What Can Microneedling Accomplish?

Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling harnesses the power of your skin’s natural repair system to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, pore size, mild scars and more. Using a SkinPen®, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device, the procedure creates microscopic pinpoint wounds in targeted areas of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve your skin’s overall condition.

Microneedling is suitable for all skin types. Typically, applying topical numbing to the skin pre-procedure makes the treatment comfortable. This safe procedure has little to no downtime, but clients should expect to experience some post-procedure redness and may feel like they have a mild sunburn for 24 to 48 hours. Typically, we recommend a series of three treatments spaced 30 days apart to receive optimal results.
