Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that uses a needling pen with 12 (33 gauge) medical grade needles to produce micro injuries which promote the skin’s own healing mechanisms to stimulate new collagen and elastin fibres. This procedure improves texture, tone and reduces the appearance of scarring and fine lines. Microneedling is safe for all skin tones and is the perfect option for those looking to improve their skin by strengthening it, rather than stripping away precious layers as with other procedures. 

This microneedling treatment is set apart from others in that body points are included to ensure the most holistic approach to beauty is being attained. LED light therapy is also included to help heal the skin and increase collagen induction. 

3-4 treatments 4-6 weeks apart are recommended, these can be worked in with the weekly facial acupuncture cycle of 10 to achieve stunning results, please ask at your appointment.
