DO YOU SEE A DIFFERENCE AFTER ONE SKIN NEEDLING TREATMENT?

SKIN NEEDLING SAFE FOR DARK SKIN TYPES.
The most exciting thing about skin needling is it’s safety profile.

It does not cause significant trauma to the skin’s surface unlike laser or some chemical peels which cause significant surface trauma with high risk of hypo or hyper pigmentation after treatment.
