Micro-Needling alternative to laser treatments

Micro-Needling

What does it do?

Micro needling reduces the appearance of:

  • Pore Size
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars (not recommended for inflamed acne)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Skin textural issues

What to expect

Before the treatment a topical numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes. Our patients report having little to no discomfort during the treatment. After the procedure your skin may appear red and feel warm similar to the sensation of a sunburn. Redness typically subsides the same day for some and up to two days for others.

How many treatments do I need?

Micro-Needling is performed in a series of anywhere between 4-8 treatments spaced out every 4-6 weeks depending on the condition of your skin. Please call our office to schedule a consultation to see if Micro-Needling is the right treatment for you.
