Smartxide DOT laser

Micro-Needling

An alternative; holistic, non-ablative therapy that stimulates collagen and repairs damaged skin.  Micro needling is a unique; FDA approved technique that can be used for various skin conditions. These include aging, scars, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin tone and texture. Chinese medicine has long known the anti-aging benefits of “needling”.

 

The micro-pen has eleven micro-needles that are used to penetrate the surface of the skin and this naturally stimulates collagen production. The small microscopic wounds activate your own healing cascade and result in the release of growth factors.  These growth factors stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts and platelets.  This process leads to new collagen, resulting in healthy, glowing, tighter skin!
This exciting procedure can be performed on almost all skin types with little to no down time! Major advantages include improved appearance of skin; it is non-ablative, cost effective and safe!

 

What is Micro-Needling?

 

Skin Needling, also called Micro-Needling therapy, and Collagen Induction Therapy is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a Micro-pen that uses  tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin.  The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles. 

 

What are the benefits?

 

Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin.  New collagen production reverses years of sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne scars and stretch marks.

 

What will I look like after the treatment?

 

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.  The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs.  Most patients heal completely in 24 hours. 

 

When will I see results?

 

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin.  Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks.  Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
