What is MicroNeedling?

Updated: Mar 2, 2023

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure with the use of thin needles. These thin needles create tiny holes to the top layer of the skin (epidermis). The creation of tiny holes to the skin help stimulate the skins healing process. This signifies that collagen and elastin is produced. Collagen and Elastin are proteins that help your skin be firm and smooth.

Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve your goals.
