Q:  What is Micro-Needling?

A:  Micro-Needling, known as collagen induction therapy offers exceptional skin-rejuvenation and resurfacing with minimal downtime and discomfort.  There is no destruction of healthy skin layers that you often see with laser resurfacing treatments.  A hand-held device with fine surgical needles creates micro-perforations in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.


Q:  So, this is a natural anti-aging skin treatment?

A:  Yes, as it does stimulate your skin’s natural ability to heal itself by promoting collagen growth!


Q:  What conditions can Micro-Needling improve the appearance of?

A:         * Fine lines and wrinkles

* Acne scarring

* Scars from burns or incisions

* Stretch marks

* Sagging skin (improves texture & firmness)

* Coarse skin and large pores


Q:  Are the treatments painful?

A:  Patients tolerate the treatment very well with topical lidocaine applied prior to treatment.  After the treatment, people describe the sensation of a mild to moderate sunburn.  In most cases, the patient does not experience any downtime.


Q:  How many treatment are required?

A:  Most patients require 6 treatments to achieve visible results that are seen after several treatments.  We offer packages to make the treatments more affordable.


Q:  Can this procedure be done on all skin types?

A:  Traditionally, darker skinned individuals were not candidates for laser procedures; however, Micro-needling can be performed on all skin types, regardless of color.
