Micro-Needling

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling uses tiny sterile needles to safely and precisely create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, triggering new collagen production. It is used to improve the skin’s tone and texture, reduce pigmentation and improve scars and stretch marks. The procedure is performed by an aesthetician and takes about 15-30 minutes.

What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?

The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.  Micro-needling also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.  The treatment can be performed on all parts of the body: Face, Neck, Décolleté, Arms, Hands, Legs, Abdomen and Back.

How many Treatments are Needed?

Generally, a series of 3 to 5 treatments are performed to achieve optimal results; however, each treatment will induce some collagen remodeling and micro-needling can be used for ongoing maintenance.
