Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a pen containing fine needles to penetrate the top layer of your skin.The pen causes micro injuries to stimulate your body to produce collagen and elastin to improve the texture and overall health of your skin. This technique will lead to a healthier layer of skin with a smoother texture, renewed firmness, can reduce pore size, can soften wrinkles and reduce appearance of stretch marks as well as scars. With as few as three non-invasive treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment – and step out with confidence.
