Micro Needling is an amazing way to stimulate collagen to reorganize damaged skin of your face and neck, which will lead to tightening of the skin and improving contour. The skin of the face and/or neck is cleansed and topically anesthetized over the areas of treatment. The skin is then treated with an antiseptic. Under sterile conditions, a motorized Micro Needling pen will be passed over the areas that will benefit from resurfacing. Thousands of needle punctures will be made with very precise and fluid strokes. The topical anesthetic will prevent feeling any discomfort during the procedure. With proper post procedure skin care, the improvements will be seen within a week or two and will continue to improve over subsequent treatments. Usually 3 to 5 treatments, spaced one month apart, are needed to achieve the desired results. This is another important treatment option to restore youthful skin as well as to improve contour problems caused by acne scars and other skin disorders.
