Rejuvenate, plump and smooth your skin with MicroNeedling. MicroNeedling is the newest trend in the beauty industry. We recommend enhancing this procedure with PRP (platelet rich plasma). Which is often called the vampire facial.
MicroNeedling is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of skin conditions in the facial region, including:
⦁ Fine lines and wrinkles
⦁ Overly large pores
⦁ Stretch marks
⦁ Acne scars
In addition, your microneedling treatment will improve your skin’s texture, tone, and color.
MicroNeedling is performed using a pen-sized device containing about 12 small, sterile needles. Our nurse/medical aesthetician will use the microNeedling device to create a series of tiny incisions into your skin at varying depths based on your unique skin condition and aesthetic goals. These incisions will stimulate collagen production and create thousands of micro-channels in your skin which allow for better penetration and diffusion of anti-aging serums and creams.
As your skin heals from the minor punctures created by the microneedling device, it will eliminate many of the common signs of ageing. As a result, you will experience a more youthful and revitalized skin appearance.
