WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling works by stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. This is achieved by puncturing the dermis with microscopic needles. The treatment utilises the skins ability to heal itself, in turn triggering the production of new collagen. In addition to treating pores, fine lines & wrinkles, loss of elasticity, minor scarring (including acne scarring) and sun damage it also enables topical products to penetrate deeper into the skin, increasing their effectiveness. Microneedling is not painful, has minimal downtime, and leaves your skin looking tighter and rejuvenated. It also can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, and stretch marks anywhere on the body for all skin types.
What are the benefits of Micro-Needling?
