What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure used to help improve the appearance of one’s skin, especially when it comes to various conditions including wrinkles, rosacea, and acne scars. It works by creating tiny punctures in the skin with a tool called a Micro-Pen. The body responds by producing new skin cells, collagen and elastin. The microneedling procedure simultaneously infuses high quality serums, such as Hyaluronic, Vitamin C and Peptide serums into the micro channels, to enhance collagen production in the area being treated. The result is healthier and more vibrant looking skin.

This treatment is known for its ability to improve the look of acne scars, wrinkles and lines, hyperpigmentation, textural issues and even stretch marks. By creating tiny channels in the skin and encouraging new collagen production, patients can look forward to smoother skin. In addition, microneedling enhances the effect of serums used in the procedure.

Are There Any Side Effects?

The treatment is performed by our trained, Licensed Acupuncturist, with minimal side effects such as redness or tenderness around the treated area. There is no bleeding involved. These reactions usually only last a few hours before subsiding, and patients are given complete instructions for after care.

Patients are treated with a numbing cream before the procedure to ensure minimal discomfort. Most people report feeling a mild prickling sensation during the treatment.

How long do results take to show?

This depends on the individual and their skin condition, but most people will start to notice improvements after 1 treatment. As skin cells take 28 days to regrow, it’s recommended to have treatments 1 month apart, over 4 – 6 months.
