HOW DOES
MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
  • Acu-microneedling is done with a top of the line premium class 2 medical device that oscillates vs. vibrating/cheaper devices.
  • Creates micro-channels in the skin. When those channels are created, the skin's own repair response is to start increasing blood flow and to produce collagen and elastin to heal this "injury". This, in turn, makes your skin tighter and smoother skin.
  • Unlike microdermabrasion, which removes layers of skin, micro needling creates channels in the skin for products to be absorbed and collagen/elastin to be produced.
  • Simply put, micro-needling is the insertion of very fine, thin needles into the skin for the purpose of skin rejuvenation.
