The way it works is very simple!! A topical anesthetic is applied first to numb the area. Then, Nikki will use very fine needles to create enough of an injury to force the skin to heal. As it heals, it fills in any imperfections and smooths out areas damaged from acne, injury or stretch marks. On scars, the process breaks the tissue down and as it reforms, it comes back smooth. The process stimulates collagen as well, which we all know gives the skin an over all boost we are all looking for. Nikki started using this technique in 2005 on scars, after she became certified in scar repair. This application is used on the face for fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and over all better skin texture and rejuvenation since 2011 and after additional education and certification. Check out the before and after photos on the Areola and 3d nipple page, there are many more examples where Nikki has used microneedling to repair the scars.
