What is Micro-Needling?
During a micro-needling session, the treatment is delivered by a handheld device similar to a pen. The tip of the device contains several microscopic needles that, when passed over the skin, penetrate the surface at a depth of a few millimeters.
While the tiny holes that are made in the skin are not visible and do not draw blood, they stimulate the body’s natural healing process. As we age, the collagen and elastin that are responsible for the skin’s strength and structure are produced less. This leads to the loose, sagging skin and texture irregularities that are commonly experienced with age.
Micro-needling treatments in Atlanta promote the production of new collagen and elastin, restoring even texture and softer, smoother skin in treated areas. As micro-needling opens up the pores and allows better absorption, skincare products are often used in conjunction to achieve optimal results.

What Can Micro-Needling Treat?
The light exfoliation of micro-needling can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of several skin conditions, including:
- Mild acne scars
- Loose, sagging skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- New or old scars
- Irregular skin texture
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
Micro-needling is minimally-invasive and will not damage or irritate the skin. Common side effects are slight redness akin to a sunburn and temporary swelling, which clear up in the first day or so. As micro-needling uses no chemicals, there is no risk of hyperpigmentation.
As it may take the skin some time to generate new collagen and elastin, results are gradual. But the natural, subtle effects of micro-needling are long-lasting and can be maintained with a good skincare regimen and taking precautions in the sun.
