Micro-needling, also referred to as skin needling is a minimally invasive non-surgical treatment that utilizes a small device that houses incredibly fine needles. During a micro-needling treatment, the skin is punctured with these tiny needles to create a controlled “micro injury.” This effectively triggers your body’s natural healing response, prompting an increased production of collagen and elastin in the area. This improves firmness and texture of the skin, minimizes blemishes, and reduces the appearance of scars without removing the top layer of skin.

We will thoroughly sanitize the treatment area before beginning, minimizing the risk of infection and allowing us to have a clear view of your skin. During treatment, you may experience very slight discomfort, but most patients report that pain is minimal.
Immediately after your treatment, we will moisturize and hydrate the skin to promote healing and nourishment. You may feel like you have a slight sunburn, but this sensation should improve quickly, as will any redness—expect your skin to be slightly pink for approximately a day. Most patients return to work the following day, and makeup may be worn at this point.
