Transform your skin!
Collagen induction therapy starts by using Micro-acupuncture to create micro-wounds in the dermis. These channels allow Hyaluronic Acid to be driven deep into the skin. This process increases the skins ability to utilize the nutrients by up to 3000%. The micro-wound trigger the body to produce new collagen and elastin. The results are improved skin texture and a reduced appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars.
What is Micro-Acupuncture?
Micro-acupuncture treatment uses a handheld needle pen to create controlled depth micro-injuries to the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural repair process to produce collagen and elastin.
