Microneedling, utilizing the FDA-approved SkinPen, is a great collagen-inducing treatment either on its own or in combination with other Luminary procedures & products.
The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
Microneedling can give you the clear, youthful, and balanced skin complexion you are looking for.
If aging, texture deficiencies, wrinkles, or uneven skin tone has left your skin looking less than its best, our microneedling treatments can help reverse many of the adverse effects and help you face the world with greater confidence.
How is Microneedling Performed?
When we perform microneedling, we use a small handheld instrument that features a series of small needles. The SkinPen is the most advanced microneedling tool, containing 24 stainless steel needle tips, that superficially punctate your skin to induce healing from the bottom up and from the outside in. When the skin is punctured in this fashion, the body starts to produce more collagen and elastin naturally. This increase in collagen and elastin production can help restore skin elasticity and correct discoloration and other skin imperfections.
Benefits of Microneedling
• A better alternative to surgery
• Results look and feel natural
• The appearance of scars can be reduced
• Softens fine lines and wrinkles
• Improves firmness and texture of your skin
• Prevents signs of aging
A single Microneedling session can be completed in as little as 20 or 30 minutes.
Most people need three to six microneedling treatment sessions to experience the results that they want. Treatments are usually spaced two to four weeks apart from one another. We’ll recommend the exact number of sessions that we believe will be right for you when you come see us.
The appearance of acne scars can often be minimized with Microneedling. The treatment also works well in reducing enlarged pores.
Microneedling can make topical products that are applied to the skin more effective by allowing for deeper infiltration. This will allow the products to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers so that they can improve skin quality even more.
Most people return to their daily routines right after a treatment session without any problems.
Don’t put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 24 hours following microneedling. You’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin.

What an amazing place. They offer such an array of ways to enhance your own beauty. The facial that I received from Gina, left my skin looking young, vibrant and super moisturizer!The staff is always so warm and welcoming. The offices are always spotless. I always look forward to going and would definitely recommend to a friend
I had the pleasure of having Brette provide a BBL and Moxi treatment at Luminary in Lindwood. She was very good at explaining everything during the consultation. She made me feel very relaxed and made sure I was aware of everything she was doing during each procedure. I would highly recommend Brette and Luminary Cosmetic
I love Luminary so much!! The staff is so knowledgeable and so friendly. Dr. Saltzburg gave me a full evaluation and treatment plan options that were customized to my specific needs and desires. I started with Dermaplaning and then a Moxi/BBL HERO treatment. The recovery was easy and the results were amazing!! Years of impurities and old dead skin were removed from my face, making way for new, glowing growth. Next I’d love to try a lip filler, but I’ve been really nervous about it. Dr. Saltzburg has taken lots of time to discuss my reservations and to understand exactly what type of results I am looking for. She has really set my mind at ease and I’m excited to give it a try! I absolutely recommend Luminary for all of your aesthetic needs. You will not be disappointed.
I had Halo/BBL performed by Gina and it was a great experience! She talked me through every step of the process, answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly, and she was a pleasure to talk to during the process! Everything was handled professionally and personably and I am loving my new smooth glowing skin! Looking forward to future treatments by Gina!
Gina gave me an amazing facial – skin so smooth and soft. Feeling refreshed! She analyzed my skin and spoke with me about options for skincare and rejuvenation. Very impressed. The space is beautiful- clean and professional. I will be back for facials to brighten and care for my skin.
