Microneedling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that uses a small hand-held device with tiny needles that create microchannels or tiny holes in the skin’s surface. These microchannels immediately trigger the healing process, stimulating your body to produce collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Collagen production is crucial to our skin’s integrity. More collagen means a more youthful appearance.
Microneedling improves the texture and firmness of the skin, and it reduces large pores, stretch marks, and treats acne scarring.
