Micro-needling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy. We lose collagen as we age, and that is why we see wrinkles and fine lines crop up over time. Micro-needling can also help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation.
Three treatments are spaced 6 weeks apart. Results are not immediate. The results come from your body healing the "micro-trauma" it has endured by producing collagen. Collagen restores skins elasticity. Additional treatments are case dependent.

The area is cleaned and then numbed using a topical cream.
The eDerma Stamp is used to at varying depths over the area to achieve pin point bleeding. The device is able to glide over your body using a glycerine and hyaluronic acid mixture.
Next a hyaluronic acid mask is applied to the area and you rest for 20 minutes. This step takes a lot of the redness down, but you can expect the treatment area to remain red for approximately 24 hours. The level of redness has been equated to looking sunburned.
You are provided with aftercare instructions following the treatment.
