Microneedling | Natural Skin Rejuvenation
Microneedling is one of the most popular, non-invasive treatments to help naturally rejuvenate skin.

In addition, Microneedling can provide a subtle lift to tighten skin laxity.Most importantly, Microneedling is an FDA cleared, treatment that requires minimal to no downtime.

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses small, surgical grade needles to create micro-wounds in the skin. When the body experiences injuries, even superficial damage from the superfine needles, it begins healing itself. In skincare science, this is called “controlled wound healing.” The body starts regenerating skin cells, releases growth factors, and produces more collagen and elastin.
What is Collagen?
Collagen, and its sister protein, are connective tissues found in the skin. They create a scaffolding to support and structure your skin. They also help the skin heal. This is why the body initiates the production of more collagen whenever the skin is injured.
An abundance of collagen is behind every characteristic associated with healthy, youthful looking skin. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen production decreases. This allows the skin to sag, wrinkle, and become blemished. By stimulating a “controlled wound response,” Microneedling stimulates the body to create more collagen and elastin.

Does Microneedling Hurt?
Treatments use the aid of numbing cream, making Microneedling virtually painless. Individual experiences may vary. *A published patient survey in JAMA Dermatology reports that on a scale of pain between 1 and 10, with ten being the most painful, patients rated their pain level a one. The study concludes, “the needling procedure was not painful.” ¹

Microneedling + Hyaluronic Acid
Microneedling can drastically improve the skin’s ability to absorb topical skincare treatments. When used in conjunction with facials that include topical ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or other nutrients, individuals see a vast improvement in their skin.
Scientific research shows that Collagen Induction Therapy does much more than create micro-injuries that stimulate a natural healing process. The ultra-fine needle’s path creates a micro-channel that facilitates the penetration of topical agents, which enhances the effects of active ingredients. ²
