With the latest technology, the needles are energized with radiofrequency to help stimulate collagen in the skin. By promoting collagen growth, microneedling can help reverse signs of aging like fine lines, fade acne scars, and make skin look refreshed. The skin responds by filling the wounds with collagen and elastin, which are natural proteins that can effectively strengthen and reduce the appearance of scarring.

The needles are automated and their puncture depth can be adjusted to your particular needs, creating a more personalized treatment that can make your skin look as natural as possible.
