What is the Nano?
Nano Needling is a controlled injury treatment, which means the we are injuring the skin in a controlled way. With Nano Needling the injury to the skin is very minor but we can “trick” the skin into thinking that it needs to heal and repair a larger injury. When the skin needs o repair itself it builds collagen and elastin while also triggering cell turnover. In addition to those benefits we also create thousands and thousands of tiny little channels in your skin which allow the potent and effective products that we use to travel deeper into the skin and be extremely effective.

There are a few things that are very important after your Nano sessions but they are fairly easy so don’t worry!
The day of your treatment you will be somewhat red, sometimes this carries on to the next day but not always. On day 3-5 you will potentially have some slight flaking or peeling, this should not exceed 7 days.
For the week following your treatment you will need to avoid direct sun exposure (so make sure your wearing hats if outside for a long time) and always wear your mineral sunscreen reapplying every time you will go outside. You will also need to avoid harsh scrubs and cleansers, any skincare with acids in them (with the exception of Hyaluronic and Ascorbic), wash your skin morning and night, avoid wearing foundation for 48 hours, avoid excessive cardio and chlorine for 48 hours, and use quality skin care to optimize results.
