For 10ms accuracy you can use Timer.
For  1 ms accuracy you need to use API GetSystemTime.

Sample code for both methods:
Option Explicit

Private Type SYSTEMTIME
        wYear As Integer
        wMonth As Integer
        wDayOfWeek As Integer
        wDay As Integer
        wHour As Integer
        wMinute As Integer
        wSecond As Integer
        wMilliseconds As Integer
End Type

Private Declare Sub GetSystemTime Lib "kernel32" (lpSystemTime As SYSTEMTIME)

Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim typTime As SYSTEMTIME
   
   GetSystemTime typTime
   Debug.Print Format$(DateAdd("h", -1, Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.") & Format$(typTime.wMilliseconds, "000"), " 1 Millisecond accuracy"
   Debug.Print Format$(DateAdd("h", -1, Now), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.") & Right$(Format$(Timer, "#0.000"), 3), "10 Millisecond accuracy"
End Sub
