Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure, creating healthy, glowing skin in a similar way to acupuncture, using your body’s natural healing action.
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Microneedling stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin, which improves skin tone, texture, and reduces scars and stretch marks. We use a custom Chinese herbal serum made of apple stem cells with our treatments, to enhance hydration and revitalize your skin cells.
How It Works
We use a medical device called an MD Needle pen. It works in a very similar manner to acupuncture, using your body’s own healing reaction to stimulate blood supply and produce collagen and elastin. This works to make your skin tighter, smoother, and glowing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will it hurt?
A: No! This is not like microneedling at the dermatologist. We are very gentle. Just like Acupuncture, Microneedling uses an incredibly fine needle. It barely penetrates the skin, at only 0.5mm deep. You may experience some redness after a treatment, but it is usually gone and you can return to your regular skincare routine within a day.
Q: What herbal serums do you use?
A: We use a custom apple stem cell serum with our treatments to boost collagen and elastin production, increase hydration, and to enhance your skin’s natural glow. Stem cell serums are natural, pure, and without preservatives. Apple stem cells are among the most potent and sought-after extracts, and have been combined with other effective and natural compounds, such as fatty acids and rosehip seed oil (which is high in antioxidants such as vitamins A and E), to create optimum results. Unlike topical skin treatments, microneedling enhances the absorption and effectiveness of serums 3,000%!
Q: How long does it take?
A: Our treatments last 45-60 minutes. We suggest treatment only once a month (every 4-6 weeks), with optimal results after 4-6 treatments. We provide full aftercare instructions to maximize results.
