At Prestige Beauty Bar Toronto, we believe that healthy skin is a reflection of your overall health, and collagen is an essential building block to nourishing your skin. Microneedling is the treatment that does it all. By triggering a natural repair process, microneedling increases collagen and elastin production, resulting in visible improvements for a wide range of skin concerns. From treating blemishes, acne, and scarring to reducing wrinkles, burns, enlarged pores, and stretch marks, microneedling is your solution to healthier and more radiant skin.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment where tiny, sterile needles are are used to make small punctures in the skin. The micro-injuries trigger a natural process of repair, increasing the production of collagen and elastin and visibly improving a wide range of skin concerns.
