MicroNeedling is a process of creating tiny micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate the skin’s own natural healing process. A minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure, it involves a device containing fine needles that glide smoothly across the skin’s surface.
MicroNeedling works well for patients with acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. It can also reduce the appearance of traumatic scars, pore size, discoloration, stretch marks and more!
How It Works
First, a topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. The pin’s powerful motor then quickly penetrates the skin, which patients experience as a vibrating tickle. This stimulates the skin’s own natural healing process, while simultaneously delivering Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – the building blocks for healthy new skin. The controlled injury stimulates the growth of collagen and improves the superficial layers under the skin. Amazing results with zero downtime!
Generally, 3 to 6 treatment sessions are recommended, performed at 4 week intervals. The whole procedure takes about 30-60 minutes depending on the areas treated.
