MICRO/SKIN NEEDLING (CIT)

smooth, youthful looking skin

Micro needling boosts your natural collagen to give you smoother, healthier skin. It is used to help with acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigment, and enlarged pores.

how it works

The treatment involves a small device which is made of tiny needles that is applied to the surface of the skin. The device creates tiny punctures that stimulate a natural healing response to encourage natural collagen and regeneration response.

The wound healing response stimulates the production of collagen and elastin formation which helps to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and acne scaring. It can also reduce the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks.
