How Does it Work?
Tiny acupuncture needles, placed in the shallow layers of the skin, cause "micro-traumas" in the skin. The body responds to these micro-traumas by activating the wound healing process, thus increasing the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in improved skin tone, elasticity, and lift.
