Micro-Needling


Micro-Needling

Micro-needling is a new treatment that uses a device with multiple sterile needle tips to make almost invisible micro-perforations in the upper layers of the skin.

Micro-needling causes the skin to release growth factors and cytokines that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastic fibers.

Micro-needling also significantly increases the penetration of topically applied medications.

To further enhance your results, at the time of your treatment we apply a very pure and highly concentrated growth factor serum derived from human stem cells. We recommend a similar serum for home use as well.

Micro-Needling is effective treatment for:

  • Wrinkles and lax skin
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Rosacea
  • Hair Restoration
  • Hyperpigmentation

Micro-needling treatments can be done alone or in combination with facial filler injections for truly outstanding results:
