Microneedling takes advantage of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis to a depth of 1.5 to 2 mm. This triggers new collagen synthesis without causing new scar tissue formation. So this minimally invasive treatment stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair itself, especially collagen and elastin production. Safety and patient comfort are our top priorities when performing microneedling. That’s why we use hyaluronic acid, a clean, non-cytotoxic hydrogel, which supports proper wound-healing while hydrating the skin and balancing pH during and after the procedure.
For all our microneedling treatments we use AcuMicro needling device, the latest advancement in micro-therapy. AcuMicro is designed to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on the face and body. AcuMicro is different from traditional derma-rollers that can bend, break, or even rust, resulting in possible infection or scarring with reuse. It uses adjustable length, disposable straight needles to penetrate at a 90-degree angle. This adjustability allows for differences in skin thickness and skin types, as well as enhanced safety.
Am I a candidate?
Because it’s minimally invasive and doesn’t cause significant wounding of skin, virtually anybody can safely undergo microneedling therapy. Even those with thin skin can undergo treatment since the depth of penetration can be finely controlled.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling helps reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, and rejuvenate aging skin. In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three microneedling treatments resulted in a 31 percent improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin. Microneedling was effective for all skin types.
We can treat many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
