This anti-aging technique uses thread-like needles in the face to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The needles create a microtrauma in the skin, improving circulation and promoting skin cell regeneration.

The one hour treatment begins with a consultation so Claudia can determine your main areas of concern with your skin.
You will be screened to ensure that the treatment is appropriate for you.
Contraindications include: pregnancy, severe migraines, botox in the last 3 months, laser resurfacing/microdermabrasion in the last 2 weeks.
There is a small risk of mild bruising from the treatments. An oral homeopathic remedy and topical cream will be administered to reduce this risk.
Step 1 Cleanse- The face is cleansed free of oils and/or makeup.
Step 2 Tone- A toner is applied to prepare your skin before needling.
Step 3 Body Needles- 4 needles are inserted in the body to ground the body before facial needling.
Step 4 Facial Needles- Around 15-30 needles are inserted in the face. As we progress through the treatments, slightly deeper needling may be used to help lift sagging skin.
Step 5 Relax- The needles are left in for 20 minutes while you relax.
Step 6 Moisturizer- After the needles are removed, a moisturizer is applied with a facial massage.

Though your skin will be rejuvenated after one treatment, most individuals will not notice improvement in sagging or wrinkles until after 4-6 treatments. For those aged 50+ or smokers, significant difference may not be seen until 7-8 treatments. A full series of 10 treatments on a weekly basis is recommended for optimal results.
Most individuals who complete the series report skin quality has improved, skin feels tighter and has a lift, prominent wrinkles appear diminished and pigmentation has lessened.
Results can maintain for a couple years dependant on age and lifestyle, however completing another series a year later is recommended for those wanting to maintain results.
