Microneedling involves using tiny needles to create microscopic holes in the top layer of skin. This stimulates the body's natural healing process resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. The process works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.

It is effective in reducing:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Pigmentation
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

It also aids in smoothing skin texture and reducing pore size, and allows for better absorption of skin care products. PIH Health uses a device called Dermapen®, that is safe to use on any skin type, requires very short treatment time, causes minimal discomfort and provides little time to recover.

Lisette Peralta PA-C with PIH Heatlh Dermatology & Aesthetic Medicine says, “Benefits can be seen after one treatment, but 3-5 treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart, are recommended for maximum results. Our patients are loving the results.”
