Smooth and Brighten Your Skin with Micro-Needling

If you have fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone or texture, mild scars, or other visible skin issues, micro-needling may be the solution for you.

Micro-needling is a process that uses tiny pinpricks to stimulate collagen production in your skin. Collagen is a protein, the building block of your skin cells that helps make your skin strong. As we age, collagen production slows. Without new skin cells to fill in gaps, tiny lines and wrinkles begin to form, or scars don’t heal completely.

Micro-needling uses your skin’s own regenerative processes to make it work like young skin again. In fact, it works so well at producing new collagen that it’s also called a collagen induction treatment.

Your esthetician will use a special tool with micro-fine needles that makes tiny punctures on your skin. This sends a signal to your skin to heal itself – and your skin produces collagen and new skin cells to fill in the gaps.

This means that wrinkles and lines fade and look less noticeable. Differences in skin tone disappear, since new cells replace those affected by pigmentation. Old injuries that didn’t heal well from old acne or cuts are also less noticeable because your skin fills in those uneven areas with new cells.

With an even skin tone, fewer lines and wrinkles, and less scarring, skin treated with micro-needling looks brighter and more radiant. Your skin can be healthier because nourishing serums and other products with vitamins and antioxidants can penetrate deeper to work more efficiently.

Most micro-needling procedures take about 30 minutes. This may vary based on your individual needs and the type of skin issues you’re treating. You’ll see visible improvements within 48 hours of treatment, and most people need multiple treatments for optimal results, and you may need maintenance treatments after about six months to a year.

There’s no significant downtime after a micro-needling treatment, but there may be redness, and your esthetician will advise you about proper aftercare to ensure your treatment is effective.
