Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy which creates a series of micro channels  or micro-point punctures in the skin. These controlled injuries to the skin act to not only allow serums to be fully penetrated but also stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Results are most visible after 3 treatments but can be visible within a few weeks..

Micro needling promotes firmer, tighter skin and can remedy a wide range of skin conditions such as acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, crows feet, hyperpigmentation, rough and uneven texture and loss of elasticity.
