Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, derma rolling, or skin needling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. Microneedling is a derma roller procedure that generates new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

As soon as the needles penetrate the deepest layers of your skin, “micro-wounds” are created. This stimulates your body’s healing processes to restore the small facial wounds immediately. There is almost no downtime with this procedure, and the most dramatic results will not be visible until four to six weeks after treatment.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that prompts collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, it is also used in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery, and can address sunspots.

This newly regenerated skin tissue is more even in tone and texture. It is a normal process for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. The increased collagen that may accompany the healing helps make the skin firmer.

Targeted Areas for Microneedling

Microneedling is most often used on your face to target acne scars, age spots or sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body. It may be effective for stretch marks on the thighs and abdominal area when combined with fillers. Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Stacy A.

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
