We want our skin to looks its best because it is one of the first things people notice. Years of acne and sun damage can take its toll on our skin, potentially leaving it wrinkled or scarred with an uneven tone. Microneedling is the new solution to acne scars and early wrinkles.*

Who is a Candidate?
If you have years of acne scars, the first sign of wrinkles, or if you’re interested in improving the overall texture or look of your skin, microneedling is a great option. Because microneedling doesn’t use heat, it is perfect for all skin types.
Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that can be performed in any dermatologist’s office or cosmetic clinic.
Before beginning the procedure, the esthetician will numb the area with a numbing cream. He or she will then use a handheld tool that contains tiny needles in the tip. The length of the needles can be adjusted depending on the depth of the area being treated. Because of this, microneedling is great for all areas of the body, especially the legs or stomach for those patients who have stubborn stretch marks. The esthetician will then use the tool to make small punctures in the top layer of your skin.
The small punctures in your skin trick your body into thinking it is wounded, which results in the production of collagen. As we age, the production of collagen slows down so microneedling helps to kick-start that production, leaving you with smoother and more even skin.
The entire procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. After your microneedling procedure, you want to avoid putting makeup or harsh creams or lotions on the area that has been treated.
