Microneedling

 
 
 

About:

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure involving fine needles that are drawn across the skin to create a controlled injury to the skin.  These fine needles minimally puncture the skin to help create new channels that encourage the body's own processes to produce more collagen and elastin.  The procedure can be customized to every patient's needs using differing depths to treat problem areas more aggressively.

 Microneedling has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture and firmness of skin, decrease pore size, minimize the appearance of discolorations and acne scars, and has even been shown to reduce stretch marks.

The microneedling procedure is typically done with a vitamin rich serum and Hyaluronic Acid, but can be combined with a PRP (platelet rich plasma) service to vastly increase the benefits of the treatment.

Number of treatments:

3-4 treatments are recommended to see optimal results.  Deeper scars and discolorations may require additional treatments.

1 hr. (Appointment time involves in-office numbing of the area treated
