What Is Microneedling?

This technique involves the use of fine needles that create tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen. Leveraging your skin’s innate healing processes, this method effectively diminishes the appearance of fine lines, scars, and wrinkles. Microneedling is a straightforward, minimally invasive option, offering the flexibility to undergo the treatment as frequently or infrequently as desired. It is an ideal choice for those aiming to soften fine lines or address acne scars.

What Skin Conditions Does Microneedling Improve?

  • Fine Lines
  • Scars
  • Rough Skin


Why is microneedling done with Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Studies have shown that PRP can expedite the healing process of tissues and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring when used with microneedling. PRP contains proteins and several growth factors that regulate and activate cell migration and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

How does it work?

A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments depends on the severity of your skin condition. Many people see noticeable improvements after 1-4 treatments.

Does it hurt?

If you have sensitive skin, you can apply a numbing cream to minimize pain during the treatment.

How often can I repeat the procedure?

You can perform a new treatment safely every 4-6 weeks.

What can I expect following the procedure?

You will experience some redness, mild swelling, and peeling for 2-4 days. Avoid sun exposure after your treatment.

Where can I wear make up again?

We recommend waiting 24 hours before applying makeup.
