Microneedling is a medical-grade skin rejuvenation procedure using a motorized pen that creates tiny, invisible puncture sites to stimulate collagen and elastin production. As your skin responds to the stimulation, a series of treatments may improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin texture in general. Products with growth factors or your own PRP (platelet-rich plasma) can be added on to stimulate more collagen with time for better results.
Microneedling is recommended for those who can commit to a series of treatments to improve concerns such as skin tone and texture, certain scars, and/or fine lines. Safe for most skin types, Microneedling may also be an alternative option for certain Fitzpatrick skin types that may otherwise not be candidates for laser or IPL treatments. Microneedling is not recommended for those with unavoidable regular, heavy sun exposure, those with a tendency to keloid, or pregnant/nursing women. Your eligibility for treatment will be determined during your complimentary consultation with one of our physicians.
