Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing procedure used to treat skin impurities, stimulate collagen and brighten complexion. By using small needles to create numerous pricks to the skin, this allows topical solutions to penetrate deeper than just the skin’s surface for smoother and firmer skin.

Microneedling is mostly used on the face to achieve a more youthful complexionand can also be used to treat scars and stretch marks. The procedure is NOT safe for people who use certain acne medications or are pregnant. Microneedling requires no downtime but it is normal to experience minor redness and irritation for a few days following the procedure.
