Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
In microneedling, tiny injuries are made in your skin using a small handheld device with numerous small short needles. These controlled injures stimulate your body to produce more collagen and elastin which is lost as we age.
Microneedling can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars. The procedure is quick, usually 30 minutes, with minimal downtime. Afterwards skin may appear red or flaky which will subside in 1 week.
This treatment can be used on all skin types to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles while improving the overall texture and tone of the skin.

Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and scars — typically on the face. A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.
Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more-dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times.
