What is Microneedling?
Microneedling works by stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. This is achieved by controlled micro-injuries to the dermis with microscopic needles that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimising cellular damage. The result is effective collagen production and remodelling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
In addition to treating acne scarring, it improves the appearance of large pores, fine wrinkles, loss of elasticity, sun damage, and allows deeper penetration of topical products, increasing their effectiveness.

What to expect?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure with very little downtime. It takes approximately 30 minutes. It can be used at any time of year and is appropriate for all skin colors and types. It can be used on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
The SkinPen microneedling treatment typically causes mild swelling and redness in the first couple of days following the procedure. It is similar to a mild sunburn with most of the redness and swelling gone within 2-3 days of your treatment.
It typically takes 3-6 sessions for optimal results.
