AcuMicro-Needle: Collagen Induction Therapy
The AcuMicro-Needle treatment allows for controlled induction of growth factor serums or hyaluronic acid into the skin’s self-repair process by creating micro-injuries in the skin. These injuries stimulate new collagen production, while not posing the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin. The treatment is performed in a safe and precise manner with a sterile needle head and are usually completed in 30-60 minutes.
