy surface layers remain intact, microneedling has a faster healing time than other skin resurfacing treatments. You will continue to see improvements over three to six months, as your skin heals and new collagen and elastin are produced.

What to expect

First, we clean and apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to help reduce discomfort. Next, a micro-needling tool is gently applied to your skin, creating tiny, superficial micro-punctures.

MicroNeedling has minimal downtime compared to laser treatments and chemical peels. After a treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and may feel sunburned, but this typically subsides within 24-72 hours.

We recommend patients do not wear makeup for 24 hours. You should also avoid excessive sun exposure, and use additional sun protection following a treatment.

MicroNeedling Series

This three treatment series is everything described above.

We require that you keep up with a customized at-home care plan between treatments. The at-home routine ensures optimal results, and makes each treatment more effective.

MicroNeedling with PRF Series

MicroNeedling with PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) speeds up the healing process and boosts the effects of microneedling so you achieve results faster. Because the treatment uses your own plasma, adverse reactions are extremely rare.

Before your treatment, we will draw a small amount of your blood. This is processed to separate platelets from the blood cells – this is the PRF (platelet rich fibrin). Your PRF is topically applied and absorbed through the microneedling punctures, stimulating the natural healing process and creation of collagen. By injecting PRF into areas on the face or scalp, the controlled inflammatory response kick starts new cell growth, new hair growth, and collagen production.
