The process consists very of merely making tiny perforations in the skin. We can achieve different results depending on how the microneedling is done, what depth in the skin, and what other procedure it is bundled with.

The simplest and most straightforward is what I call "home rolling," where you purchase a quality microneedling roller to use at home regularly. Repeated use can help improve the skin's appearance and texture, especially if combined with medical-grade skincare.

We often combine deeper (medical) microneedling with particular products or peels to obtain even better, more immediate results in our clinic. With these deeper procedures, we can improve things like acne scars.

The strongest and best microneedling is when it is combined with radiofrequency (a device called Genius). We have the best treatment available for acne scars, skin rejuvenation, and skin tightening with this procedure.

If you think you might be a candidate, call today to schedule a consultation and see how we can help.
