Microneedling is a great treatment to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and scars caused by acne. It is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny and sterile needles. Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, Microneedling increases the skin’s production of collagen and elastin to reduce the signs of aging further. SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device on the market. SkinPen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin to elicit your body’s natural wound-healing process.

WHY YOU NEED MICRONEEDLING?

Collagen and elastin are the essential protein fibers in the skin that give it support and elasticity. As we age these fibers break down and can cause wrinkles. Regenerating the collagen and elastin in the skin can help to give you a more youthful appearance overall. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, you can improve the texture of your skin and step out with confidence.
