Vein Conditions




Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure designed to help your skin feel and look younger. Treatment involves tiny needles that are inserted into the superficial to deeper layers of the skin. It is typically performed on the face, but can also be done on the neck, chest, and hands. Microneedling can be an incredibly versatile treatment option for a variety of concerns. Some of the conditions microneedling is used for include:

  • Superficial fine lines and wrinkles
  • Deeper wrinkles
  • Skin resurfacing and smoothing
  • Acne scarring such as pitting, and pock marks
  • Scars from surgery or trauma
  • Stimulate hair growth for alopecia

How does Microneedling work?

When microneedling is performed it creates tiny micro punctures into the skin. This controlled and specifically placed treatment into the skin prompts your body to “fill in” those holes with new skin and collagen. The resulting inflammation and new collagen help to give your skin a more plump and refined appearance.

Each time a microneedling session is started we use a new, sterile tip for our microneedling device. This helps ensure your treatment is clean and minimizes the risk of contamination. In addition, our office microneedling treatments penetrate the skin deeper than at-home devices. Our microneedling devices “stamp” the skin producing a clean straight hole instead of producing micro-tears in the skin like many rolling pins do.

Pair Microneedling with other treatments to get better results

Microneedling is a great team player and pairs well with many different treatments. These additional treatments are often used to enhance the effects of microneedling or treat additional concerns at the same time. Some of the combined treatments are listed below.

Microneedling + Radio Frequency

Oftentimes microneedling is combined with radio-frequency energy to help produce a stronger treatment for those deeper wrinkles. InMode’s Fractora uses this combined power of microneedling with built-in radio frequency to provide dermal and subdermal treatment to even the deepest wrinkles. Fractora is also a great choice for those with acne scarring.

Microneedling + Chemical Peels

Adding a chemical peel after a microneedling session allows the chemical peel to go deeper and produce a stronger treatment. Chemical peels are used for many different concerns such as wrinkles, pigmentation, and acne. By combining these two treatments you can address more than a single concern during a treatment session.

Microneedling + Topical Products

Adding clinical grade topical products to the skin immediately following a microneedling session allows those products, like retinol, Vitamin C, peptides, and growth factors to go deeper in the skin than they would with a normal application.
