What is MicroNeedling?
MicroNeedling is the insertion of very short fine needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenating the skin. This can be done most effectively using a Microneedling pen, roller or dermastamp. The Pen like device oscillates a tip up and down to stimulate a skin reaction.
MicroNeedling and NanoNeedling both induce cell turnover, serum infusion and provoke the healing process that results in a skin transformation. NanoNeedling is similar to MicroNeedling except that is uses a cartridge that encompasses 81 silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells with the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin.
It is used to treat and improve facial conditions including acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, hair regrowth and pigment issues. With MicroNeedling you will get 3000% more product absorption. NanoNeedling allows for 97% more product absorption. This is found to be more useful for hyperpigmentation, fine lines, lip lines, crow's feet and other sensitive areas.
How often can MicroNeedling be done? Every 2-4 weeks depending on your sensitivity level and reactions to each treatment. NanoNeedling can be done 2-3 times a week, again depending on your sensitivity levels.
What are the Serum's used?
We use up to 5 serums to help with the treatments. We always use a good grade Hyaluronic Acid mixed with up to 4 of the other serums. Collagen with Shiitakie Mushrooms, which helps with the deterioration of collagen, helps with elasticity and is an anti-oxidant. Swiss Apple Vegan Stem Cells which has been proven to trigger the epidermal cells of the skin to begin self-renewing at a pace similar to that of early youth. Lumos Naturally Occurring Bio Algae which improves luminosity and decreases visibility of hyper pigmented areas to even out the skin tone. And Occulus Algae which will decrease vascular permeability to ameliorate eyeballs and dark circles.
How much does MicroNeedling cost?
Initial treatments are $300, we do offer packages and occasionally offer introductory specials, so please call for most current pricing.
