Microneedling

This treatment can be used on all skin types to address the wide range of problems such as acne scars, stretch marks, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. This allows for more versatility than lasers, chemical peels or other common ablative skin treatments which are sensitive to darker skin types.

Microneedling is virtually painless. While some areas may feel more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort. Our Aesthetician will apply a mild topical anesthetic prior to each treatment. Significant healing takes place within the first 2 hours post treatment and most patients heal completely within 24 hours. Slight swelling, heat and redness (like a mild sunburn) is normally observed and may last up to 2 to 3 days in some patients.

Results can be seen after the first treatment. Real differences are achieved with 3-6 monthly treatments. Our Aesthetician will recommend treatment options depending on age, complexity and severity of the damaged skin.
