printMicroneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. Microneedling works by using tiny pinpricks to encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue creating a softer, smoother looking skin.

As we age skin loses collagen, microneedling encourages the skin to make new tissue and can be used for a variety of skin imperfections such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Sun or age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Scars
  • Reduced skin elasticity (sagging skin)
  • Uneven skin tone caused by sun damage

There is minimal downtime with microneedling and the results, which include smoother, firmer skin, begin to appear within a few days.
