Why consider microneedling in Seattle?
In recent years, microneedling has become a highly popular method of restoring youthfulness to the complexion. The procedure can be used to treat not only the face, but the hands, belly, neck, chest and scalp as well. By creating tiny micro-wounds in the skin, the body is stimulated to produce more collagen and elastin, giving your complexion a healthier, more youthful glow along with firmness and improved skin texture.
