SKIN REJUVENATION WITH MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis. This procedure uses a handheld pen-like device to create small channels in the skin. The healing result from these micro injuries dramatically increase collagen production improving fine lines, discolorations and pore size. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin.

Microneedling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner. A topical numbing cream is used prior to treatment and discomfort is minimal.  The procedure is normally completed within 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Patients love that they can get these results with a quick treatment that requires little to no downtime.
