What is Micro-Needling? 

Micro-Needling is a technique that is used to penetrate the skin with tiny sterile needles so that collagen can form and renew the skin in the area where the micro-Needling tool is introduced. The idea is that the micro-Needling tool is creating microscopic injuries to the skin and the skin will try and heal itself by producing more collagen in the area. 

Is Micro-Needling Painful? 

Micro-Needling when used with a numbing cream is nearly painless, but some patients may experience sensitivity in areas where the skin is thinner such as the forehead and around the lips.  

What Areas Can Micro-Needling Be Used On? 

Micro-Needling can be used all over the body, but most patients prefer the treatment on their face and neck. Some patients will use it for scarring, wrinkle reduction, and correcting pigmentation issues. 

How Many Treatments Will I Need? 

When performed in a clinical setting by trained professionals, the number of treatments needed can be minimal depending on the area being worked on as well as the desired effect. Most patients only have 3-5 treatments and are satisfied with results.

“I have had micro-Needling treatments on my face and hands. I was working a very stressful job and unfortunately was not taking care of myself and my skin was starting to show it. I had the worst cystic acne that I had ever had in my life…and I’m an adult in my 30’s. I was embarrassed to go out and see friends, would not take pictures, and felt lost. Once I started taking better care of myself, my skin improved, but I was left with some discoloration and scarring to show the battle I had been through. I started micro-Needling treatments and did a series of 3 and that was all it took. Today, I get compliments on my skin and people who saw me during my battle with cystic acne are shocked to see how smooth and even-toned my skin is. I learned about micro-Needling from a friend who had stretch marks post pregnancy and tried micro-Needling with success. I too, have had success and I tell everyone I know about the benefits of it.”
