Come to a trusted source of knowledge and expertise to see if microneedling fits into your aesthetic journey.

We offer two main microneedling options for improving fine lines, smoothing out acne scars and rejuvenating treated areas: Lutronic’s Genius RF microneedling device and the EVO Micropen. No matter what your concerns are, we can develop a personalized treatment plan to help you unlock the full beauty of your skin with microneedling.

Genius RF

There are tons of microneedling options out there and the hype in this category is simply overwhelming, but when it comes to facts and science, Dr. Burns has done your homework for you. He has explored and utilized many different devices, but has chosen Genius, which he believes is the best radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology currently available.

When it comes to RF microneedling, nothing beats Lutronic’s Genius. This device combines short-pulse RF energy with the benefits of precise, controlled microinjuries that trigger the body’s natural healing process. In response, new collagen and elastin fibers are produced to gradually remodel the skin and enhance tone, volume and firmness. With the addition of thermal RF energy, these results go deeper and produce more noticeable improvements in collagen and elastin growth, even tightening the skin in treated areas.

Please note: RF microneedling is different from other microneedling treatments. It is a more aggressive option that offers enhanced tightening and more volumization of the skin. It is a wonderful and popular treatment, but is a step up from standard microneedling that requires more downtime, so you will need a consultation to see if it's right for you.


The EVO MICROPEN is an automated microneedling tool that creates tiny holes in the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve tone, texture and pore size. Compared to other devices, the EVO MICROPEN is a step up, with a faster motor and new design that glides more smoothly across the skin with less drag for enhanced comfort. This treatment can be paired with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the best results and works well in conjunction with HydraFacial and other aesthetic solutions for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.


Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that uses a small handheld device to puncture the surface of the skin with fine needles, causing dozens of controlled microinjuries. These microinjuries are so small they’re not visible to the naked eye, but they create microchannels into the deeper layers of skin that improve the absorption of topical products and stimulate the body’s natural healing response to improve the production of collagen and elastin fibers, leading to improved skin texture and appearance.


Microneedling leads to the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers in treated areas for a firmer, healthier and younger-looking complexion. It can be used to address a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sagging skin
  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dullness

Microneedling is most often performed on the face and neck, but it can also be on other areas of the body where these concerns occur, such as the chest, arms, legs and abdomen.


Collagen is a protein that is an essential component of the body’s connective tissues, including the skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. In fact, it is the most abundant protein in the human body, making up approximately one-third of our total protein content.

Collagen is responsible for providing strength and structure to these tissues. In the skin, collagen helps to maintain its firmness, elasticity and overall appearance. However, as we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to the development of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Collagen production decreases over time for many reasons, including:

  • Natural aging process: As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen. This decline in collagen production begins in our 20s and accelerates in our 30s and 40s.
  • UV exposure: Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can damage collagen fibers in the skin, leading to a decrease in collagen production. This contributes to premature aging and the development of lines and wrinkles.
  • Lifestyle factors: Smoking, a poor diet and high levels of stress can also contribute to a decrease in collagen production.
  • Environmental factors: Exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins can produce free radicals that damage collagen fibers, causing them to thin and wear out.
  • Genetic factors: Genetics also play a role in how quickly we lose collagen with age.

Regardless of the cause, decreased collagen production can lead to a number of changes in the skin, including the tell-tale signs of aging. It’s important to take steps to support collagen production to maintain your skin’s health and vibrance, such as eating a healthy and balanced diet, protecting against sun damage and using high-quality products with collagen-building ingredients like vitamin C, retinol and peptides.

Microneedling can be included as part of your normal skin care routine to promote collagen production and give your skin a rejuvenating boost. It can address a range of common concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, sun damage, acne scars, large pores and more to improve the overall tone, texture and appearance of your complexion.


