Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure. This procedure removes skin debris, imperfections, blemishes, wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation on the skin. When accompany with skin products that penetrate through top skin layer that reach the dermis level, it will help to replenish natural nutrients, restore cell activity, and promote skin health.

Skin Needling is a procedure used to correct
Lines and wrinkles
Thin, Crepey skin
The procedure uses multiple needles < 0.25mm in diameter, to pierce the skin and create tiny injuries deep in the skin. A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure to prevent pain and discomfort.
The dermal injuries cause the skin to repair itself by stimulating new collagen formation. Skin Needling perforates and softens fibrous scar tissue which enables the deposition of new collagen. New collagen will fill depressed scars and wrinkles from the bottom up lifting skin depressions so they are level with the surrounding skin. This process takes 2-3 months to produce visible results and can also help thicken thin, crepey skin.
Each skin responds differently and may require multiple treatments at 6-8 week intervals, dependent on the initial condition being treated, and the desired outcome. This time frame allows us to see the maximum new collagen deposition and to assess the success of the treatment.
Immediately after treatment patients usually experience mild to moderate redness and sensitivity in the treated area lasting 12 to 48 hours.
Swelling and bruising may occur for 2-3 days
Dry and tight skin
Tiny crusted areas occur all over that feel slightly rough and give a tanned appearance
