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 20 minute relaxation that includes face or body prep and personalized LED Light Therapy. 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.
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.

A combination of Moving Cupping, Red LED Light Therapy and Infrared Heat is used to massage and shape the skin and its underlying structures. The skin and the subcutaneous fat cell layer are stimulated and mobilized increasing circulation and moving qi, or vital energy. Body Sculpting works to improve skin firmness and reduce cellulite . An increase in blood, oxygen, and available nutrients stimulates the body’s fat elimination processes and the fat cells begin to shrink. The connective tissue walls are gently stretched, which encourages the fibrous tissue cells to produce better quality collagen and elastin, ultimately, toning and firming the body.
For significant change, a program of 6 once weekly sessions is recommended. Single sessions are also available.
Due to time constraints, only one area of the body may be treated per session. For example, the thighs are considered one area.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Allow up to an hour and a half for each session.
Each session takes place on the Amethyst Biomat. The infrared heat from the Biomat aids in moving fat and detoxifying the body. Aromatherapy and Ear Seeds are used to relax and calm the mind. Next, we target your area of concern with 20 minutes of Red LED Light Therapy. This opens the cell membranes allowing fat to dump into the interstitial areas and be eliminated naturally. Next, tightening anti-cellulite cream is applied to the area, followed by Moving Cupping. Moving Cupping increases circulation and moves stagnant qi. Your session concludes with a 30 minute session in our Infrared Sauna. The Infrared Sauna heats your core temperature to induce sweating and increase blood flow and heart rate, similar to moderate exercise.
There is no "down" time after this treatment. Hydration helps us eliminate toxins and is an extremely important aspect to this treatment. It is highly recommended you drink a minimum of at least 16oz of water after your treatment and eat a diet rich in fiber or use a fiber supplement. Gastro-Fiber by Standard Process is included in each 6 session program and can be purchased separately with individual sessions.
