Is Micro-Needling For Me?

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling is known by many names, also referred to as skin needling, micro-needling therapy, and collagen induction therapy (CIT). Micro-needling is a skin-rejuvenation procedure using  minimally invasive fine needles. This process stimulates the skin to fill the microscopic wounds with new collagen and elastin. The controlled skin injury allows the body to repair skin imperfections such as wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and large pores. The process allows an improvement in skin texture and firmness while reducing the imperfections.

    Will it hurt?

    • Andrea "AJ" Jenkins Lic. Esthetician says:

      Hi Annie,
      We numb the area prior to treatment, so it significantly reduces discomfort. There are a couple of areas that are a little sensitive, but completely tolerable and quick.

  2. Lindsey says:

    Hello, does mircroneedling reduce the appearance of acne scarring and brown spots?

    • Andrea "AJ" Jenkins Lic. Esthetician says:

      Thanks for your question Lindsey. People can expect great results for acne scars with micro needling. Once the acne is cleared, then we can begin treatment.

  3. Nikki says:

    Hi, will this remove hairs on the face?

    • Andrea "AJ" Jenkins Lic. Esthetician says:

      Hi Nikki, Micro-Needling is not for hair removal. Waxing is good for thicker dark hairs likes those found on brows and lip. Dermal-planing is a a good option for the “peach fuzz” type of hair most often found on the sides of the face.
