What is 



Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This controlled skin injury prompts the body to respond by producing more collagen and elastin, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness.

How does it work?

Our skilled practitioners at Atlantic Skin Care use a state-of-the-art device to ensure precision and safety during your microneedling session. The device's fine needles create micro-injuries in the skin, triggering your body's natural healing process and stimulating collagen production. This rejuvenates the skin from within, smoothing out imperfections and enhancing your skin’s overall appearance.
