Safe, effective, and painless – medical microneedling is the natural solution to achieve gorgeous and flawless skin without the risks associated with invasive cosmetic treatments, lasers, surgical procedures, or synthetic collagen injections.


Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, medical microneedling is a 100% natural process that harnesses the skin’s innate healing ability. Fine needles (from 1mm up to 1.5mm) penetrate the skin and create microchannels in the epidermal layer of the skin. That initiates a beneficial healing response. 

As the skin repairs, concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins are produced in the body, improving skin thickness by up to 80%. This results in tighter plump skin, softer wrinkles, and faded scars.


The benefits of medical microneedling are backed by science. Clinical studies show that the thousands of microscopic channels in the dermis layer activate the skin’s natural wound healing cascade.

Benefits of Medical Microneedling

Medical Microneedling is gentle on the skin. It does not strip off the epidermis, unlike techniques such as laser, deep chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. That eliminates the risk of post-traumatic inflammatory reactions, skin thinning, scarring, and other side effects.

Microneedling also improves the effectiveness of creams and serums that are applied afterwards by around 1,000 times. The skin’s protective function and the big molecular size of active ingredients prevent about 99.7% of the applied serum to pass through the stratum corneum. 

With microneedling, the skin can absorb up to 90% to 95% of active substances in topical serums.  This makes Microneedling a great alternative to Mesotherapy or Profhilo, and offers longer-term results. 

Medical Microneedling has minimal recovery time. You will see and feel a visible difference in your skin’s health immediately and the effects will build up over the first week of your first appointment.
