Microneedling has become a standard offering for skin rejuvenation due to its ability to boost collagen production and noticeably improve the skin's texture, tone, and elasticity. Advances in technology have exponentially improved the effectiveness of microneedling to deliver even better results. Treatments with the SkinPen microneedling device can be enhanced with the addition of PRP or exosome therapy, making microneedling an outstanding option for comprehensive skin remodeling in Los Angeles.
We know there are many options for Microneedling in Los Angeles. At West Empire Aesthetics, we offer premier service and stunning outcomes under the guidance of Dr. Mort Rivzi. Dr. Rizvi is highly respected in the area as a versatile plastic surgeon who is committed to excellence. This mindset carries over into every procedure we perform.
Beautiful, Natural Results
Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, Microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique. By stimulating collagen production through micro-wounds in the skin, microneedling reduces wrinkles and fine lines as well as acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This skin rejuvenation method involves extracting tissue-stimulating plasma from a patient's own blood. This plasma can then be applied as a serum after microneedling to further enhance the skin's collagen-building and self-repairing process.
Exosomes are components in our bodies' cells that communicate with other cells to prompt healing and regeneration where needed. Synthetic exosomes can be used along with Microneedling to encourage the skin's healing and restoration process.
Look as young as you feel!
Microneedling is an incredibly versatile and reliable method for skin rejuvenation. With the addition of innovative therapies like PRP and exosomes, microneedling can be even more effective. With Microneedling Los Angeles patients can expect a number of benefits that include:
Women and men aged 21 or older seeking skin rejuvenation to fade signs of aging, scarring, or pigmentation issues—or to achieve general skin remodeling—are likely great candidates for this procedure.

Consultation and Preparation
This procedure is performed at West Empire by providers Hannah Rihani, PA-C, or Eliza Arakelian, BSN, RN. Your aesthetic provider will spend time with you during a consultation to learn about your aesthetic goals, treatment preferences, and health history. Once a microneedling treatment plan is laid out, you will be provided with details regarding how to prepare for your appointment.
Turn Back the Clock
At the beginning of your procedure, topical numbing cream is typically applied for added comfort. Then, the SkinPen device is directed over the skin in the treatment area. The SkinPen's settings are adjustable, meaning your provider can use the setting or settings that are best for your skin type and concerns. Microneedling treatments typically take about 15 to 30 minutes.
If you wish to add PRP or exosome therapy to your treatment, this solution will be applied to your skin immediately after your Microneedling treatment to encourage maximum absorption via the newly created microchannels. PRP microneedling therapy requires the initial step of taking a small blood draw from you to create your personal growth-factor serum.
Recall Your Smoothest Skin
Some mild swelling or redness might occur after treatment, but there is no downtime necessary. Collagen rejuvenation is gradual, so most patients see results over the course of a few months, and optimal results last for six to nine months.
At West Empire Aesthetics, Dr. Mort Rizvi and the entire staff are dedicated to helping you reach your aesthetic goals and improve your overall quality of life. With decades of combined experience in the medical aesthetics field, our team understands the importance of quality patient care and a comfortable atmosphere.
Microneedling is not typically considered painful but may be uncomfortable due to the sandpaper-like sensation of the tiny needles. For maximum comfort, a topical numbing cream can be used.
Minor side effects with Microneedling could include mild swelling, redness, or bruising.
Yes, microneedling with SkinPen is safe for all skin types and tones.
To allow for optimal healing, we usually recommend waiting at least 24 to 48 hours before resuming your skin routine or applying makeup.
