BodyLase micro-needling

Looking for a way to improve your wrinkles and fine lines without any down time? Micro-needling is a quick and virtually painless procedure that will give you smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin.

Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) induces collagen production and actually strengthens the epidermis. The expert technician uses a wand that contains very fine needles. When passed over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This procedure has no major side effects and beautiful results are noticeable in a short period of time.

The major benefits of Micro-needling include:

Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines

The loss of elastin and collagen cause thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles. Micro-needling stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. You’ll have younger looking skin with no downtime. Your pocketbook will like it too – this procedure is much less expensive than laser and light treatments.

Improves Scars

Micro-needling is proven to diminish the look of surgery and acne scars. This procedure breaks down old tissue and triggers the production of new elastin and collagen for healthier skin.

Reduces Appearance of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are extremely difficult to treat and very few cosmetic treatments can improve their appearance. Micro-needling, however, has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially when combined with other treatments such as fraxel and other laser treatments.

Prevents Signs of Aging

Micro-needling effectively and powerfully stops the early signs of aging as well as preventing new wrinkles and fine lines from occurring. When combined with consistent use of corrective antioxidant serums, this procedure aids in brightening your skin that results in a youthful glow. You can’t get that from home treatments or other cosmetic products!
