Micro needling, also known as skin needling, is a non-surgical, non-laser treatment that encourages new collagen and elastin production.  Micro needling stimulates the self-repairing property of the skin and is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.

The needles used create invisible, vertical micro perforations into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis.  As a result, the skin starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations by immediately increasing the formation of new tissue, as well as releasing growth factors that promote repair and healing.

In addition to activating cell regeneration, it also provides a clear channel for topical gels and serums into the skin during and after the treatment.  

A topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment, so there is little to no pain involved during and after treatment.   The total healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of repair process required.  On average, clients have some slight pinkness (like mild sunburn) for two to four days.  Some clients heal completely in 24hours.  Result can be noticed in as little as four to six weeks.  For optimal results, most clients require two to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.

Reasons for choosing Micro needling – improve acne, chicken pox and surgical scars. Smooth wrinkles and plump up fine lines. Improve the appearance of sun/age spots.  Improve skin texture and tighten and firm skin.
