What is Micro-Needling?
This procedure involves using an oscillating pen to insert short fine needles into the dermis layer of the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. By creating a small wound, the skin is stimulated into producing both collagen and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of micro-needling, this procedure can enhance the absorption of product (by 3000%) and also clinically treat scars, wrinkles, age spots, skin texture, and pigment issues.
What is Nano-Needling?
This procedure also involves using an oscillating pen-like device to treat the skin, however the cartridge encompasses 81 silicone tips instead of needles. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. Nano-needling only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime. Great to do before a special event.
A free 30 minute consultation is required before booking the procedure to answer any questions you may have and also determine whether this procedure is right for you.
How long does each session take?
Both Micro and Nano-Needling take approximately 45 minutes. If you would like numbing lidocaine cream before the Micro-Needling treatment then the procedure will take approximately 60 minutes.
What products are used during the procedure?
Each session includes infusion of hyaluronic acid, apple stem cell serum, an aloe vera mask, and Celluma LED Light Therapy. For age spots and under eye puffiness two other serums can be incorporated (Occulus and Lumos).
How often can you do Micro/Nano-Needling?
Micro-needling is most effective when performed once a month for 4-8 sessions. Maintenance session can be performed once every 3-4 months thereafter.
Nano-needling can be performed weekly and is great in-between micro-needling sessions or if you have an event to get ready for.
Micro-needling/Nano-needling cannot be performed in these situations:
