WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling (aka Collagen Induction Therapy) is a natural, holistic technique that originated in China.   It is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive option to build collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even skin tone. It is the #1 non-toxic alternative to fillers and injections and is rapidly gaining popularity among celebrities and skin-care professionals.  A sterile applicator tip containing 12 very fine, short needles is attached to an automated pen which glides over the skin creating little micro-channels.  This increases collagen and elastin production and allows for the absorption of your skin-care products up to 3000%!  Hyaluronic Acid and a custom combination of Chinese Herbal Therapies and Apple Stem Cells are applied during the treatment to further enhance skin rejuvenation during the absorption phase.  Specially crafted TCM serums means faster result with a better experience.  The microneedling, or nanoneedling, treatment is followed by a 30 minute Celluma LED Red Light Therapy session which aims to further illuminate skin, boost collagen, even skin tone, and speed up the healing process.  Results continue to improve up to six months after the last treatment.  Best results are seen with at least 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.  It's a safe alternative to common resurfacing tools like lasers with fewer side-effects and less downtime.
