All-natural skin renewal
 

Microneedling is less expensive than laser treatments, which can cost about four times as much. Microneedling may work better for people with darker skin tones because it doesn’t involve heat the way laser treatments do, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation, or color. Ask a professional what’s best for your skin -- and your budget.

 

How it works

Learn more about Microneedling
 

Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.

This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too. The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.

Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also done on other parts of the body, such as your stomach or thighs.

Is it painful?

The treatment itself is pretty painless but most microneedling professionals will use a topical numbing cream to avoid discomfort that the client may experience.

How long does it take?

The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how big the area is. For larger areas total prep and procedure time could be up to two hours.

Is it Safe?

  • Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.
  • It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health.
  • The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant.
  • You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.
