Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and surgical scars. It can also help to increase product penetration to aid in the treatment of melasma. It works by using tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin. This process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
Micro-needling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
This treatment is perfect for reduction of large pores, uneven skin tone, reduced elasticity, sun spots, melasma, scars, and stretch marks.
Total prep and procedure time is about 90 minutes depending on how many treatment areas are needed.
You may need at least four procedures or more for the best results.
Although micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure, there are a few possible side-effects such as bleeding, bruising, infection, and/or peeling.
