Medical Microneedling

Acne scarring, melasma, fine lines, dull skin, are all issues that microneedling can target. Microneedling is a treatment that involves using a tool with 11 super-tiny needles in the very tip, which can which penetrates the stratum cornea, or the superficial layer of skin. You can think of microneedling as a collagen induction therapy. This treatment creates micro-punctures from the needles in your skin. Your body treats these pictures as a small wound and sends cells called “fibroblasts” to create more collagen in the affected area. Microneedling tricks your skin into thinking it has been wounded, but as a result, we're thickening the skin and improving the texture with this procedure. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks.
