Microneedling naturally rejuvenates skin, eliminates or reduces fine line and wrinkles, and treats scars and dark spots, without surgery or injections. Micro needles create micro-channels on the skin's surface, which stimulates a healing response in the skin, increasing production of both collagen and elastin and new skin cells. Having increased collagen & elastin causes the skin to become firmer, reducing scars, smoothing wrinkles and more.
It works by stimulating the immune system and wound healing mechanism. When the microneedles penetrate the skin, they cause micro wounds, which leads to reactions that heal the skin. Microneedling encourages serum topical absorption by 2000%! And after a series of monthly treatments, results can last for 3-5 years.
All microneedling sessions include a full body acupuncture treatment to address underlying issues of the skin & overall body health & wellness concerns.
BENEFITS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
reducing/eliminating fine lines & wrinkles,
crows feet and lip wrinkles,
dark spots - melasma,
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET TREATMENTS?
Treatments are recommended for a series of 4-6 treatments, once per month for 4-6 months.
4 treatments is most common, and 6 for more damaged skin.
Results begin to show within 1-2 weeks and continue to improve throughout each month. This allows the time necessary for the body to produce collagen.
Nano-microneedling & facial/cosmetic acupuncture are safe to receive between regular microneedling treatments, at least 2 weeks after the microneedling treatment.
ARE THERE ANY CAUTIONS?
