Micro-Needling is a procedure that works to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and overall improvement of the skin’s appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of smoother, softer skin.
