Skin Needling (New)

This technique is sometimes referred to as dry tattooing, and the concept of this treatment is the same as microneedling, which is collagen induction therapy. What is special about this treatment is that we can select the different configurations, usually smaller, based on the size and types of scars; such as deep wrinkles, ice pick scars, surgical scars, stitch scars, and stretch marks.

This can be an add on to micro-needling or stand-alone. Price varies.

Tip: Add an LED Light Therapy for the best results.

* Consultation is mandatory before booking this session. Price and duration vary depending on the treatment location and size.

Microneedling

Microneedling improves your skin’s glow, coloring, and texture by reducing the appearance of scars and improving skin mobility. Our top-of-the-line acclaimed treatment uses the Eclipse MicroPen and the  AnteAGE microneedling solution, with powerful ingredients like bone marrow-derived growth factors and cytokines, to remove scars. Microneedling improves the appearance of scars by creating wounds that break up scar tissue and stimulate collagen regrowth.

*This treatment includes a 15 minutes LED Light Therapy for greater results.

Tip: Add another 15 minutes LED Light Therapy for the best results.
Tip: Schedule LED Light Therapy in the following days.

* Consultation is mandatory before booking this session. Price and duration vary depending on the treatment location and size.

LED Light Therapy

Our award-winning LED light therapy uses non-invasive, non-UV, low-level light to reduce oxidative stress, increase circulation, improve the production of collagen and elastin, stimulate cellular energy production, accelerate tissue repair, and improve skin texture and clarity.

You can purchase a package for $500+. For best results, get treatment 2-3 times a week for 8-12 weeks. You can also add this to microneedling and/or skin needling sessions.

(Please don’t get confused with keloid scars and hypertrophic scars. They are completely different types of scars.) This is the reason that scar reduction requires in-clinic consultation. If you have a scar you wanted to get rid of, please contact us first to see if this is right for you.
