Micro Needling

Microneedling therapy is an amazing treatment that induces collagen which in turn plumps and tightens the skin.

Micro needling is performed with a device with numerous tiny needles.  The aim of this treatment is to create a controlled injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond by producing more collagen in the treated area. These needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of up to 2mm. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and fine lines