The benefits of microneedling include:

  • Stimulating collagen and elastin production: Microneedling can help boost collagen and elastin production, which improves your skin’s texture, firmness and elasticity.
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and mouth.
  • Improving skin texture and tone: Microneedling can help improve your skin’s texture and tone by reducing the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation and other imperfections or blemishes.
  • Enhancing skin’s absorption of skin care products: The microchannels created during microneedling can help enhance the absorption of skin care products, improving their overall effectiveness.
  • Minimizing pores: Microneedling can help reduce the size of enlarged pores, which can improve the overall appearance of the skin.
  • Treating scars and stretch marks: Microneedling can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and scarring by stimulating collagen production in the affected area.
  • Safe and minimally invasive: Microneedling is a safe and minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed on most skin types and tones.


In addition to stimulating collagen and elastin production, microneedling creates microchannels in the skin to improve the absorption of topical gels, creams and serums. This helps skin care products to work more effectively for even greater benefits. To further encourage tissue renewal, microneedling is often combined with topical treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which infuses the skin with growth factors derived from a small sample of the patient’s own blood. It also works great alongside HydraFacial, allowing the nourishing serums and peptides to penetrate even deeper into the skin for optimal results.

You have questions? We have answers.


Microneedling is considered safe and effective for most people who want to improve the overall appearance and health of their skin. However, it may not be suitable for patients with certain medical conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis. It is also not recommended for individuals who have an infection or issues with wound healing. If you’re interested in microneedling, Dr. Burns and his team can evaluate your concerns, needs and goals to determine if this treatment option is right for you during your initial consultation.


Microneedling can cause some discomfort, but it generally isn’t regarded as painful. Most patients find it to be tolerable and report a scratching or prickling sensation during treatment. Bony areas of the face — such as the jawline or forehead — are likely to feel a little more uncomfortable because they have less fat and muscle beneath the skin.

To ensure your comfort, the skin can be numbed with a topical anesthetic before treatment. Afterward, treated areas may feel tender and sensitive to the touch. Redness, swelling, and mild bruising are also common side effects, but they typically subside within a few days.


The microchannels created by microneedling treatments improve the delivery of active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin, where they can be more effective. The microchannels created by microneedling are typically very small, ranging from 0.25 to 2 millimeters in diameter, depending on the size of the needles used.

In addition to improving the absorption of topical skin care products, these microchannels also stimulate the body’s natural healing response by creating controlled microinjuries in treated areas. The microinjuries caused by the needles trigger the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, leading to improved skin texture and appearance over time.


The microchannels created during microneedling typically remain open for a few hours after the procedure. During this time, skincare products can be more easily absorbed into the skin, which can enhance their overall effectiveness. The microchannels will close on their own without the need for further aftercare, but we recommend that patients avoid using makeup for the first 24 hours after treatment to “let the skin breathe” and use gentle cleansers, moisturizers and other skin care products recommended by Dr. Burns to reduce irritation.


The number of microneedling sessions you’ll need to achieve optimal results depends on factors such as your skin’s condition, the concerns being treated and your unique goals. Whether your procedure is combined with other skin care treatments can also play a role — patients who include microneedling as part of a comprehensive skin care plan that includes HydraFacials, laser resurfacing and other rejuvenating treatments may see more dramatic changes in their skin’s overall health and appearance.

In general, most people require three to six microneedling treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to see noticeable improvements. However, you may need to undergo fewer or more sessions depending on your desired outcome. Once you’ve reached your goals, ongoing maintenance treatments can be performed to maintain your results.


Microneedling creates satisfying and long-lasting results by stimulating the body’s natural healing response and improving collagen production. You can expect to enjoy the improvement in your skin’s tone and texture for several weeks or months, but the duration may vary depending on your age, lifestyle and other factors. You can prolong your results by taking good care of your skin, protecting it from sun damage and receiving regular touch-ups. After your appointment, Dr. Burns can share some tips and tricks for getting the most out of your microneedling treatment, including his optimal skin care regimen.
