The Big Benefits of Microneedling

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, reduce large pores and uneven skin texture, and overall rejuvenate the skin.  We perform microneedling with SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. Microneedling results in skin remodeling and effects the process of collagen and elastin formation, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful-looking skin.
