In Sharp Focus: Why is Micro-Needling Trending and What Can it Do For You?

 Sign on the dotted line.

You may have heard the word, you may have feared the word, but I’m here to tell you to prepare to worship the word: Micro-needling.

Gwen does it. Jennifer does it. Naomi does it. You’re about to do it. Here’s why:

This life-changing facial treatment will put an end to chasing that hard-to-get, fleeting protein we all know as collagen. Micro-needling stimulates natural collagen and elastin in your papillary dermis and actually produces equal or better results than laser with a less-invasive method. I’m happy to offer this treatment to all my glow-getters and simplify all the information you need before diving into to your new, supple skin.

How does it work?

12 tiny sterile needles puncture the skin gently to create micro-channels. This process activates your body’s wound healing response and triggers growth factors to create new collagen and elastin.

Afraid of needles? You’re not alone, but these needles are ultra-fine miracle workers and I ensure that the road to amazing skin will be as smooth, comfortable, and relaxing as possible.

 The magic touch.

The magic touch.

Okay I can deal with the needles, but what does it really do?

The ultra combo of collagen + elastin = plumper, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. To put it simply - this is how Gwyneth gets her glow.

Typical results involve improved skin texture, the reduction of enlarged pores, improved skin elasticity, reduced fine lines, smoothing of scarring and an overall thicker, healthier skin.

One more reason to dive in: We don’t work with a heat based modality, making this treatment perfect for all skin types without risk of hyper-pigmentation which - let’s be honest - nobody has time for.

The final point (no pun-intended): The history of micro-needling in its many forms dates back to 1905 and Glow Therapy is bringing its sexy back to this decade a big way.

Just in time to fall back in love with your skin.
