Microneedling New Albany, IN

If you’re looking for a simple way to enhance your current skincare routine or improve common skin perfections like hyperpigmentation, lines, and wrinkles, we want to introduce you to a treatment that can change your skin for the better. At The Ark Medspa, we offer microneedling treatment plans to force your body to grow new collagen and restore youth to your complexion.


Microneedling is a treatment also known as collagen induction therapy. It provides a simple yet powerful way to dramatically improve the appearance of your skin while simultaneously targeting some visible skin imperfections through a minimally invasive treatment process. The treatment itself involves the use of a device that will pass back and forth over the skin’s surface.

This device is packed with tiny needles that robotically stamp the skin to create microchannels. The body views these microchannels as micro-injuries and responds with an immune reaction, a healing reaction, and increased collagen and elastin production in the weeks following treatment. The treatment is designed to force the body to naturally heal the skin to address each patient’s unique concerns.

What Can It Treat?

Collagen induction therapy treatments can improve the appearance of many different skin imperfections, including lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and textural irregularities. It also can improve skin tone, elasticity, and overall skin health. We can customize treatments with our needling device to target your specific skin concerns so that your body responds, those imperfections begin to fade, and you achieve a more uniform and younger-looking complexion.

Our Treatments

We perform our microneedling treatments with CytoPen, an advanced needling device with disposable cartridges designed for one-time use to promote a sterile and safe treatment process. The CytoPen provides the esthetician with the ability to customize the treatment with adjustable needles and speeds.

Enhancing Your Treatment

We aim to deliver the best possible results, which is why we add our proprietary hyaluronic acid serum to the treatment process. One of the benefits of microneedling treatments is that it creates microchannels in the skin’s surface, which are also known as micro-injuries, that force the body to heal the skin with new collagen and elastin growth. It also increases the skin’s absorption rate. These microchannels are, in fact, channels that extend into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s absorption rate dramatically increases temporarily during and after the treatment. We can promote the best treatment results by applying a powerful anti-aging serum to force those ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin to create visible changes.

Our Proprietary HA Serum

Our HA serum optimizes the treatment process and can help patients experience immediate results, including visible improvement in the signs of aging and a healthy-looking complexion. HA (hyaluronic acid) is an extremely moisturizing ingredient and your body produces it naturally, but over time, the body also decreases natural hyaluronic acid production with the natural aging process. During this treatment process, we can use our proprietary HA serum to replace lost moisture in the skin and promote youthful-looking results.

The Stemfacial

The STEMFACIAL is a unique treatment we can perform with CytoPen to help patients achieve healthier-looking skin. The STEMFACIAL is a microneedling treatment that can improve the skin on the face, neck, arms, and body. It’s designed to promote skin elasticity and overall skin health. Specifically, the STEMFACIAL can:

  • Target skin tone and textural irregularities
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of different types of hyperpigmentation
  • Treat skin laxity
  • Reduce skin inflammation
  • Improve the appearance of large pores, stretch, marks, and acne scars
  • Promote skin health
  • Brighten the skin

The STEMFACIAL is a microneedling treatment that begins with applying a topical numbing cream. This topical numbing solution will ensure that you don’t feel discomfort during treatment as the needles create microchannels in your skin. Post application, you may feel light pressure and a warming sensation, but you won’t have to worry about any pain.

The esthetician will use the device to stamp your skin, making several passes back and forth across the surface until your entire treatment area has been covered with thousands of microchannels. During the treatment, powerful anti-aging serums will be applied to the skin, forcing them into the deeper layers and promoting the best results.

You will see some initial improvements in the appearance of your skin after your first treatment. Still, the best results will appear in the weeks following your initial treatment as the body responds by growing new collagen and elastin and increasing cellular turnover. Most patients notice dramatic results within the first four to six weeks of the treatment.

Depending on your skin concerns, you may need a series of treatments with four weeks between each to achieve the best results. During an initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin to determine the best treatment plan and how many sessions it will take for you to address your concerns.

Typically, patients will schedule at least three sessions with four weeks between each, but if you have more advanced concerns, like deep wrinkles or acne scars, you may need more treatments.

There’s no downtime following a microneedling treatment. Your skin may be red for the first 24 hours, and you may experience some peeling, which is a sign of cellular regeneration. We will provide you with instructions about which product to use, and you’ll also be asked to avoid excess sun exposure to protect your skin.

If you are looking for a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. These treatments are completely natural and rely on your body to deliver results.

At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin and determine your treatment eligibility. It’s important that you do not have active acne or a skin infection in the treatment area at the time of your appointment. Needling overactive acne or infection can spread bacteria.

Our microneedling treatment plans will significantly improve your complexion and allow you to finally reach different skin care goals without requiring that you plan around downtime or endure discomfort.
