Microneedling is a minimally invasive medical aesthetic treatment where tiny, sterile needles superficially pierce the epidermis creating thousands of micro-channels. This results in a breakdown of old, hardened tissue and kicks your body’s natural healing response into overdrive. Microneedling causes an accelerated production of fibroblasts, growth factors, collagen and elastin — in other words, a whole lotta goodness!
Derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy techniques, microneedling is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for many skin conditions and concerns. It offers an array of benefits including restoring the skin’s resiliency, reducing pore size, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating acne and acne scars, tightening and rejuvenating the tone of skin, fading stretch marks, getting rid of sun damage and hyperpigmentation and reducing vascular redness, such as telangiectasia/couperose and rosacea.
