MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger.

 

Microneedling may help with issues like:

  •  Acne

  •  Hair loss 

  • Dark spots or patches on your skin (hyperpigmentation)

  • Large pores

  • Reduced skin elasticity

  • Scars

  •  Stretch marks

  •  Sun damage

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how big the area is. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.

 

First, you’ll get a numbing cream smoothed onto your face so you can’t feel the needle pricks. Then the person doing the microneedling will move a pen-shaped device with tiny needles around your face. The needles make small cuts in your skin, which causes a bit of bleeding. 

The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles. Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs.
