Dermal Needling Therapy
Dermal needling is a cornerstone technique that Acupuncturists have been using for thousands of years. Dermal needling has been used for a variety of ailments by stimulating the cutaneous levels of the meridians of the body - it can help improve diseases and conditions of the body and also is very effective to rejuvenate the skin and hair follicles. Also known as Microneedling, Skin Needling and Collagen Induction or Fusion Therapy, Dermal Needling is a safe, effective way to improve the tone, texture and pigmentation of the skin, it can also be used to address fine lines, scar tissue and stretch marks. Downtime is minimal with this procedure, and sue to the non-ablative method, preserves skins natural essence instead of degrading it as many more aggressive medical procedures can do.
The most common technique is the Derma Roller which you can purchase and use at home in a lighter way to help the skin absorb your serums and moisturizer, plus the needling of the skin stimulates the immune response which means - collagen heads to the 'rescue' and as a by-product will give the skin a more plump appearance. We offer microneedling using a rotary machine with specific microneedling needle tips, and when needed will use other needle configurations to address scarring
How we offer dermal-needling for skin rejuvenation:
At Lion's Heart we believe that the best way to help someone look better is to also help them FEEL better, and the best route to do this that we offer is with Cosmetic Acupuncture. Cosmetic Acupuncture is less invasive than dermal needling and is a Whole Body treatment, that not only addresses and corrects aging skin, but also corrects the underlying causes of the laxed appearance.
We think it's most effective to use within a series of Cosmetic Acupuncture sessions. Interchanging 1-3 dermal needling sessions within a 10 session series of Cosmetic Acupuncture helps BOTH treatments produce better results.
Microneedling for stretch mark, scar and acne scarring reduction:
The one place microneedling truly shines is in the reduction of the appearance of scars and stretch marks. We offer treatments for scars and stretch marks without acupuncture. Results are not often seen in a stand alone session and results will increased over time as the skin cycle continues to heal. 2-5 sessions done 5-8 weeks apart is an average of what to expect for maximum results.
