How it works
How it works

Microneedling is a therapy that creates “micro-injuries” to the skin, inducing the healing process including new collagen and elastin production. It is a non-invasive treatment that is safe for all skin types. It creates microchannels using medical grade needles to a precise depth (which varies by skin type and treatment area) to create a controlled injury to stimulate your skin to repair. When the microchannels are open, treatment boosters may be use to penetrate and improve the skin even more. Treatments are performed in a safe and precise manner with the sterile devices and are normally completed within 30-60 minutes, depending on the selected area.

What is involved with a microneedling treatment?

Before the procedure, the skin is anesthetized with an ointment to provide the client with maximum comfort. In preparation for the microneedling, the treatment area is disinfected. Topical or injectable boosters may be added for additional benefits. Options can be reviewed with your provider.

After the procedure, the skin may appear swollen and possibly flushed. In most cases, everything disappears in the next few days. Aftercare is recommended for optimal healing and results.

The skin condition will improve over time as a result of regenerative processes.

How does microneedling help with resurfacing?
How does microneedling help with resurfacing?

Microneedling causes a natural response to produce new collagen-rich tissue. Generation of new, collagen-rich tissue tightens skin, reduces scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and fine lines in the skin. This thus improves the overall texture and appearance of your skin.
