Skincare & Nutritional Consultation
The services we offer are not appropriate for everyone. Certain health conditions are contraindicated for Microneedling and Microcurrent treatment. In addition each person’s response to these treatments are highly dependent on their nutritional status and overall health. For these reasons, we recommend (but don’t require) that clients start with a Skincare & Nutritional consultation. We believe that clients who are on the correct nutritional supplements and/or herbal therapy, see a more significant response to the treatments that we provide. After all, your body needs the appropriate raw materials to heal the skin, and rebuild collagen and elastin. We can also design a skincare regimen for you based on K-Beauty principles. Korean Beauty Rituals embody the wisdom of East Asian Medicine together with cutting edge science. Korean skincare products and philosophy are ten years’ ahead of everyone else.
Microneedling, aka Collagen Induction Therapy, was invented in China thousands of years ago when women in the Emperor’s court used rolling needle devices to rejuvenate their skin. Some people think this is the origin of acupuncture! Today we have electric needle pens which are even more effective. Microneedling can legally be performed only by MD’s, Nurse Practitioners and Licensed Acupuncturists.
Each microneedling treatment includes–at no extra charge–an AnteAge Stem Cell Aftercare Kit which is key to effective results. You would pay $110 for this aftercare kit at a local medi-spa. We also include Celluma LED light therapy at no additional cost. This combination of microneedling, the most effective stem cell product on the market, and LED light therapy makes our microneedling service light years ahead of our competition. Treatments are performed once a month to give the skin time to respond to the treatment–even a month later your skin is still producing new collagen according to studies.
Research shows 3-6 microneedling sessions one month apart produces optimal results and the effects last 2-3 years. Many patients choose to schedule maintenance sessions twice a year, after the initial course of treatment. Microneedling creates minor tears and stimulates the skin to repair itself. It increases protein, collagen, and elastic production and causes the body to produce “youthening” substances. It also creates channels to the dermis, so that our AnteAge Stem Cells can do their magic. We also offer unique Chinese Herb serums, to brighten the face, reduce age spots and melasma, improve circulation, thicken thin skin, and reduce eye bags and puffiness
Microneedling isn’t for everyone–certain health/skin conditions are contraindicated. Results are dependent on your nutritional status–you cannot build collagen without the right nutrition. We recommend everyone start with a Skincare/Nutritional Consulation so we can get you on the right supplement program and skincare regimen for several weeks prior to microneedling.
Age Defying Microcurrent Facial
Microcurrent is a low level of electricity that mirrors the body‘s own natural electrical currents, triggering chemical reactions at a cellular level to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, improve circulation, and re-educate the muscles of the face. The result is immediate firming, smoothing, and re-hydration of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microcurrent lifts, sculpts and tightens with no downtime.
- 500% increase in cellular energy (ATP) leading to increased muscular tone
- 12% increase in 20 days in natural collagen production to increase hydration and fullness
- 48% increase in 20 days in natural elastin production
- 39% increase in 20 days in blood circulation
There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the microcurrent facial treatment. Probes are used to physically move the muscle into the desired position to perform muscle re-education. The process of lengthening and shortening muscles in a series re-trains the muscles to maintain this new contour.
In order to re-educate the muscles, it is crucial tto receive a series of treatments. Once a series is completed, the results can be maintained by coming in every 4-6 weeks for maintenance treatments. Additionally, a series can be repeated every few years. If the full series of treatments is completed and maintenance sessions are continued, results should last 3-4 years.
- Diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved muscle tone in face and neck
- Improved circulation, Lymphatic drainage
- Lifting of jowls and eyebrows
- Product penetration
- Smoother, firmer skin with improved elasticity
- Hydrated and revitalized skin
Celluma LED Light Therapy
LED Low-level Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for wrinkles, acne, hair restoration, pain relief, wound healing and overall health.
When it comes to using LED light therapy, whether it’s blue light therapy for acne, red light therapy for wrinkles and anti-aging issues, or near-infrared light therapy for pain,we recommend 2-3 treatments per week. It’s a bit like going to the gym, if you join but don’t go, then you will not experience any of the many benefits. Just like working out and exercising, the benefits of LED light therapy are cumulative.
The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation
Originally developed by NASA engineers for pain management and injury treatment on space missions, light therapy is used today to treat a variety of pain coniditions and wound healing, Infrared (IR) therapy — or “low-level light” therapy — uses specific, proven wavelengths to stimulate a natural response in human tissue that increases circulation, accelerates tissue repair, eases muscle pain, relieves joint stiffness, and enhances overall cell performance on a microscopic level. Infrared (IR) light therapy works by boosting cellular energy to encourage and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.
AcuGlow Facial Cupping and Gua Sha
