Microneedling is a painless and simple way to treat scars, tighten skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pore size, and improve scars caused from acne. Microneedling is a very versatile treatment with no down time, and results can be seen in as little as one week!
How microneedling works is a very natural form of skin renewal. It activates cell regeneration so your skin rebuilds collagen and elastin to repair the micro-perforations caused by the treatment. These invisible perforations in the skin cause the body to naturally repair itself, leaving younger, newer, healthier skin.
