Microneedling is the timeless and rejuvenative treatment for all skin types and concerns that can achieve both short-term and long-term results when performed in series of 3 or 6!
Commonly known as “collagen-induction therapy”, this treatment performs for just that! With the decline in collagen production in our skin as we age, it is important to promote new skin cell growth. Healthy, rejuvenated skin can be produced through the technique of using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin forcing the skin to repair itself.
From navigating through your teens to aging in your 60’s, anyone can benefit from skin rejuvenation, but it is most prized for skin concerns such as:
When you come in for your treatment, your aesthetician will thoroughly double cleanse your skin, and then apply a topical numbing cream that will sit for 20 minutes. Once your numbing process has been completed your skin will be cleansed for a second time. Your treatment will then begin using the SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex as a glide for our FDA approved Microneedling tool, SkinPen.
Does Microneedling hurt during treatment?
During the treatment you will feel a mild buzz on the skin, but the buzzing sting is tolerable and the treatment time is relatively short!

What will my skin look like the day after my treatment?

How often should I get a Microneedling treatment?
Schedule your next Microneedling treatment for every 4-6 weeks, or as directed by your licensed aesthetician!
