Micro-Needling 101

You may have seen or heard about Micro-Needling in the news recently and we are extremely excited to offer this innovative technology here at Vitality.  Like most people you may not fully understand what Micro-needling is or what benefits you can expect from Micro-needling.  Micro-needling is a non-surgical technique that is applied to the skin after being prepped with a lidocaine gel to create numbness. The process utilizes a power handpiece to create tiny channels into the dermis of the skin, which initiates the body’s natural healing process to create collagen and elastin. The end result is to improve skin texture with reduction of the crepey appearance and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as diminishing the hyper-pigmentation of skin. This form of collagen induction is created by a mechanical force delivered to the dermis to allow improvement in acne pock marks and can weld stretch marks together by creating collagen.  You will start to notice your skin improving after a few weeks.  We recommend a series of treatments to get optimal results from Micro-needling.
