What Is Microneedling?
Looks are not everything, but they play a significant part in our self-esteem. Some adults still have dark scars from hormonal acne during their teenage years. And if you were lucky enough to dodge those pesky pimples, you are likely more concerned about wrinkles from aging. Unlike pimples, dynamic wrinkles are unavoidable. They affect everyone at some point in life. But this does not mean we have to let them eat away at our confidence! Microneedling is an effective and safe way to renew the skin and banish facial imperfections.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment that addresses enlarged pores, smooths the skin, and stimulates collagen production. Since it is non-surgical, patients do not have to deal with an excruciating recovery. Read on to find out how microneedling works, its benefits, and the best place to get it done.

- Promotes cell turnover
- Reveals healthy, radiant skin
- Boosts the efficacy of skincare products
- Fades acne scars and facial imperfections
- No downtime
- Younger and tighter skin
- Restores skin volume
- Diminishes fine lines, creases, and wrinkles
- Safe for all skin colors and types
How Microneedling Works
A microneedling device consists of tiny needles that create open channels in the skin. It creates just enough micro-injuries to signal the body to produce more elastin and collagen. Increased elastin and collagen make the skin look younger, plumper, and more vibrant.
While your skin heals, you can reap greater benefits from your skincare products. The open microchannels absorb serums, creams, and oils more effectively during this time. Our patients enjoy microneedling because they see fast improvement. Some get great results from just one microneedling treatment! But we recommend multiple sessions to get long-lasting results.
Microneedling Treatment Applications
Microneedling can help you restore your youth and tackle unsightly imperfections on the face. It works well on most skin types and colors. If you have not had luck with laser resurfacing, you may try microneedling instead. It addresses many skin conditions:
