Micro-needling

Micro-needling dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pore size while rejuvenating and tightening the skin. The healing process begin immediately andβ€―stimulates collagen and elastin cells for longer lasting results.

Micro-needling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars. It is important to realize that micro-needling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
