What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that improves the overall quality of the skin by creating punctures, or micro-channels, in the upper layers of the skin. These punctures stimulate circulation and the production of elastin and collagen Micro-needling can be used to tighten loose or lax skin, improve the appearance of acne and scarring, reduce the appearance of large pores, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Micro-needling treatments are performed using an electronic device containing ultra-fine needles that create controlled punctures in the skin. These micro-channels trigger the body’s natural healing response, which thickens the dermis and softens wrinkles and reduces the appearance of scarring. This treatment can improve the effectiveness of your topical skin care products, or can be used in combination with chemical peels to further enhance the results of the treatments.
