Microneedling uses micro needles that penetrate the skin up to 2mm deep. These needles create micro punctures throughout the skin being treated to help with collagen stimulation and improvement of skin texture. Microneedling can be paired with corrective serums or PRP to help boost skin improvement. One session of microneedling has proven to produce the amount of collagen lost in one year.

Before and after care?
Before scheduling a microneedling procedure, you must understand that that if you have active acne you cannot be treated with microneedling as this can spread bacteria when there is acne present. Avoiding retinols for a week before and after treatment is recommended to prevent skin irritation.
After your microneedling treatment, it is common to see redness of your skin for up to a week. The best way to describe how your skin appears is like a “light sunburn”. Avoiding skin direct sun exposure, exfoliation, waxing, and the use of retinol for a week after treatment is recommended to help prevent skin irritation.
