Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetics procedure that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, which results in in minor trauma to the treated area resulting in the encouragement of collagen and elastin production rebuilding the deeper layers of skin. Microneedling is commonly applied on the face to help treat a wide range of skin conditions.

How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling provides trauma to the skin in order to allow for the accelerated production of collagen. As we age our natural production of collagen declines, which leads to one of the main reasons for skin again. The production of collagen is necessary to help keep skin looking youthful.
We use the Dermalogica Pro Pen, which allows serums to penetrate and rejuvenate skin cells. Since the occurrence of trauma to the skin is minor, recovery only takes a matter of weeks for the skin to properly heal with visible results.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
The primary benefits are skin rejuvenation and the restore of our skin’s healthy glow. Microneedling stimulates our body’s production of increased collagen and elastin, resulting generation of new and healthy skin cells. Results are fairly quick. Many will see signs of improvement over the course of a few weeks. Results typically will last months due to continued production of cells.
It is also a minimal invasive procedure due to its use of tiny needles along with a low risk of complications. There are no incisions or general anesthesia necessary during this procedure.
How do I get started?
