What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling is a minimally invasive technique that uses fine needles that gently puncture the epidermis (upper layer of the skin) and glides across the face neck or body to enhance the skin’s function and encourage cell regeneration.
A topical anesthetic is applied and an electric device is used to puncture the skin at a speed of 90 times per minute. The depth of the needle depends on the individual requirements.
A hand-held roller home use device can be also be used 2 to 3 times per week or even daily to assist longer term skin results. Since the Micro-Needling home kits do not penetrate the skin as deeply, no anesthetic is required.
