Microneedling: Why it’s worth the hype.

Microneedling is making its mark in the dermatology world. By now, you’ve seen beauty bloggers and influencers talk about their great results and you’re wondering if it’s worth the hype. It is.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a non-invasive, budget-friendly treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, leading to youthful, dewy skin. The procedure is ideal for the treatment of enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It also improves overall skin texture and tone. Now’s the perfect time to start as we tend to opt for a more natural look in the warmer months.

We also offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which can be combined with microneedling. PRP uses your own plasma to stimulate collagen production, leaving your skin supple and smooth. The added bonus? PRP can help speed up your microneedling recovery period. Don’t worry about downtime, though. Most patients only experience one to two days of mild redness, and after 24 hours you can wear light makeup.

Microneedling is safe for all skin types and can be administered throughout the year. Curious if you might be a good candidate for microneedling and/or PRP? Our team can help.
