Microneedling benefits include helping stimulate your skin's healing process, so it produces more collagen and elastin.

Collagen induction therapy


Microneedling meticulously penetrates through skin layers. This stimulates the production of collagen, which corrects damage, smooths, tightens, and improves the skin’s appearance.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an excellent option for patients of all skin types. It works by creating micro injuries to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the inner layer of skin). As a result, it encourages the body’s innate ability to repair itself. To emphasize, this treatment stimulates new collagen growth. In addition, microneedling helps correct and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Further, it improves scars from acne or other injuries. What’s more, microneedling improves skin texture and reduces stretch marks.

Is microneedling right for me?

  • acne scars
  • large pores
  • brown spots
  • fine lines
  • deep wrinkles

What can I expect?


Microneedling encourages collagen production using our bodies’ wound healing response. This process works in four phases:

  • One: 1-3 days after the treatment the skin experiences inflammation. This stimulates the development of new collagen.
  • Two: 3-5 days after the treatment new growth factors multiply. This generates new collagen and tissue.
  • Three: 5-20 days after the treatment growth factors continue to release collagen.
  • Four: 28 days to 2 years after treatment the maturation stage of new, healthy skin takes place. Tissue continues to improve and the patient notices an improvement in skin tone and quality.

Frequently asked questions.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling creates microscopic openings and invisible puncture holes in the top layer of the skin. As a result, this causes the tissue to develop new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, firmer skin. The treatment is completely non-surgical and requires little downtime.

What conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling addresses wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, mild inelasticity, acne scars, large pores, rough skin, and dull skin.

What is the microneedling process?

The treatment starts with the use of a topical numbing agent. Numbing your skin ensures the treatment is as comfortable as possible. Next, the technician, using a microneedling device containing a circular arrangement of tiny needles, passes the device across the skin creating tiny openings in the epidermis. These minuscule punctures prompt a healing response in the skin without damaging tissue. After finishing,  your technician will apply a soothing gel. It cools your skin and prevents it from drying out post-treatment.

What areas can be treated with microneedling?

Microneedling can treat the face, neck, décolleté, abdomen, arms, hands, and legs.
