Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that has been around for many years. It has gained popularity recently due to its many benefits and its ability to treat a plethora of skin concerns. The treatment itself involves tiny, shallow needles that puncture small holes in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body’s natural healing processes as a result, boosting the production of collagen and elastin. As this occurs, micro needling leaves skin rejuvenated, softer with a smoother and more even skin tone.
Micro-needling is able to address a wide variety of skin problems, including acne scarring, pore size, wrinkles, fine lines and overall skin tone and texture issues’
Our microneedling treatment penetrates only the most superficial layer of the skin. As a result, the healing process is quick. Following the treatment, most patients are able to resume their day-to-day and professional activities within a few days. Although patients will experience varying degrees of redness and swelling immediately following the procedure, typically the skin heals significantly within 24 to 48 hours.
