Infusions & Needling:
Nanoneedle-based facials is an effective method used to stimulate collagen and maximize product infusion. The nanoneedle is a powerful handheld device with needles that are thinner than a human hair which are used to create mini, superficial channels in the upper most layer of the skin.
Nanoneedle-based facials is an effective method used to stimulate collagen and maximize product infusion. The nanoneedle is a powerful handheld device with needles that are thinner than a human hair which are used to create mini, superficial channels in the upper most layer of the skin. These channels help to optimize the delivery of active skincare ingredients with up to 97% product absorption. The microchannels created by the nanoneedle tricks the skin into repairing itself thereby creating “new collagen”. Nanoneedling is often used to combat fine lines, wrinkles, mild acne scars, mild discoloration, and other skin blemishes. Monthly maintenance is highly recommended.
The HydraPen is a pen-like device with a plastic handle, cartridge, and an applicator tip where the cartridge serves as a reservoir for serums while the nanoneedle in the applicator allows for direct infusion of the serum into the upper layers of the epidermis. The HydraPen is used as a fractional mesotherapy treatment to renew the skin by combining micro-needling with automatic infusion or product injection. This is a pain free method for immediate skin rejuvenation that leaves the skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. Like nanoneedling, the HydraPen microinfusion facial is an effective monthly treatment to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Aqua Gold Microinfusion
Like the HydraPen, the Aqua Gold microinfuser has a reservoir that is used to hold your serum of choice. The applicator houses 20 tiny needles that can deliver product directly into the skin at a depth of 600 microns. It uses small gold-plated needles that are channeled along the entire shaft of each needle which helps to optimize skin infusion. Being that the needles are smaller than a human hair, the treatment itself is relatively painless. Popular products used in conjunction with the Aqua Gold microinfusion treatment include PRP (aka protein-rich-plasma), B-12, growth factors, stem cells, hyaluronic acid, and neurotoxins such as Botox. Recommended treatment frequency is every 3-4 months.
Microneedling is a type of collagen induction therapy (CIT) where a cluster of small needles are attached to a motorized handheld device that moves the needles up and down at a high rate of speed. The microneedles penetrate the skin creating numerous small channels that cause the skin to increase cell turnover and cellular renewal factor. This process encourages collagen production. This treatment may help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scars, finelines, blemishes, wrinkles, and stretch marks. The treatment results in firmer skin and a more even texture. Recommended treatment is at least 3 sessions done every 4-6 weeks or until clients reach their desired results. Thereafter, once or twice a year will help to maintain your results. This treatment is most often used on the face.
Microneedling with Protein Rich Plasma (PRP)
Microneedling with Protein Rich Plasma (PRP) uses the same technology of microneedling combined with rich proteins and growth factors present in the blood. The process involves having blood drawn from your body much the same way blood is taken as a sample for laboratory type studies. The blood sample is spun in a centrifuge at high velocity to help separate the plasma from the larger red blood cells. The PRP is infused into the microchannels created by the microneedling process which enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The growth factors present in PRP increase collagen, elastin, and tissue rejuvenation. Recommended every 30 days until treatment is complete.

Subcision is an incisionless surgical technique that can be used to improve the appearance of depressed scars and some wrinkles. Once the skin has been adequately numbed, the subcision procedure uses a larger needle or cannula that is inserted directly beneath the scar. The needle or cannula is then used to help release fibrous tissue that connects the scar to the tissue beneath it. Subcisions can be performed as an add-on or as a stand alone treatment. Larger treatment areas may require more than a single office visit.
PRP Dark Circle Treatment
The PRP dark circle treatment can be done as a stand-alone treatment or done as an add-on to the microneedling with PRP treatment. Using both a cannula and very tiny needles, PRP is injected at several different levels of the tissues of the area where dark circles have formed. The controlled injury caused by the direct injections triggers the healing cascade which helps to rid the area of debris that may be causing the appearance of dark circles and builds more under eye tissue. The increase in tissue width also increases the distance between the source of darkness and the visible surface of the skin under the eye thereby improving the overall appearance of under eye dark circles. For the best results, it’s suggested to do a series of 3-4 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks with maintenance of 4-6 months thereafter.
Cryo for skin tags
Using a pen-like handpiece outfitted with a CO2 cartridge or super cold liquid nitrogen, the skin tag is frozen. The skin tag will typically become dark and scab-like prior to falling off in about 7 to 14 days. Freezing can leave mild blisters that typically fade away very quickly. This procedure can be done on any part of the body, as needed.
Plasma for skin tags
Plasma emits a tiny electrical arc when it is placed in close proximity to the skin. The plasma arc vaporizes the skin allowing lesions like skin tags and warts to be removed. This procedure can be done on any part of the body, as needed.
Plasma skin tightening
Skin is exposed to the plasma energy and it turns from a solid form to a gas and it evaporates the excess tissue without the application of excess heat. The treatment is very superficial and helps to eliminate wrinkles and saggy skin through skin regeneration and collagen production. This procedure can be done on any part of the body, as needed.
