Microneedling in Geneva (face and body)

HomeNon-surgicalMicroneedling in Geneva (face and body)

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a trendy anti-aging treatment that can be applied to the face, neck, arms and legs. Cette nouvelle technique thérapeutique consiste à faire rouler une baguette ou un stylo fixé avec des mini-aiguilles stériles pour créer de micro ponctures contrôlées dans la couche supérieure de votre peau. Wounds help stimulate the epidermis' healing process, encouraging it to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in a refreshed appearance and an almost immediate plumping effect.

Microneedling on the face

Part of aesthetic medicine, microneedling on the face is an extremely popular skin procedure worldwide to target skin rejuvenation.

From reducing acne scars to improving skin texture, facial microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can rejuvenate your skin, instantly smoothing it and giving your complexion a more radiant glow. What's more, it offers long-lasting anti-aging benefits by stimulating natural collagen production to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

You might consider facial microneedling in Geneva at Dr. Elias, if you are concerned about:

  • Dilated pores
  • Wrinkles or fine lines
  • Brown spots
  • Loose or frizzy skin (fine, wrinkled skin)
  • Excess sebum
  • Light scars, especially those caused by acne or burns.
  • Skin discoloration or uneven tone

How does Microneedling work?

Microneedling is applied to the face, neck, legs and hands when the skin is damaged (scars, stretch marks, etc.) or ageing.

In fact, the skin repair process helps reduce the appearance of brown spots, wrinkles, sagging and textural irregularities such as acne blemishes or stretch marks. Recent studies have proven that Microneedling is effective in targeting the melanocytes responsible for melanin overproduction, meaning you can achieve brighter, more even skin.

The procedure has attracted further attention for its hair growth stimulating benefits.

What to expect after a Microneedling facial?

Il est normal de ressentir des douleurs légères après une procédure de microneedling.

Your skin may be red or even bright red when you leave the surgery, but the redness will disappear after 48 hours.

Most of the visible scarring after microneedling takes place within the first two days after treatment, and healing will continue below the skin's surface for up to two months. By taking good care of your skin, side effects can be reduced.


Microneedling results depend on the reason for treatment, the extent of scarring or wrinkle depth and the number of sessions performed. To maximize and maintain the results obtained with microneedling, we recommend 3 to 4 sessions, depending on the imperfections to be corrected (once a month for three months).

The expected number of treatments required to achieve the desired results will be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Elias. This consultation also offers you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the microneedling facial technique practiced in our Geneva practice.

Whether you're looking to firm and lift your skin, reduce wrinkles and scars, regenerate tissue or have some other aesthetic goal, Dr. Elias can develop the perfect skin rejuvenation plan to suit your unique needs and decide on the most appropriate technique to achieve your goals.
