Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural capacity to regenerate. It is a procedure that can reduce the signs of aging skin, improve the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars, and enhance overall skin quality. A minimally invasive treatment, microneedling successfully improves tone, and texture, and restores a natural glow.
Rejuvenate your skin with microneedling.
As we age, it is only natural to want to repair any damage to your skin caused by sun exposure, skin trauma, or gravity. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical treatment that promotes natural collagen production. The process only takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Tiny needles are inserted into the epidermis and dermis, stimulating natural healing and regeneration. This process promotes the renewal of collagen and elastin, to build firmer, more youthful skin.

Will I need time off?
Every person we treat is unique, and your treatment may vary slightly, but the good news is that you can return to your routine immediately after your microneedling treatment. Although the procedure is not painful, each person’s healing process differs. You may experience slight swelling and some redness, similar to a mild sunburn. This should only last for 24 to 48 hours. Many of our patients schedule a microneedling session over a lunch hour.
You will see the positive effects on your skin.
Microneedling has several benefits to skin health. The most noticeable benefit includes the overall improvement of your skin’s tone and texture. Soon after your microneedling procedure, you will notice a smoothing effect on wrinkles and fine lines.
The increase of collagen production can start in as little as 48 hours, but to enjoy the full effect, you will need some patience. As the production of collagen is generated within your skin, noticeable results appear at about week four. For optimal results, three to six treatments, scheduled every four to six weeks, is recommended.
