Dr. Karen Soika
You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you’re in good health and have certain skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments or other types of dermatologic procedures, such as chemical peels. This may also be a final step before considering cosmetic surgery for anti-aging and other concerns.
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
During the procedure, Dr. Karen Soika makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. Doctor will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too. Before getting started, doctor will use a topical anesthetic to reduce the chances of pain. This is done about an hour before your treatment. The actual microneedling process takes approximately 30 minutes.
Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:
In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body. Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure. However, microneedling is primarily used on the face.

Dr. Soika is a highly competent and compassionate cosmetic surgeon. She did an eye lift for me and I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with the results. She is masterful at her work and takes extra care to ensure proper follow up and recovery is accomplished.
I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
My sons wedding was coming and I wanted to look and feel my best, I called Dr. Soika because I saw her local Ad. It was the best call I made! My skin looks 7 years younger-tighter, and I look for rested and awake. I didn’t believe it was possible without surgery, but Dr. Soika did an incredible procedure in 1 1/2 hours with no down time.A.
