What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that rejuvenates your skin using very fine needles called microneedles. When microneedles gently puncture your skin, they trigger the body’s healing process, which includes producing two proteins, collagen, and elastin.

Your skin naturally synthesizes both proteins, where collagen imparts strength and elastin makes skin resilient. As you age, however, their production declines, contributing to loose skin and wrinkles.

Microneedling boosts these structural proteins, so the new skin that grows in to replace your old skin is stronger and better toned.*

What skin conditions improve with microneedling?

The team at Avante Laser & MediSpa can use microneedling to treat any part of your body, but it’s often used to fight signs of aging on the face, neck, décolletage, arms, and hands. The procedure effectively diminishes the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Brown spots
  • Skin hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks

The team at Avante Laser & MediSpa offer microneedling using the state-of-the-art SkinPen® (with or without PRP), which delivers treatment rapidly, is safe for all skin types, and can reach small areas such as the skin around your nose.
