Microneedling

This advanced skin treatment involves working over the skin with a derma-roller containing hundreds of tiny needles causing trauma to the epidermis and dermal layer to help stimulate the body’s repairing mechanism and in turn boost collagen and fibroblast production which rejuvenate’s the skin.

The treatment can be used on any area of the skin including hands, face, neck, scarring, pigmentation and stretch marks . Treatment can then be repeated every 6 weeks or 2-3 weeks for pigmentation. A course of 3 is recommended for optimal results, and a course of 4 for pigmentation.
