The newest treatment to MeMosa Clnic is an innovative procedure to rejuvenate aging skin and reduce acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks. The microneedle pen is a micro-needling device with a unique spring-loaded needle tip. This sterile tip uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that makes extremely small holes in the outer layers of the skin. This helps to stimulate collagen production, thereby improving the appearance of your skin, allowing you to achieve:
Skin tightening and lifting
Reduced lines and wrinkles
Smoothing of scars and stretch marks
Minimizing visible pores
Microneedle therapy can also be used to help deliver topical anti-aging treatments deeper into the skin. It doesn’t matter how good a topical treatment is if it just sits on the top of the skin. By combining microneedle therapy with topical anti-oxidant and vitamin treatments, you can improve the efficacy of your skin care treatments.
This treatment may be performed by our licensed medical estheticians to provide rejuvenation of your face and body, or deeper and more aggressive treatments can be performed by our doctor to treat your scars and stretch marks.
