Micro Needling is a safe and effective method for all skin types.
Micro Needling dramatically increases the amount of healthy collagen or elastin in the skin. During the process of Micro Needling, small micro-channels are created in the skin to activate the body’s natural healing response. This starts the regeneration cycle of the skin leading to the release of growth factors within the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, collagen and elastin production is accelerated to heal the wound, which builds new layers of healthy skin cells.
