As microneedling is both safe and effective, it has become one of the most popular skin rejuvenation and anti-aging procedures. As we age, our body loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year. To combat this, microneedling stimulates new healthy collagen and elastic tissue production, which then draws hyaluronic acid into the area. Microneedling helps with scar removal, skin tone, texture, discoloration, acne scars, stretch marks and enlarged pores.
Traditional microneedling uses very fine needles on a handheld “pen” device, to create channels in the skin. These punctures enhance absorption of serums applied to the skin. The glide that allows the “pen” to move smoothly over the skin is usually hyaluronic acid. Another option is to use your body’s own blood products or plasma as a glide which results in faster and better healing and collagen formation.MORE
A more advanced collagen induction method is RF-microneedling. This combines microneedling with radiofrquency energy to warm the deep collagen tissue. Hence giving targeted stimulation while protecting the surface layers of the skin. This state-of-the-art technology provides an option to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries or lasers. The best part about RF-microneedling is that your body does all the work of new collagen production. Therefore the results are long-lasting. MORE
Chemical peels are used to treat scarring, skin discoloration, acne, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.
Thgere are three major classes of chemical peels: superficial, medium and deep. As superficial peels penetrate the topmost layer of the skin, they are great for acne, dark spots and oily skin. Medium depth peels treat both active acne and scarring. They get deeper into the skin. Deep peels are the most aggressive, and are mainly for scar treatment, lines and wrinkling. Although the deeps peels produce more dramatic results, they are not suitable for darker skin types. MORE
