Micro-Needling is an esthetic treatment for the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks and the improvement of skin's texture, tone and color. A cartridge containing many small micro-points is attached to a Micropen, the pen is then gently pressed against the skin while it is being moved continuously across the face, neck, arm or other part of the body. After the procedure, the skin's repair process results in a reduction of the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles.
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice some redness, much like a sunburn. The total healing time depends on the pen position used as well as the number of over lapping passes performed. Most patients experience redness for 2-4 days. There will be visible changes to the skin over several weeks and the skin can continue to improve for up to 6 months post treatment.
