What is microneedling?
Micro-needling treatment promotes induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin. The body’s response to these small traumas is repair with new collagen and elastin. The sterile micro-needles create mini injuries, which is enough to prompt the deeper layer of skin to rebuild, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. As the skin repairs itself with renewed collagen, the result is smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
How long is the microneedling Procedure?
The procedure is done in the office and takes approximately 30 – 60 minutes.
Where is microneedling performed?
The most common site for micro-needling is the face, but it can also be used on hands, arms, neck, abdomen, back and legs. The treatment is fully customizable based on each patient’s needs and area desired to treat.
What is microneedling used to treat?
Micro-needling can be used to treat wrinkles, scarring, acne, alopecia, pigment, stretch marks, rosacea and loose skin. In all treatments the body’s natural healing response is stimulated creating rejuvenated skin.
