Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure which involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles using an electric pen. It is also known as collagen induction therapy as the small wounds cause the body to create a wound healing response, making more collagen and elastin and renewing the skin cells. Microneedling may help with issues including; acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, large pores, sun damage and stretch marks.
During treatment, an electric pen is used which allows the practitioner to control the intensity best suited to your needs, and a specialized serum is used on the skin containing hyaluronic acid, minerals and peptides to stimulate cell rejuvenation. A course of 2-3 treatments 30 days apart is recommended for optimum results.
