Medical Skin Needling
The holy grail of youthful and healthy skin! Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is the most natural, safe, non-surgical procedure of dermal rejuvenation that forces the body to grow its own new collagen. The treatment involves a device which makes thousands of micro channels into the skin to produce a controlled injury. The healing response triggers the body to fill in these micro channels with new healthier, cleaner and tighter cells. The new skin growth results in improved firmness, texture, finer pores, less pigmentation and improved hydration. Very effective for preventing the signs of aging, stretch marks, sun spots, acne pitted scars and surgical scars, pigmentation irregularities, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. We use a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment which makes the procedure extremely comfortable. After the procedure most people have a sun-burned appearance for about 12-24 hours before the skin appears normal again. Mineral makeup can be applied 12 hours after the needling. This treatment is cumulative and requires patience to see a major difference; new healthy collagen growth will take approximately 6-8 weeks. For best results a series of sessions is recommended with treatments spaced every 4-6 weeks. The face is the most commonly treated area however any area of the body can benefit. Mark my words - This is the true fountain of youth!
