Microneedling (AKA collagen induction therapy) involves using a medical grade pen which has 12 fine needles to create thousands of tiny, invisible puncture wounds on the skin. This can be done on any part of the body. The procedure causes mechanical damage to the skin and leads to thousands of micro-channels. Micro-channels allow for direct infusion of serums into the skin while the mechanical injury leads to new skin formation.

What Microneedling is suited for?

  • Collagen production
  • Scars/acne scars
  • Fine or deep lines/wrinkles
  • Skin tightening
  • Improved skin texture
  • Reducing pore size
  • Stretch marks
