What is microneedling?

Is your skin looking dull and tired?  Microneedling is a quick and simple skin treatment that can brighten your skin, and get it looking radiant again.   But what is microneedling and how does it benefit your skin.  

What is microneedling?

Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy, is a skin rejuvenation treatment in which a microneedling pen with fine, short needles, is used to create controlled wounds in the skin.  The microscopic channels stimulate the skin’s natural repair process, leading to plumper, smoother skin.

How microneedling works

The microneedling pen is moved across the skin and precisely penetrates the upper layers.  The skin responds to the microinjuries by producing new collagen, which makes the skin firmer and smoother. 

Microneedling is virtually painless and there is no downtime after treatment.

Benefits of microneedling

One of the main benefits of microneedling is its ability to trigger the formation of new collagen.  Collagen is a key component of youthful-looking skin, so building collagen stores can keep the skin looking younger for longer.   Microneedling is therefore an effective anti-aging treatment.

Microneedling addresses a variety of skin concerns.  It reduces wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores and more.  It also boosts the tone and texture of the skin. 

The tiny channels created during microneedling make it easier for skin care products and serums to penetrate the deep skin layers.  As a result, microneedling is often combined with PRP therapy for even better skin rejuvenation.  PRP therapy is an advanced treatment that uses enriched blood platelets to regenerate skin cells, and stimulate collagen.
