Microneedling is an effective treatment option for those who suffer from dull, dry, flaky skin. When used correctly, microneedling helps stimulate collagen production and encourages new cell growth. By stimulating the body’s own healing process, microneedling allows the skin to heal itself naturally.

What is MicroNeedling?
MicroNeedling is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to treat many different conditions, including acne scars, stretch marks, aging, sun damage, pigmentation, rosacea, and cellulite. MicroNeedling involves using a device that creates micro-wounds in the dermis, which triggers the body’s natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin.
This technology uses tiny needles to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. The process stimulates collagen formation, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is an effective method of stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin within the dermis layer of the skin. Small gauge needles are used to puncture the skin creating tiny holes that heal quickly leaving behind new skin texture and color. Microneedling treatments can be done without any downtime and are suitable for anyone regardless of skin type.
