Microneedling is a 2,000 year old time tested treatment originating in ancient China. Emperors who wanted to live forever used this technique to remain youthful. Microneedling is a rejuvenating combination of ancient knowledge and modern technology.
Adina uses AcuMicro, a top of the line premium Class 2 medical device. AcuMicro is currently only available to M.D.'s, Nurses and Licensed Acupuncturists in the state of California.
Microneedling works by creating micro sized holes, or channels, in the skin. The body responds naturally by producing collagen and elastin to heal the area tightening and smoothing the skin.
Nanoneedling is similar to microneedling, however it is more superficial. Nanoneedling is a gentle treatment that can be done on the face and body and is especially good on sensitive areas like under the eyes, the nose, and around the lips.
The addition of all natural hyaluronic acid increases absorption up to 3000% hydrating the skin.
MICRONEEDLING IMPROVES AND TREATS:
Many people see results after only one treatment. However, for optimal results Adina recommends a minimum of 3-6 treatments spaced out every 4-6 weeks. For hair growth stimulation treatment is recommended every 2 weeks for 6 weeks.
Nanoneedling can be done up to 3 times per week on it's own. For optimal results Adina recommends 1-3 nanoneedling treatments between microneedling.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Allow up to one hour for treatment.
Your treatment begins with a 15-20 minute relaxation and face or body prep. Enjoy the therapeutic and comforting benefits of the Amethyst BioMat while activating the limbic system of your brain with relaxation aromatherapy. Although this treatment is relatively painless, a topical numbing cream can be applied for a more comfortable experience. Clients working on their face and scalp also enjoy the benefits of LED Light Therapy.
Next, we begin the microneedling treatment. This can take up to 30 minutes depending on the area we are treating. Hyaluronic acid is used to improve the results of the treatment and hydrate the skin.
Finally, we complete the treatment by applying a soothing aloe vera mask.
Clients may add on a facial massage applying specially formulated TCM serums for faster results and a better experience. Serums can also be purchased separately.
1. You will be red 8-12 hours, pure aloe vera gel can help reduce redness
2. No exercise today- sweat can irritate and/or sting the face
3. Stay out of the sun- do not go in direct sun on the day you receive your treatment. Adina recommends using a mineral sunscreen one week after microneedling.
4. No make up on the day of your session
5. Use hyaluronic acid- use when you feel dry and before you go to bed. You may also use your personalized serum if you purchased one.
6. Do not use facial soap on the day of your session- wash your face with cool to warm water
7. Back to your normal facial routine 24 hours after treatment. Facial products have a much higher absorption rate the week after micro-needling.
It typically takes 2 weeks to fully see results from the treatment. You must wait 1 month before doing another Microneedling treatment. However, Nano treatments may be done weekly to increase/speed up the results.
This non invasive gentle facial uses micro-current and light therapy to stimulate collagen and elastin, and tone and strengthen facial muscles. Micro-current works on the cellular level to increase blood circulation and decrease cellular waste and toxins. Body acupuncture is a wonderful addition to this treatment and is recommended for optimal results.
Results are often seen and felt with just one treatment. However, for optimal results and maximum collagen and elastin production, Adina recommends 10 treatments every 1-2 weeks. Micro-current Rejuvenation Facials are a great addition to micro-current treatments.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Every facial is done on the Ameythist BioMat. If you choose, acupuncture needles are placed on the body. Points are chosen to enhance the treatment and address underlying issues. Micro-current is applied to the facial muscles and acupuncture points. Specific areas are also addressed. Midway through your treatment we pause and apply a rejuvenating mask and/or LED light therapy. The treatment is concluding by hydrating the skin and sealing the treatment with specialized micro-current wands.
There is no "down" time after this treatment. You may continue with your regular skin care routine.
