What is Micro-Needling
Micro-needling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive procedure for skin rejuvenation. A micro-needling device with fine needles is used to create a controlled skin injury.
The controlled injury causes the body to react by producing collagen and new capillaries. This will then assist to improve skin texture, firmness and hydration. **

Before the treatment a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort during the treatment which can take up to an hour per session * depending on the area needing to be treated. After the treatment there may be dryness, redness and swelling which can last a couple of days after the session.
The number of treatments needed vary from patient to patient and depend on each individual’s skin condition or ailment.
Micro-needling can assist to improve skin texture and I have found that it also aids to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.* You may decide to repeat the treatment every 4-6 weeks. In my practice working with patients, I have found the treatment to be safe for all skin types . Results and expectations can be discussed during your first appointment.
Disclaimer* Results of the treatments I perform do vary from person to person. I do NOT guarantee results or that results may be achievable for everyone. I will discuss your expectations, outcomes and risks (if any) during your consultation. Please refer to my Full Disclaimer for more information.
