How does it work?
Tiny needles are gently inserted into the face and body at specific points creating beneficial micro-traumas. This stimulates the body to heal while increasing circulation, collagen, and elastin production. It also works to course the body's energy and eliminate points of stagnation. The whole process is anti-inflammatory and works to treat both the mind and body. Each point is specifically chosen to fit one's individual needs and goals.
What are the side effects?
Side effects include improved production of elastin and collagen, improved muscle tone, dermal contraction and skin tone. It reduces puffiness, age spots, and acne. It works to balance hormones, tighten pores, and lift eyelids, brows, and jowls. It decreases stress, improves sleep, and takes years off the face, body, and soul.
How often are the treatments and how long do results last?
We recommend starting with a minimum of 10 sessions for best results. Depending on one's goals, more sessions may be necessary. Results can last 5 - 10 years with monthly or quarterly maintenance sessions.
