Micro NeedlingHelps with wrinkled and photo-aged skin
Micro-Needling is an exciting new treatment to DermaCenter™ which produces dramatic changes in wrinkled and photo-aged skin. The MicroPen puts tiny pin-point punctures to the deeper layers of your skin. This dermal injury starts the release of growth factors that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. It also creates micro-channels, to infuse anti-aging serums deeper into the skin for greater overall effects. It's also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy and this treatment will help with acne scars, lines & wrinkles, texture issues, and scars with minimal downtime.
