Micro-needling is a fast and effective way to gain flawless skin with minimum down time. This amazing procedure works by inducing collagen formation under the epidermis. (Collagen gives your skin more tone and volume and resurfaces the superficial skin layer thus reducing fine lines and wrinkles, lightening abnormal pigmentation, and tightening sagging skin.)
To assure that the depth setting of up to 2mm is used for the treatment to yield best results, micro-needling should be performed under the supervision of a Board Certified Practitioner. As compared to most clinics who use an 11 or 12-needle tip, our clinic uses a sterile, disposable, 36-needle tip for maximum results. We also use pharmaceutical grade pure Hyaluronic Acid during the treatment. Included in our price is a bottle of Hyaluronic Acid for you to use at home to further enhance your results. Good Morning America aired a very informative, 3-minute video about Micro-needling that can be viewed here:
Micro-needling is effective for mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose or lax skin, skin texture/pore size and stretch marks without the side effects of chemical peels or laser burning treatments. It’s safe for use on all skin types and colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Micro-needling can treat sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other, much more expensive treatments. These delicate areas include the eye lids, the neck and the back of hands, décolleté, arms, legs, etc. Most people will begin to see results after the very first treatment, but the full results will materialize several weeks after the treatment. Immediately following the procedure, you will notice a healthy pink glow. Some heal completely in 24 hours, others are pink for a couple of days.
