MICRONEEDLING – is a procedure which encourages microcirculation and natural collagen production and rejuvenation. It is also efficient in hair restoration, in cases of non-androgenic alopecia.
Micro punctures are manually created in the area where wrinkles are most prominent or in the areas where other skin irregularities are found. Microneedles penetrate 0.2 – 0.75 mm into the skin. The procedure is considered to be painless. During the procedure, a specially designed and patented Gel Solution (Tango and Jive) is applied to the surface of the skin and subsequently absorbed.
Results and effects of the treatment: the skin is hydrated, tight, lifted and rejuvenated, smoother with improved skin tone, which reduces the visibility of existing wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful appearance, acne scars are reduced, wounds heal, pores are reduced, stretch marks are reduced, alopecia is treated. The results are visible within 24 hours after treatment and last for several months. The procedure is repeated two to three times with ten to fourteen days in between treatments.
In order to achieve the desired effects, 3 treatments are usually required, with a 2-week break between each treatment. The effects last between 4 to 6 months.

The technician applies an appropriate PhiFace Mask and provides the client with detailed instructions for use immediately after the treatment.
A thin layer of Microneedling After Care is applied to the area treated each time your client/you feels raw or when the skin feels tight.
