Dermal Microneedling with the Bellus SkinPen II
Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury by producing new collagen and encouraging elasticity. Dermal microneedling initiates this injury response by creating hundreds of temporary micro channels (openings) in the skin without any thermal energy or skin removal.
In response, our bodies lay down new collagen under the skin, which resuls in tightening of the skin and smoothing of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. We use the Bellus SkinPen II, one of the highest-quality microneedling devices available.
