MINIMALLY-INVASIVE TREATMENT TO IMPROVE SKIN AGING AND SCARRING
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a handheld device containing very fine needles that inflict micro-punctures to the skin. These controlled injuries trigger the skin’s natural repair processes, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This procedure is most commonly used to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and skin texture.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates micro-punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilized needles.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), the skin’s healing process after Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of scars and dark spots as well as improve skin elasticity.
You may be an ideal candidate for this procedure if you’re in good health and have certain skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments or other types of dermatologic procedures, such as chemical peels.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling has gained popularity for its growing list of benefits. It is said to rejuvenate and plump the skin with minimal discomfort and very little downtime, and it can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs.
Benefits of Microneedling can include:
• reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars
• reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• reducing enlarged pores.
• reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, or dark spots
• smoothing uneven skin tone
• improving skin elasticity

People with darker skin tones may prefer Microneedling to laser therapy.
