Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural healing response without causing unnecessary and excessive damage.

The treatment uses tiny needles that create invisible, microscopic wounds in the epidermis and on the top layer of the dermis at different depths. Essentially sending signals that your body has been injured, triggering the body’s natural self-repair process.

These tiny perforations heal within several hours and prompt new elastin and collagen synthesis to generate healthy new tissue.
