What Skin Imperfections Does Microneedling Correct?

As we get older, it's natural for life to take its toll on our bodies, especially our skin. Fortunately, microneedling can help combat the signs of aging so you can look and feel your best.

Dr. Shahriar Khezri and our highly trained team at Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa in Edmonds, Washington, can meet all your anti-aging and aesthetic needs using the most advanced technologies and innovative treatment methods. 

If you're seeking to improve your skin's appearance with microneedling, we offer patient-centric care that includes developing a personalized treatment plan just for you.


Microneedling was first written about in a medical journal in 1995, but it’s become more of a mainstream treatment within the last 3-5 years. It uses gentle radiofrequency energy to go deep within the skin to treat a variety of issues.

Skin imperfections microneedling can help

Between exposure to the sun, unhealthy habits like smoking, and certain health conditions, your skin might look anything but perfect. Microneedling can address many of these issues. 

Wrinkles and fine lines can be reduced, as can stretch marks. Microneedling can also address prominent pores and acne scars, and it can help treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

How it works

Microneedling revitalizes the skin from the inside out. 

With the Infini™ treatment system by Lutronic®, we use tiny needles to make microscopic skin pricks in the topmost layers of your skin. These slight injuries encourage the production of new collagen- and elastin-rich tissue as your body naturally repairs itself.

This can help make your skin both firmer and smoother in texture and tone. The procedure is typically done on the face, but we can also use microneedling on other areas of your body.

The process

If you’re interested in smoother, fuller, more youthful looking skin, we begin with a consultation. Our experts listen to your concerns and goals and then we develop an individualized treatment plan. 

In some cases, microneedling may be done with radiofrequency or combined with another procedure such as microdermabrasion.

On the day of your appointment, we apply a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. Next we perform the microneedling procedure, which typically takes a half-hour or less. This is often followed up by the application of a serum or calming treatment.

The procedure is minimally invasive so most people can continue with their daily activities after it’s done. For best results, you might need more than one treatment.

If you're tired of skin that's showing its age, call our office or request your appointment online today to find out more about microneedling.
