Q: How can I enhance my Microneedling results?
A: Although you will see results within 1-3 treatments, you will get the most out of microneedling by using proper skincare and always wearing SPF. During your treatment, we can optimize your results by using a stem cell solution derived from human bone marrow stem cells. These stem cells are sourced only from the bone marrow of young, healthy, pre-screened adult donors. Stem cell cytokines also contain none of the original cell parts themselves, only the beneficial growth factors they produce. The benefits of using stem cells while Microneedling include: brightening, anti-aging, and clarifying.
