Microneedling can be used on all skin types and all skin colors to address a wide range of problems such as fine lines and winkles, acne scars, sagging skin, sun damaged skin, skin rejuvenation, hyper/hypo pigmentation, stretch marks and dark spots.
A microneedling treatment is virtually painless; at most some light pressure can be felt. While some area may feel more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort and the applied treatment solution also makes the treatment more tolerable.

Significant healing takes place within the first 2 hours post treatment and most clients heal completely within 24 hours. However, some sensitive skin may require up to 48 hours.
