Microneedling

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, becomes one of the most popular beauty treatments around.  It is a minimally invasive technique that boosts your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, the two of the most important substances in maintaining youthful, glowing skin. It  The concept is simple, by inflicting thousands of imperceptible injuries to the top layer of skin, the body is encouraged to produce additional collagen and regenerate the surface layer with fresh, unblemished skin. It is nearly painless and has been shown to have incredible effect on the health and beauty of your skin.

  • Fine wrinkles
  • Sun spot and melasma,
  • Large pores

What to expect after the treatment?

Improved skin appearance begins to occur almost immediately and continues for 4 to 6 weeks. For best results, Microneedling can be repeated every 6 weeks as needed.  Ideal result may need several treatments depending on your concerns.

Can microneedling be combined with other treatments?

Microneedling can be combined with a liquid treatment on the skin surface -platelet rich plasma (PRP) to further improve skin quality, evenness, and texture. This is highly effective because the skin absorbs more of these growth factors as a result of microneedling treatment.  

Who should chose microneedling?

Microneedling is preferable to laser and chemical peels in many patients because it is safe for use in all skin tones, all parts of the body including stretch marks on the abdomen. In addition, the downtime with Microneedling is quite short, with transient redness usually lasting less than a day as compared to one week or more with peels or laser.

Because it is mechanical and doesn’t involve any chemicals or neurotoxins, the technique is reassuring to many.
