We have been offering the microneedling procedure to our patients for over three years. If you have been thinking about having microneedling done, now is the perfect time to come in and take advantage of the best price we have ever offered. It is being described by many as the least invasive, most effective skin rejuvenation procedure.
The single most aging thing that happens to our skin is the gradual loss of collagen and elastin. Micro-needling triggers the skin’s wound-responses causing it to produce new collagen and elastin and making the skin look and feel younger and firmer. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and treats scars, wrinkles, brown spots, large pores and aging skin. In can also be used to treat stretch marks in the other areas of the body. It is minimally invasive, requires minimal down time.
During the procedure, we use a pen-like tool to make small pricks in the skin. In our clinic, we use a disposable 36-pin tip (compared to the 11 or 12-pin tips used in other clinics). This gives more complete coverage and a better treatment.
Celebrities are offered all the best skin care advice and treatments…so it makes sense to keep an eye on what they are doing. Many of the top stars are loving this procedure: https://tinyurl.com/y7444l2j8
At the Cannes Film Festival, Angelina Jolie caused such a sensation with her youthful appearance that her preference for micro-needling was covered by the Los Angeles Times. Jennifer Aniston said, “I do micro-needling! I just learned about it a couple months ago from a facialist in New York. It allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in”. Aniston is referring to the fact that microneedling provides a short window of opportunity that allows post-treatment products to travel down the fresh channels in the skin reaching the important parts at concentrations that aren’t otherwise possible. These channels allow a momentary increase in permeability that is hundreds of times more viable than the normal degree that topical products can penetrate the skin. This is why we use pure pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid during the treatment not just vitamins or other cheaper serums.
