What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling treatment is a safe, effective way of rejuvenating your skin without cosmetic surgery. It boosts collagen and elastin production, making you look younger while also improving blemishes.

Collagen and elastin are proteins in your soft tissues. They support and strengthen the skin and muscles, keeping them taut and elastic. With age, collagen and elastin production declines, causing thinning skin and reduced elasticity. Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases form, hollows develop, and your skin starts to sag.

Micro-needling addresses the problems caused by a loss of elastin and collagen. You’ll have younger-looking skin with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

What problems does micro-needling treat?

Micro-needling effectively stops early signs of aging and prevents new wrinkles and fine lines from forming. Dr. Simhaee recommends combining micro-needling with regular corrective antioxidant serum use to brighten your skin and promote a youthful glow.

Other problems micro-needling can treat include:

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are particularly difficult to treat and very few aesthetic treatments improve their appearance. Micro-needling is one of the few that improves stretch marks.


Micro-needling is proven to improve surgery, acne, wound, and growth spurt scars. It breaks down old scar tissue and triggers new elastin and collagen production for healthier skin.

Micro-needling is also effective for excessive redness or rosacea and brown spots caused by sun exposure.

Can I combine micro-needling with other treatments?

Micro-needling is ideally suited to combined treatments. Dr. Simhaee offers the following combined treatments:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP master Dr. Charles Runel trained Dr. Simhaee to provide expert micro-needling with PRP and/or peptides. PRP contains plasma (the liquid part of the blood) which contains growth factors and platelets where they trigger tissue repair. It restores collagen and elastin levels and encourages new hair growth in people with hair loss.


Y LIFT is a technique where Dr. Simhaee raises the skin and muscles using a titanium tool and injects dermal fillers underneath. The result is a naturally contoured face.


Agnes RF uses radiofrequency energy to contour your face, chin, neck, and other targeted areas. It creates more youthful-looking skin by increasing collagen and elastin production for long-lasting results.


Morpheus8 also combines radiofrequency energy with micro-needling. It targets subcutaneous fatty deposits and cellulite, boosting collagen levels and remodeling fibers without harming the skin.
