Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions
What is microneedling and how does it work?
The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process. Our skin reacts to any injury by immediately initiating the healing process. The healing process includes the release of growth factor, new epidermal growth, deposition of collagen and elastin and tissue remodeling or skin tightening. With microneedling, small punctures are made in the skin to encourage and speed up the onset of the healing process. The production of new collagen can reverse years of sun damage, address fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, texture, acne scars, hyper-pigmenation, and stretch marks.
Microneedling can be combined with procedures such as chemical peels, photofacial, microdermabrasion and customized facials. A series of 6 sessions is recommended.
