What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling is the most effective and non-invasive way for an aesthetic professional to safely improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation, among other issues. Micro-needling will keep your skin looking and feeling younger by activating your body’s natural cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems. Micro-needling utilizes stimulation to communicate to your skin’s natural healing ability rather than using destruction and inflammation like most treatments available in the aesthetic industry. This results in a more enjoyable treatment, virtually non-existent downtimes and happier skin. Treat yourself to a micro-needling treatment today, your skin will thank you later!
Micro-needling creates micro-channels
Precision micro-needles are tapped into the skin creating uniform micro-channels. A single pass over the face using the ProCell system will create hundreds of thousands of micro-channels.
Stimulation of a healing response
Each micro-channel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen.
Smoothing of skin
Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen, creating healthier skin, improving the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin.

Results: Before & After
What does micro-needling feel like?
Most patients report warmth or minor skin pricks as the treatment is delivered. Many find the treatment relaxing and comfortable. Most patients can tolerate superficial treatments without any topical anesthetic. For deeper treatments or more comprehensive coverage, you should speak with your treatment provider about a topical anesthetic.
Is there any downtime with micro-needling treatment?
Most patients experience a mild redness following treatment. This varies widely based on the patient and skin type. Redness can last from 60-90 minutes. Apply makeup after 90 minutes. More aggressive treatments will extend recovery periods. You may apply makeup to the treated area one hour after treatment and return to normal activities.
What should I do before my micro-needling treatment?
It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for 48 hours in advance of your treatment. Remove all makeup and skin moisturizers from the surface of your skin before treatment.
