Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. This allows for better absorption of topical skincare products, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. As a result, microneedling can help to improve a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment that can be performed on all skin types. It is also relatively quick and painless, with most patients experiencing only mild side effects such as redness and swelling.
If you are looking for a new treatment to improve the texture and appearance of your skin, microneedling may be a good option for you. To learn more about microneedling and how it can benefit you, contact our office today.
There are countless articles and research papers on the benefits of acupuncture, but did you know that it can also be used to combat the signs of aging? A natural alternative to surgery or Botox, facial acupuncture is merely an extension of traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine philosophy.

Now, you might be worried about acupuncture needles placed in your face, but acupuncture is safe and effective and is recognized by the World Health Organization and there are established guidelines for practice just like any other health profession. Practitioners are also licensed by their state’s department of health so you can be confident that you are in good hands. continue reading
