A minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.
The Micropen creates micro-channels in the skin during treatment, applying hyaluronic acid or PRP in combination with microneedling can result in extraordinary improvement, especially when completing a series of 3 to 5 treatments.
Dull skin, sun damage, aging, scars, pigmentation...
Micro needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. Sound appealing? Not so much. But this minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredible effective.
“The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging,” says board certified dermatologist and RealSelf contributor Sejal Shah, MD. (It works the same way lasers do, only you’re injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.) Believe it or not, micro needling has become hugely popular among skincare fanatics- Vogue is calling it the next big thing in anti-aging.
