MICRONEEDLING

About

Microneedling is an effective way to rejuvenate the skin, improving texture and firmness. The treatment works by creating tiny punctures in the top skin layer. The microneedles triggers your body to regenerate new collagen and elastin in order to heal.  Collagen keeps the skin looking youthful, firm and smooth.  As we age collagen production begins to decline in the skin contributing to wrinkles and aging.

Microdeeling is great for treating:

fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, reduce the appearance of large pores, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, sun damage, general texture irregularities and skin laxity.

Microneedling can be  also be done all over the body to treat arms, legs, neck, abdomen, back and hands. Treatment can customize based on your goals!
