What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which a dermatologist or aesthetician creates tiny punctures in the skin using micro-fine needles (from 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter) to improve fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, light to moderate acne scaring, stetch marks and issues with skin textures or pore sizes.
This triggers the body’s wound healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Additionally, once punctures are made, products applied topically (such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C) are able to penetrate deeper into the skin in order to work more effectively.
What to Expect From Microneedling
You might experience a bit of redness immediately following the treatment, but once it subsides, you’ll notice a dewy, glowy complexion and a new plumpness to your skin. It is recommended to receive one treatment every other month or every month to maintain the results.
What conditions can Microneedling improve?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage and aging spots
- Light to moderate acne scarring
- Stretch marks

What should I expect after the procedure?
Many patients experience light to moderate redness for a period of 24 hours or less after the procedure. In order to minimize redness we recommend patients to avoid direct sunlight and use mineral makeup and hyaluronic acid.
