How Microneedling Works

Before a microneedling treatment, one of our expert providers will apply a numbing cream to your skin. Then, they’ll glide a special device with hair-thin needles across your skin. The device will form a controlled wound to your skin’s upper layers. These micro-injuries from the microneedling procedure will stimulate your body’s natural healing process and regenerate collagen and elastin, the two proteins responsible for your skin’s youthful appearance. 

Just like most treatments, microneedling requires a series of sessions to generate optimal results. In most cases, we suggest a session every 4 to 6 weeks until you’re satisfied with your result. The treatments will allow your body to produce new collagen and elastin, leaving your skin looking and feeling its very best. 

After a microneedling treatment, you can resume work and your daily activities right away. This is great news if you lead a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to undergo a lengthy recovery period.

Good Candidates for Microneedling

One of the most noteworthy benefits of microneedling is its versatility. With this treatment, you can improve a variety of skin imperfection. These include fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, large pores, acne scars, stretch marks, and dullness. We recommend that you’re in reasonably good health and not pregnant or breastfeeding. During a consultation, we can inform you if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.

Benefits of Microneedling 

There are a number of noteworthy benefits of microneedling. First and foremost, it boosts collagen production. If you have scars from acne and other conditions, you’ll find that it also diminishes their appearance. In addition, microneedling may clarify your skin so that it glows and looks radiant. Last but not least, it can allow your skincare products to penetrate more deeply.
