WHY DO MICRONEEDLING?
If you have thick scars anywhere on the body, cellulitis, age spots, or wrinkles, this is an amazing and ALL natural treatment. In fact, it’s the only treatment for these conditions that benefits your WHOLE body!
MicroNeedling is recommended once a month and can be used in conjunction with facial rejuvenation needles for best effects to smooth out wrinkles, age spots, and revitalize the skin for a youthful glow.

We start with a cleanse and a massage with numbing cream. A few body acupuncture points are inserted to calm the mind, body, and spirit. The microneedling itself generally takes around 10-15 minutes, and then we apply a stem cell serum and hyaluronic serum and our hemp-based moisturizer.
Treatments are fast (30-45 mins), gentle and results are research proven to last 3-5 years! The best part – it is all natural!
It can be an intense sensation. Some describe it as stimulating, others might feel more discomfort. Fortunately, it’s a fast process and afterwards your skin typically feels wonderfully alive, bright and invigorated. The first session may feel the strangest because it’s completely new.
***On rare occasions, bruising and bleeding may occur.
We recommend no more than one treatment per month, because skin cellular turnover and the healing cycle takes that long. It generally takes four to six treatments to get great results, and then you can taper down to every 5 -6 month maintenance treatments.
This treatment can greatly benefit from adding Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture. Cosmetic Acupuncture targets the underlying musculature, by stimulating ’motor points’ within muscles, causing them to remember how to fire, lift and firm. Facial rejuvenation also works on treating internal imbalances that contribute to how our skin looks. Microneedling, on the other hand, treats the uppermost layer of the skin, triggering that healing response for a wonderful regenerative and collagen-producing action all over the face and neck.
Your skin can look red for a few hours and you should stay out of the sun, not put on makeup, and not sweat too much for the rest of the day. It is rare but bruising may occur. Wear sunscreen to protect the skin and avoid extreme elements like being out in cold, windy weather for a few days.
Microneedling is rapidly gaining in popularity in the U.S. Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. It’s been featured in articles in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, on the Today Show, The Rachael Ray show, and countless blogs. Modern technology and an understanding of how to prompt a natural healing response in the skin is improving. Studies have favorably compared the benefits of microneedling to that of getting fractional laser work. More and more people are demanding natural and less invasive alternatives to anti-aging treatments that not only make the skin Iook good, but that make the skin and person healthier overall.
