Microneedling is a medical device used for the purpose of breaking down old scar tissue and stimulating collagen and elastin production. Microneedling can treat a variety of skin conditions, including: acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks, fine lines & wrinkles, pore size and skin texture and sun damage. Microneedling improves the overall quality of skin.
This device glides gently along the surface of the skin and creates numerous, tiny holes which allows the skin to repair itself. Microneedling encourages the body to create new collagen and elastin. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, pores and fine lines. Microneedling can be used for all skin types and colors, without risk of discoloration (known as hyperpigmentation). It can also be used on all areas of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs) and combined with platelet-rich plasma, known as a ’vampire’ facial.

Detailed instructions will be given to you by your service provider.
We recommend microneedling every 4-6 weeks. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage prior to starting the treatment.
