Granite Bay Microneedling
High-tech resurfacing that’s safe for any skin type.
Laser resurfacing and peels are great, but they’re not for everyone. Patients with darker skin, those who don’t have time to lay low while treated skin heals and peels, and those who have blemishes (i.e., acne scars or large pores) that don’t always respond as well to these treatments deserve great skin too, and need another option to address their concerns.
One skin resurfacing treatment that’s safe for nearly everyone: microneedling! It uses dozens of thinner-than-a-hair needles to trigger new skin cell regeneration, helping to improve a myriad of skin concerns without lasers, chemicals, or harsh abrasives.
How microneedling can restore a smoother, healthier complexion
It seems counterintuitive that making a bunch of tiny holes in the skin’s surface would result in smoother skin with fewer blemishes, but it works. Creating a series of intentional “micro-injuries” in the skin prompts skin cell regeneration and collagen production without harming your skin. In the weeks following your first microneedling session, you’ll notice improvements in skin tone and texture as well as some reduction in imperfections. These improvements get more pronounced with each subsequent treatment.
Microneedling can be an excellent option to treat:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Acne or surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Large pores
- Sun damage & hyperpigmentation
- Mild skin laxity
The needles are microscopically thin, so you won’t notice the “micro-injuries” created during treatment, save for mild, temporary post-procedure redness. No downtime is needed if you don’t mind looking a little sunburned for 4 or 5 days—just be sure to keep your skin protected with SPF or clothing when you go out.

Infini Microneedling + RF Energy
At GBC, we’ve taken microneedling one step further with the Infini by Lutronic. This high-tech device combines microneedling with precise delivery of radiofrequency (RF) energy. How does RF help? The energy heats the deeper skin layers, further boosting collagen production for maximum skin tightening effects.
Additionally, the Infini tip can be adjusted to reach an optimal depth for your unique skin type and concerns, allowing us to treat a variety of concerns with one treatment.
Microneedling + PRP for faster, more dramatic results
We can take microneedling even further with platelet rich plasma (PRP). Platelets are components of blood that are packed with proteins and other nutrients called “growth factors,” which play a key role in collagen production, tissue repair, and cell turnover.
For PRP therapy, we take a small sample of blood from your arm and process it to separate out the platelets and plasma, creating a “platelet-rich plasma” with a super high concentration of growth factors. This PRP is then applied to the skin during a microneedling treatment to amplify natural skin regeneration and speed onset of results.
Microneedling provides the perfect environment for PRP to absorb into the skin for maximum effectiveness. Including PRP in your microneedling session adds only 15 to 30 minutes to overall treatment time, and can make a noticeable difference in how quickly you see results.
Is Infini microneedling a good option for me?
You’ll need a personal consultation with our expert skin care professionals to determine if microneedling is right for you, but we’ll tell you this: microneedling with RF is one of the most agreeable skin resurfacing treatments and can be used safely on all skin types, even darker or tanned skin.
Most patients need two to three treatments to significantly improve issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks or skin laxity, but most patients find the downtime-free, low risk treatments well worth the investment.
