Young woman with perfect skin


From scarring to aging skin, it can be hard to know where to start finding treatment for your skin concerns. 

Microneedling can tackle multiple skin concerns through one treatment, revealing your best skin yet.

At Tarrant Plastic Surgery, we offer microneedling as one of our non-surgical services at our Fort Worth, Keller, and Southlake TX, offices.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses tiny needles to make controlled punctures in the skin. While your skin heals from these small wounds, production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, which helps improve the look of concerns like wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, large pores, and stretch marks. This procedure helps prompt the body's natural healing response into action, leading to smoother and firmer skin for both the face and body. 

Benefits of Microneedling

Long-Lasting Results

Collagen production continues for weeks after the procedure, leading to gradual and lasting improvements in skin texture and appearance.

Better Product Absorption 

The microchannels created by the needles allow for better absorption of topical skincare products. Get the most out of your skincare with microneedling. 

Minimal Downtime

While there might be some mild redness and sensitivity immediately after the procedure, the downtime associated with microneedling is minimal compared to surgical treatments.

Customizable to You

The depth of needle penetration can be adjusted to target specific skin concerns and different areas of the face or body, making the procedure highly versatile for your needs. 

What Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling is a versatile procedure that can improve the look of skin on both the face and body. Increased collagen and elastin production is the body's natural healing source for the following concerns:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Uneven Skintone
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Stretch Marks
  • Sagging Skin
  • Scarring on the Body

Can Microneedling Improve Your Skin? Request a Consultation

Microneedling is a great non-surgical option for patients seeking to address a variety of skin concerns, both on the face and on the body. No two complexions are alike, so we encourage patients to come into our Fort Worth, Keller, or Southlake, TX, plastic surgery offices for a free consultation to see if microneedling is right for your needs.

"Very thankful I came here." 5-Star Reviews From Caring Patients

Very thankful I came here and had the opportunity to receive a breast augmentation by Dr. Rumalla. I’m very happy with my results and they look very natural with minimal scaring only 6 weeks post op. And being a person of color, the scarring was a very big concern for me. And staff was ready to answer any questions I had.

Take a Look at the Morpheus8
Microneedling System

We use the cutting-edge Morpheus8 microneedling system, which differs from traditional microneedling by integrating radiofrequency (RF) energy. While standard microneedling solely uses needles to create controlled skin injuries, Morpheus8 combines microneedles with RF technology to enhance collagen and overall cosmetic results . Take a closer look at how the Morpheus8 system adds an extra layer of skin improvement that traditional microneedling alone can't offer.

Come into our Fort Worth office or one of our other locations for a free consultation. Our staff takes the time to examine your skin concerns and skin type to determine if microneedling is a safe and optimal procedure for you. 

Pre-Appointment Care

At your consultation, our team will discuss the best pre-appointment practices for you to follow. We recommend you don't take pain medication, like ibuprofen, as these can increase the likelihood of bruising. We also recommend that you arrive with clear skin free of any products, such as moisturizer or makeup. 

Numbing the Skin

To ensure a virtually painless procedure, we'll apply a topical numbing cream to your face prior to beginning the treatment. 


Once your skin is properly numbed, we'll begin using the Morpheus8 microneedling tool to create small punctures in your skin. Discomfort should be minimal, thanks to numbing. Minor bleeding may occur, but should not be cause for alarm. 


We may apply serums or solutions rich in vitamins, peptides, or growth factors after your microneedling session. The microchannels created by the needles can enhance the absorption of these products.

Pair Microneedling
With Injectables

Microneedling is a great non-surgical procedure to revitalize your skin. However, it can only do so much. To tackle wrinkles, fine lines, and aging skin further, we recommend you pair your microneedling treatment with injectables like BOTOX® and dermal fillers, both offered at our practice. 

Microneedling FAQs

How many microneedling sessions are recommended?

We generally recommend two sessions per area on the body and three sessions for the face to see desired results, though your unique needs may differ. A resting period of one month should occur in between sessions. 

Is microneedling the same as at-home dermarolling?

Microneedling and dermarollers both use fine needles to stimulate collagen and improve skin texture. However, professional microneedling offers controlled precision, and offers better results than at-home dermarolling. Additionally, sterile conditions are crucial to prevent infection and ensure safe healing. At-home dermarolling carries a higher risk of infection than professional microneedling treatments at our medical clinic.

Are there side effects with microneedling?

Common, mild side effects of microneedling include temporary redness, swelling, sensitivity, and dryness. These should start to subside within a few days. Minor bruising can also occur. Infection is rare, and this risk is minimized with proper aftercare and professional treatment. Contact us if you notice any signs of infection, peeling, or other severe side effects.
