Microneedling - SkinPen

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling stimulates new collagen in the skins surface by creating very small micro-channels using micro-needles. The Microneedling SkinPen device utilizes a one time use (disposable) cartridge that contains 14 stainless steel microneedles that can penetrate the skin at different depths. These micro-needles will cause a controlled injury in the skins surface, boosting or inducing your own natural collagen.

What should I expect with Microneedling?

Once micro-channels are created in the skin surface it will heal (in about 2-3 days) and began the process of replacing it with brand new collagen and elastin (in about 4 weeks) overall improving the skin health and wellness.
