Innovative and effective, this procedure activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin problems such as acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, dull skin, poor texture, stretch marks and body scars. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical serums, and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
How Does It Work?
The treatment begins by first cleansing the face, then applying a topical numbing cream. Once that takes effect (typically about 10 to 20 minutes), our staff will apply a serum that promotes skin repair and healing. A microneedling pen is then passed back and forth all over your face — at this point, the needles are moving up and down — in order to “needle in” the serum. Once the procedure is completed, another layer of serum is applied to seal everything in.
