What is Microneedling?

Simply put, Micro-Needling is the insertion and oscillation of very fine short needles into the dermal layer of the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. The premise is simple – create a small wound and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Microneedling has been shown to increase collagen production by 3000%. Depending on the depth of oscillation, this can offer skin rejuvenation making the skin tighter and smoother. From the simple enhancement of serums and product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars and wrinkles. Treatments may be done monthly. 4 -6 treatments recommended with results shown to last 3 – 5years.

What is Nanoneedling?

Uses the same type of oscillating motion to treat the skin but the cartridge encompasses 81 silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. Nano-Needling only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15 mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime. This treatment can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin.
