Increased elasticity and collagen growth in the skin are often key to a healthier, more youthful looking face. The most popular request from our patients is to achieve these results without having to undergo an invasive, surgical procedure. For this reason, we offer Microneedling. One of the latest innovations to increase elasticity in the skin, Microneedling has become a popular choice for patients looking to diminish fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
The most common uses for Microneedling are:
- Acne Scarring
- Sagging Skin
- Fine Lines/Wrinkles
- Stretch Marks
- Uneven/Textured Skin
The Microneedling device works by penetrating the skin numerous times to stimulate new cell growth and increase collagen production. We recommend patients receive about three to six treatments to achieve the best results.
