How does it work?
The needles are inserted into the dermis, allowing a change in muscular blood flow locally. Positive micro trauma occurs which, in turn, results in a self-repairing of the skin which allows greater nutrient and oxygen delivery to the area. It triggers an increased hydration level and elasticity of the skin, also enhancing the volume of natural oil production, achieved through greater micro circulation.
What are the benefits?
This process treats, prevents and future proofs your skin from the inner layers outwards. (Anti-ageing) Over time, there is a greater productuon of elastin and collagen in the skin- leading to healthier, younger looking skin and a rejuvenated appearance.
