How the treatment is performed?
Micro Needling is a non-invasive treatment. The device uses medical grade stainless steel needles that vertically pierce the skin, working down to the dermis, leaving the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, intact. The electronic device uses a powerful motor allowing the needles to move quickly in and out of the skin. This creates micro channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production while also dramatically increasing the bioavailability of topical treatments and further enhancing their absorption.
