Microneedling aka collagen induction therapy, is a holistic skincare treatment, which stimulates our natural healing mechanism to provide the most natural looking results.
The mechanism of the treatment is to cause micro-tears in order to stimulate your own natural healing process by triggering the release of cytokines and growth factors which stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin (the keys to youthful skin).
The increase in natural collagen results in skin tightening, reduction in fine lines and deep wrinkles, as well as the restructuring of acne scar tissue.
Benefits of Microneedling?
• removes fine lines and deeper wrinkles
• tightens skin pores
• improves skin tone
• improves skin color
• reduces acne scars
• stimulates collagen production

Does it hurt?
Topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to the treatment, which allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Patients are asked to arrive at least 40 minutes before their treatment to apply the numbing cream.
How many treatment do I need?
Typical treatment series requires four to six sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart. Results are long-term (new collagen lasts five to 10 years) and accumulative, which make microneedling an excellent choice for holistic and preventative skincare.
