Micro-needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
The repair process of your skin is accelerated by micro-needling through the creation of microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, typically resulting in better and faster results.
Prior to your micro-needling treatment, we apply hyaluronic acid onto the skin, which is naturally produced in the human body, to accelerate the growth of collagen. Collagen is critical to the skin because it supports skin structure. As your body’s collagen declines, the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration becomes more visible.
Maximizing collagen levels will help to keep skin supple. Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen synthesis up, as well as helps to retain skin moisture which contributes anti-aging benefits to the skin.

MICRO-NEEDLING FOR STRETCH MARKS & SCARS
Do you have unwanted scars or stretch marks? Micro-needling is highly effective for treating surgery scars, chickenpox scars, burn scars, ice pick scars, appendectomy scars, C-Section scars, breast enlargement scars, and tummy tuck scars.
Stretch marks occur when the skin is pulled due to rapid growth or stretching which disrupts the production of collagen. Here at Vissia, our micro-needling technology can help produce new elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in and the skin will then grow thicker while restoring elasticity. Visible changes may be seen in as little as a week after your micro-needling treatment.
Frequently asked questions
Who is not a candidate for micro-needling?
How many treatments will I need?
For patients with deep acne scarring, wrinkles, or stretch marks we recommended 6-8 treatments at 3-4 week intervals.
Will I experience redness after the treatment?
Most people will experience redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or bruising. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won't be seen until a few months later.
Can you have micro-needling performed the same day as any of our other medical services?
You most definitely can have micro-needling combined with other services. However, we recommend you wait 1 week before/after any Dermal Fillers as well as 2 weeks before/after Laser. Please consult with your esthetician when booking and be sure to mention wanting multiple services.
