What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment for skin issues and conditions. It is a proven therapy for both cosmetic and medical treatment that stimulate the body to begin the natural healing process with use of microneedles. 
Anyone dealing with minor skin conditions including acne scarring, can see immediate results with our microneedling treatments. This incredible therapy tightens the skin, smooths out the skin tone, and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Top Microneedling Benefits for Rejuvenated Skin

While microneedling is highly publicized as a treatment for acne scars, this therapy is also widely used for a number of other skin conditions. Notable benefits of microneedling include, but are not limited to, reduced age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and enlarged pores, as well as improved elasticity and skin tone. Microneedling is also a proven treatment to diminish the look of stretch marks on the belly, arms, and legs. 

How Microneedling Works: The Science Behind the Treatment

The microneedle system uses medical-grade surgical microneedles to penetrate the skin with a high frequency. The precise depth of the puncture is determined by the skin specialist in accordance with the specific treatment. The microneedles produce micro injuries to the skin surface to stimulate the natural healing process of the skin cells. As the body begins to immediately heal these tiny wounds, collagen and elastin production is boosted, plumping the skin cells and diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin surface. The skin surface appears smoother as the new skin cells tighten.

What Areas Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling can be used on most targeted areas of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, abdomen, back, and legs.
