Microneedling is a skin resurfacing technology that uses the skin’s natural healing process to reduce skin imperfections, treat sun damage, and restore a smoother, clearer complexion.
Additionally, microneedling requires no downtime for most patients, and does not require a post-treatment “peeling” period.
However, results may not be as dramatic as what is possible with more aggressive treatments, and multiple microneedling treatments are usually needed to treat specific skin concerns in an area.
The treated area may be red and swollen for the first 24 – 48 hours which will gradually settle down.

Instead of removing layers of skin with heat or chemicals, microneedling creates microscopic “injuries” in the skin using an instrument containing dozens of very fine, short needles.
The “injuries” are not visible to the naked eye, but they do trigger the natural healing response, prompting your skin to produce new collagen and elastin and regenerate new, healthy skin cells.
Microneedling can treat the following conditions:
Since microneedling does not remove layers of skin with chemicals or lasers, it is generally safe for all skin types, even darker skin.
