Local Mom Scoop was hosted for a microneedling treatment at 5th & Wellness in Boca Raton. All opinions are 100% my own.
Have you ever considered microneedling?
I’ve been wanting to try this procedure, but I was a bit nervous and worried about many things like what to expect, how does it work and what will my face look like when I’m finished.
When I met Jennifer Koutsodontis, Acupuncturist & Integrative Medicine Specialist and owner of 5th & Wellness, I knew my anxieties about microneedling would be gone.
5th and Wellness, a Boca Raton based medical wellness center offers state-of-the-art aesthetic and anti-aging services.
Jennifer takes a holistic approach along with integrative medicine to come up with the best plan for you.
With so many services, it’s hard to know where to start. But Jennifer puts you at ease with her knowledge and years of experience.
5th & Wellness focuses on five main categories of our services:
- Weight Loss
- IV Therapy
Jennifer recommended the Morpheus8 procedure which is microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This microneedling procedure has a more calming effect on the skin and allowed me to enjoy sushi lunch with my girlfriend after without feeling awkward.
When I did my Instastories, I was flooded with questions about this procedure like: how long does it take, will I be super red and so on.
Scroll through this post and hopefully as I share the scoop on what to expect during microneedling at 5th and Wellness Boca Raton.

What To Expect During Microneedling at 5th & Wellness Boca Raton
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that has become a very popular service because of its great treatment results.
How does microneedling work?
The device is shaped like a pen, but this pen has tiny needles at the tip of the pen. The tiny needles are used to create tiny holes into the skin.
During the procedure, the tiny holes are generating collagen production to that treated area.
Although the skin is being punctured with the needles during the procedure, the needles are going beneath the skin’s surface, which does not damage the skin at all.
What Does Microneedling Do For You?
If you didn’t know, it smooths out the treated area, increases collagen production, tightens the skin, and smooth out any fine lines or wrinkles. It also helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body via subdermal adipose remodeling.
This fractional treatment penetrates deep into the skin and fat for a smoother and sleeker appearance.
What Areas Can Treat?
Areas of the face and body that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.
The most commonly treated areas include the face and neck which is where I had the treatment.
Before the procedure, Jennifer applies a topical numbing cream for about 12 minutes. This will keep you comfortable throughout the whole procedure which lasts about 30 minutes to about an hour max, depending on the treatment area.
How Quickly Will I See Results?
Visible results can be seen within a few days, but typically after three weeks. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.
What is the price of the Morpheus8?
The Morpheus8 is around $950. You can watch the IGTV below of before and after.
