Minimally invasive rejuvenation of the complexion with stunning results

When the skin suffers from sun damage, the signs of aging, acne scars and debris, it can affect the entire appearance, creating a negative impression that is difficult to reverse.

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, revitalizes the pores, helping the skin to shed its superficial imperfections for a more youthful, vibrant aesthetic.

Where is the procedure performed?

Microneedling is performed at our state-of-the-art outpatient facility that is fully accredited and outfitted with the most advanced technology and equipment. You will receive personalized attention at our safe, discreet and convenient San Diego location from caring, knowledgeable professionals.

Advantages of microneedling:

  • Helps roll back the clock on aging skin
  • Reduces acne scarring
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Safe for all skin types
  • No side effects
  • Easily combined with other procedures
  • No discomfort
  • Minimal downtime
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive

Microneedling with Botox

The infusion and application of our La Jolla Botox cosmetic treatment during Microneedling into the superficial layers of the skin are intended to relax the pores and create a temporary youthful and smooth appearance.


  • Smaller Pores
  • Bright, luminous skin
  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Lasting results between 3-4 months
  • Minimal to no downtime

Microneedling with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma takes microneedling to the next level of effectiveness and results. A small amount of your own blood (about 12 milliliters) is drawn and then quickly run through a centrifuge that separates out the platelet-rich plasma for use. This PRP is applied topically and massaged into the skin after microneedling has been done, which allows for the greatest possible absorption of PRP’s growth factors and other beneficial proteins.


  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Healthier and more radiant skin
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and lines
  • Increased production of collagen and elastin
  • Minimal downtime, with most patients returning to work the day after treatment

Microneedling with Filler

Dermal filler with hyaluronic acid can naturally plump and smooth the skin as well as physically adding lost volume. When used with Microneedling treatments, it can help kick-start the collagen production process in the area and encourages skin to heal faster and more efficiently. This results in a much smoother result than when using Microneedling on its own.


  • Reduction of deep wrinkles
  • Reduction and smoothing of acne scarring
  • Lasting results between 4-6 months
  • Minimal to no downtime

Microneedling with Botox & Filler

Benefits of all of the above combined.

What does the recovery from microneedling entail?

Rates of healing will vary from client to client for all cosmetic procedures. That being said, most patients do experience some minor redness and swelling similar to a sunburn for a few days post-procedure. In general, these symptoms pass within the same amount of time.
