All-natural skin renewal

Microneedling is less expensive than laser treatments, which can cost about four times as much. Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat the way laser treatments do, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation, or color. Ask a professional what’s best for your skin -- and your budget.

How it works

Learn more about both types of Microneedling

Traditional Microneedling

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. The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.

Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs.

F.A.Q.

Is it painful?
The treatment itself is pretty painless but most microneedling professionals will use a topical numbing cream to avoid discomfort that the client may experience.
How long does it take?
The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how big the area is. For larger areas total prep and procedure time could be up to two hours.
Is it safe?
Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime. It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health. The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant. You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.

Morpheus8 Radio Frequency Microneedling

Revitalize your skin!

Tighten skin, reduce scarring, and remove fine lines and wrinkles with Morpheus8 by InMode. This revolutionary technology combines micro-needling with radio frequency.

The microneedles penetrate the skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, returning a fresh, youthful look to your skin. The radio frequency heats the deeper layers of the skin to precise temperatures that cause the fibroseptal network to contract and pull your skin tight.

F.A.Q.

Is it painful?
No! we use a topical numbing agent so you won’t feel a thing.
How long does it take?
Depending on the area, Morpheus8 typically takes 30-60 minutes after 45 minutes of numbing.
When will I see results?
Results will start to appear as early as a week after your first treatment and continue to improve for months as your skin heals and new collagen is formed.
What's the downtime?
There is a little bit of redness and possibly some swelling, but nothing that will prohibit you from your daily activities. Some patients who receive the treatment on their face may want to take a weekend off.
How many treatments will I need?
We typically recommend a series of three treatments spaced one month apart, but most people notice results after one treatment. We will customize the number of treatments to you!
