Microneedling in Exton, PA

Microneedling is a technique that stimulates collagen production to tighten skin, reduce fine lines, and improve your complexion.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a technique that involves creating tiny channels in the skin surface to stimulate new collagen production. Collagen is key to younger skin because it is the substance that provides the underlying support that your skin needs to resist wrinkles and fine lines. Microneedling is also effective for acne scars, stretch marks, and other minor scars to camouflage them with the surrounding skin. The procedure gradually breaks down scars and promotes skin regeneration.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling is considered safe for all skin types. Some conditions should be resolved prior to having a microneedling treatment, and Dr. Liu can help you decide if microneedling is right for you.
