Skin changes are a normal part of the aging process, made more intense by factors like tanning and smoking. If you’re bothered by the condition of your skin, microneedling can help you regain lost vibrancy. During the minimally-invasive treatment, we make tiny pin pricks in your facial skin. These micro-injuries stimulate your skin’s natural healing processes, leading to a more youthful look.

As skin ages, it loses collagen, a protein that allows for a smooth, pleasantly plump complexion. Microneedling triggers your skin to begin producing more collagen, so your skin will have more tautness and bounce back more easily. This can be helpful if you’ve noticed shallows or sagging in the mirror.
Everyone’s skin has been exposed to UV rays without sufficient protection at some point. Over time, this exposure can lead to brown spots, also known as “sun spots” or “age spots.” Microneedling can help even out your skin tone by minimizing these issues, as well as tone changes caused by acne scars.
Like water hydrating a dry, cracked desert, microneedling prompts your skin to start filling in the gaps created by wrinkles and fine lines. While it won’t erase wrinkles completely, you’ll end up with smoother skin. You appear as though you’ve been sleeping far better or better managing stress, versus as though you’ve “had work done.”
Because microneedling relies on your skin’s natural defense and healing mechanisms, you don’t have to worry about potential side effects of chemical-based treatments or surgery. Unlike a surgical facelift, it doesn’t require extensive downtime for healing. Your skin may look a bit red following treatment, but those effects will diminish on their own while you go straight back to your usual activities.
Each person’s skin is unique, so there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Dr. Adams uses the AquaGold microneedling system, which she tailors to your specific needs and desires. Using 20 tiny, gold needles and a refined treatment process, AquaGold delivers essential compounds below your skin’s surface, including:
