How It Works
Microneedling is a revolutionary hand-held device which has the ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to promote healthier skin cells. Microneedling uses several extremely fine medical-grade needles that enter the skin at varying depths to painlessly create microchannels in your skin. This treatment then triggers the body's natural healing process to create new, healthier tissue to replace the imperfections of older skin. By renewing your skin cells regularly, you will be able to treat common problems we experience as we age such as wrinkles, skin hyperpigmentation, scars, uneven skin, stretch marks, hair loss, or it can simply be used to create smoother skin.
What can Microneedling treat?
It can be used by both women and men and has numerous beneficial effects including:
- Anti Aging
- Anti Wrinkle
- Cellulite Treatment / Cellulite Reduction or Removal
- Hair Loss Treatment / Hair Restoration
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
- Scar Removal - including acne scar removal
- Skin Smoothing
- Stretch Mark Removal
The speed at which you will see results depends on the condition you are treating, the needle length used and how extensively your body needs to remodel the affected area. Skin renews itself every 40 days, which is why your treatment should be carried out for at least a three-month period. Results are dramatic and fast. You will be able to notice smoother, clearer skin within the first 2-3 weeks, and your skin should heal completely after several months.For scarring you may see improvement with one treatment but it may take up to 5 or 6 treatments for complete resolution of all scarring.

Understanding Our Skin
The concept of skin renewal can be described simply as wound and heal. The youthful glow on a baby's skin is the result of constant skin renewal, which is the shedding of old skin cells continually being replenished by new ones. As we enter our teen years and beyond, skin renewal starts to slow. Research has shown that when people reach their 40's and 50's, skin only sheds approximately once every fifty-three day sand leads to dullness and wrinkling.
When we try to resurface the skin, we are targeting treatment within the epidermis (top layer of skin). Lotions and topical creams applied on your skin are only able to stay idly on top of this layer of skin because the molecules are too large to penetrate through the skin.
Microneedling allows larger desired molecules to penetrate through the top layer of the epidermis through the micro-channels and repair the skin from the inside out without damaging the surface of the skin. This eliminates the risks and negative side effects on the skin commonly encountered with chemical peeling, and laser resurfacing.
