Does microneedling tighten the skin?
Microneedling doesn’t only help correct problem areas on damaged skin. It also has the added benefit of tightening up loose skin making it incredibly popular with both women and men. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen which causes skin to sag and become less firm.

How long after microneedling can I get a peel?
Peeling and flaking of the treatment area may occur three to five days after microneedling as a result of increased skin cell turnover. Avoid picking and scratching at your skin. Instead, use a gentle moisturizer to help combat dry skin.
