How does it work?
Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. (Acne Scars are more easily improved when treated earlier. Read this article When Should I Treat My Acne Scars? )
We use SkinPen™ for optimal results and a comfortable procedure. More intense skin problems? Learn about Intensif, micro needling with radio frequency.
There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
