Microneedling Metropolis Dermatology Los Angeles

About Our Microneedling Services

Microneedling is a way to stimulate the growth factors present in the blood to rise to the upper layers of the skin. Microneedles mounted to a motorized applicator poke thousands of microscopic holes in the skin and induce pinpoint bleeding. This, in turn, allows nutrients from capillaries to rise to the surface. The microneedles lead to micro-injury of the skin and induce healing growth factors that lead to collagen production in the medium and long term, resulting in healthier-looking, firmer skin. Collagen also squeezes pores and allows them to appear smaller. We use hyaluronic acid – copper micro-pigmentation clarifying serum to even out complexion.

Microneedling Effectiveness

We love microneedling for a variety of conditions, including acne scars, hyperpigmentation, pore rejuvenation, and overall blotchy or dull skin. It can help with fine lines and wrinkles, but injectables such as Botox and other technologies, such as RF (Radiofrequency) microneedling and various lasers (Spectra FX Laser, Fractional Erbium) can be more effective for this particular use.

The treatment is safe for all skin types and the risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring is extremely low compared to other treatments.

Microneedling Procedure

We utilize StrataPen, which is the most advanced and sterile pen on the market. The procedure itself is relatively painless. We apply topical numbing for 20 minutes prior to the procedure, and the procedure feels more like a vibration, and less like needle pokes. Recovery usually takes place within 3 days, and it’s best to avoid the sun and heavy creams on the skin during this time.

At Metropolis Dermatology, we incorporate microneedling, PRP, and a variety of technologies to treat conditions such as acne scars. We believe that combination therapy leads to the best outcome in the fewest number of sessions.


Microneedling treatments are customized to address the unique needs of each individual patient. The cost of the treatment varies depending on the area(s) treated and the number of treatment sessions required to achieve the change you desire. We will develop your personalized treatment plan and discuss the cost associated with it during your consultation.
