What is microneedling?
Microneedling helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone, minimizes large pores, firms skin, and fades scars.
It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure performed by a certified Licensed Acupuncturist that involves the use of a medical grade pen with fine needles.
The controlled depth and precision creates channels through the skin, which gives custom herbal topicals a pathway to improve blood supply and produce new collagen and elastin.
How does it differ from other treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion?
Following the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the top layer of skin is left intact to protect the body's defensive Qi. Custom herbal formulas are topically applied during and after treatment as well to aid in the regeneration of new cells.
What can I expect during my session?
A holistic microneedling session includes traditional whole-body acupuncture to amplify results by stimulating renewal both topically and internally.
I begin by applying organic hyaluronic acid serums custom made with plant stem cells and potent extracts of traditional herbal ingredients based on your specific needs. Next, the pen is used to achieve firmer, brighter, more even skin tone. This feels like a light scraping across the skin.
While results can be seen after one session, in order to achieve full benefits we recommend a series of 4-6 treatments scheduled one month apart. After the initial series, most patients enjoy microneedling seasonally to revive results.
