What is Microneedling?

Using an electric handheld device, 9 very-fine needles that create thousands of micro-channels
within the skin stimulate what's called a "wound healing response." This in turn creates the stimulation
of collagen, alleviating the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, even stretch marks!!
It is a medical device used to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate.
This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers
as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro-Needling?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring; any new or old scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Loose, lax skin;
  • Skin texture and pore size
  • Stretch marks

What does Microneedling feel like?

The Microneedling treatment gives a light tingling, or "prickly" sensation, and may provide a temporary reddening for up to 24-48 hours post treatment. It may also create a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Even pinpoint bleeding that can occur with a deeper treatment, usually only leaves redness and mild inflammation for 2-4 days max! Working hand in hand with an esthetician that knows YOUR skin's needs and wants, you can feel rest assured that a treatment of this magnitude is done with care and expertise.

How many treatments are recommended?

Optimal result is achieved with a series of treatments. An individualized at home regimen is always given and recommended for your personal needs. We'll follow-up with you a few days after, as well, to be sure you're on the track to success.
