Micro-needling is used for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone, and color. During this procedure, micro-injuries are created in the skin. During the skin’s repair process, there is production of collagen and elastin resulting in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Micro-needling can be performed on the face and neck.
The treatment takes about 45 minutes and it is recommended to have at least 3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart in order to reap the highest benefits since this parallels the skin’s natural turnover process.
