What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-Needling is the insertion of exceptionally fine short needles into the skin for the purpose of facial and skin rejuvenation. The premise is simple – create a small wound and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, this can offer the simple enhancement of product absorption, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, to the clinical treatment of scars and acne.  In between micro-needling sessions you can also experience Energy-Light facial rejuvenation (ELR).  I have been using this needless method of cosmetic acupuncture for several years. Acupuncture points are stimulated on the face that have a direct connection to your organs and glands.  I am sure you will love the results.


Treatments generally are 30 minutes.  It can be combined with our Energy-Light Facial Rejuvenation™ (ELR) for a complete therapeutic treatment that benefits the whole body, not only the skin and face.  The ELR is about 45 minutes to one hour session.

The Micro-Needle Pen head

A sterile pin head with fine short needles is used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen.

Why Micro-Needling?

This is a natural way to rejuvenate the collagen (protein) in the skin without painful surgery, or toxic injections into your skin. It is also known as skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).  The principle behind Micro and Nano-Needling Therapy is to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin, thereby reducing wrinkles, scars and improving skin texture. It also encourages
absorption of your favorite topical serum by 2000%!  A sterile pin head with fine short needles is used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin, which stimulate your own body to produce new collagen. These channels also improve the penetration of serums such as Vitamins C , E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Apple-Stem-Cells about 1000 times. Vitamins C, E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Apple-stem-cells stimulate skin renewal, thereby, making the skin appear fresher and younger.  In our clinic we use professional micro-needling pens that allow us to control the depth, and speed of the device. The professional pen is advanced, and it provides greater outcomes with less adverse reactions than a dermal roller. The pen head oscillates up and down at a great speed, which reduces the sensitivity of the skin. It provides smoother penetration without scratching or injuring the epidermis.
