Micro needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, skin texture, tone and color.
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skins natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. As the skin repairs itself a significant improvement in the appearance occurs. Results can include improved texture and firmness as well as a reduction of scars, pore size and stretch marks. A recent survey of over 10,000 patients undergoing micro needling 88% give the treatment a “worth it” rating. Recommended frequency of treatment is one treatment every four weeks. Downtown is virtually zero.
How much does micro needling cost?
Answer: The typical cost of micro needling ranges from $199.00 to $2,300.00 with an average cost of $700.00 depending upon the size of the areas treated. Cost varies depending upon the complexity of procedure performed and the patient’s underlying medical condition.

What is the Medical Science behind Micro Needling?
Answer: Micro needling stimulates collagen formation. Micro needling creates a controlled non thermal injury beneath the skin surface stimulating the body to respond to the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers. Additionally, new capillaries for an improved blood supply occur in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines and other skin texture changes. Additionally, it can be used to perform treatments that improve the delivery of medications designed to treat specific medical conditions such as hair loss.
