What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses extremely fine needles to pierce the skin. It breaks down old scar tissues and boost skin cell generation.
How Does it Work?
As the device moves over the skin, it penetrates the upper layers to create micro wounds. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which in turn boosts collagen and elastin production. The result is a fuller, more youthful appearance.

This is a common microneedling FAQ. Microneedling can improve many skin conditions including mild to moderate acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, enlarged pores, stretch marks and sagging skin.
Are there side effects?
Most patients have some redness and mild swelling for a day or two. There may also be minor pinpoint bleeding or bruising. Within a week, skin will be noticeable smoother and more radiant.
How do I care for my skin after microneedling?
Some patients may experience dryness, redness, swelling, or scaling. We recommend that patients take extra precautions to protect from sun damage after the procedure and use a gentle cleanser twice a day.
Additionally, you should not use AHAs, retinol, acidic or active ingredients for a few days after treatment to allow for maximum healing.
