Well, when you schedule a consultation with us we’ll sit down with you and discuss your skin goals. From there we will recommend the best treatment for you. However, one of the most popular treatments that we always recommend is Microneedling.
Microneedling has become extremely popular over the last few years. The name itself can be a little alarming, which is why many of our clients wonder, what exactly does microneedling do? Luckily, it’s actually a lot less intense than it sounds! A microneedling treatment is a procedure where we use tiny needles to puncture the surface layer of your skin. These needles, however, are not placed right onto your skin. We use a roller that rolls right over your skin and causes little to no discomfort. So how does this procedure help your skin?

Even though the treatment does not hurt, you’re probably wondering why someone would want to roll needles across their face. Well, people love this treatment because it comes with amazing results! It is known to even out your skin tone as well as reduce the appearance of aging skin. Let us get into a little more detail for you.
Visible signs of aging include fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning skin. Aging happens as you get older because your skin’s natural collagen production slows down. Collagen is what provides strength and elasticity to our skin, so without collagen, our skin begins to lose that protein causing wrinkles and fine lines to form. Microneedling helps stimulate natural collagen production so that we can continue to have smooth and youthful skin. Microneedling also helps your skin absorb products better. So if you apply any anti-aging product after microneedling, the skin will more easily absorb it causing it to work better.
Similar to how microneedling helps wrinkles, it can also help reduce the appearance of scars on your skin. Some scars caused by acne tend to sink into your skin and microneedling will penetrate these areas to break down the scar tissue. Over time with a few microneedling treatments, the appearance of the scar will fade

Microneedling can help improve the overall tone and texture of your skin while also reducing the appearance of your pores.
