Very tiny needles lightly puncture the skin, creating what the body perceives as a mini “injury” that causes the skin to create collagen and elastin (the stuff that we really wish we had more of as we age!). This process stimulates new cell generation and leads to fresher, younger, dewy-looking skin. Results can be seen as soon as 2 weeks after.
Micro-needling can address sensitive areas that may difficult to treat by other methods, such as the delicate area around the eyes, brow, décolletage, neck, hands and more.
This minimally invasive treatment is used to improve scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretchmarks and melasma. Serums– like hyaluronic acid and vitamin C acid– are added to the treatment since the skin is primed to absorb their healing properties. Unlike some laser treatments, needling does not damage the outer layer of the skin and there’s little downtime.
- improves fine lines and wrinkles
- leaves skin looking younger and fresher
- removes acne scars and stretch marks
- improves skin texture and firmness
- heals skin around the eyes
recommended course of treatment:
Results are best achieved with regular treatments. A minimum of 4 a year, up to 1 every 6 weeks is suggested.
With a series of treatments, skin’s texture and firmness improves significantly, in addition to a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Hair loss, acne scarring and skin color changes can also be successfully treated with micro-needling treatments.
Note: Peels are not included or combined with micro-needling treatments because the skin is too sensitive due to the punctures from needling.
