Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a skin rejuvenation treatment with little downtime and less expensive than laser therapies. The SkinPen microneedling device is used to create micro-inuries in the skin, which triggers new collagen and elastin formation. This will improve fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and stretch marks. After the recommended amount of sessions, you are left with smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin! Best of all, SkinPen doesn’t rely on heat or chemicals, so the results are natural and safe for all skin tones and types.

What to expect

During your Botox appointment at NK Aesthetics, we will discuss your goals and areas of concern.

The injections only take just a couple minutes, with the appointment lasting only about 30 minutes, you can be in and out of the office quickly!
