Holistic Microneedling is an effective, natural alternative to injections and fillers. Microneedling involves the use of various devices equipped with many tiny needles that create tiny microinjuries in the skin. These microinjuries to the dermal layer trigger your body's own wound healing mechanisms resulting in tissue remodeling and healthy ratios of collagen and elastin. Microneedling is shown to increase collagen up to 400% after one session and increases absorption of serums by 1000%! The result: Your skin becomes firmer, more elastic, and scars and wrinkles smooth out over time. Microneedling is an excellent alternative to injections and surgery to address skin conditions such as: fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, other scarring, hyperpigmentation, lip lines, loose skin, and stretch marks. It is also effective for hair regrowth around the eyebrows, hairline, and scalp due to hair loss from alopecia or male pattern baldness.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to beauty focuses on graceful aging. Seeing an acupuncturist for your microneedling sessions assures that you have a professional who is trained to see your body holistically. In TCM, your face and skin contain a microcosmic map of your organ systems and bringing awareness to these connections results in longer lasting change and healing. 

Holistic Microneedling treatments are combined with gentle body acupuncture to regulate the nervous system, encourage the body’s natural immune response, and to improve circulation of qi and blood to the face for optimal results. The treatment includes your choice of serum: Plant Based Snow Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid (moisture, elasticity, scar healing) or Swiss Vegan Apple Stem Cells (fine lines, wrinkles, anti-aging) to further enhance skin rejuvenation during the absorption phase, along with an after care cooling spray to support skin regeneration and glow. This treatment also includes tailored LED Light Therapy which helps to further illuminate skin, boost collagen, and even skin tone. The Holistic Microneedling treatment includes face, neck and your of anywhere on the body where loose skin, sun damage, age spots, stretch marks, cellulite, or scarring (especially acne scars and depressed scars) is a concern.

For those who are nervous about the needles, nano needling is a noninvasive option that works well.  Holistic Nano-needling treatments are gentler than microneedling, as nano only punctures the first layer of the skin (epidermis) while micro-needling penetrates into the deep dermis. Both serve as a non-invasive transdermal serum delivery system using a pen-like device that oscillates a tip up and down to stimulate a skin reaction. They both induce cell turnover, serum infusion and provoke the healing process that results in skin transformation. If you are concerned about fine lines & wrinkles, swelling, dark pigmentation or sagging skin, then nano-needling is for you. It is also effective for hair regrowth around the eyebrows, hairline, and scalp due to hair loss from alopecia or male pattern baldness. If your skin care concerns include deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation or deep acne scars, then microneedling would be the treatment for that. While microneedling is recommended only once per month, Nano-needling can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin. Ten sessions is recommended for optimal results and results can last 3-5 years.
