What is Microneedling with Meso Cockails?
Skin needling is one of the industry’s leading skin treatments of choice for a brighter and rejuvenated complexion.
Microneedling is safe, effective and suitable for all skin types. It can be used to stimulate new skin cells encouraging the natural production of new collagen and elastin.
When new collagen is formed it helps smoothes wrinkles, promoting wound healing and improving scars in just a few treatments.
We can offer a more enhanced and bespoke treatment by combining our Microneedling with wonderful mesotherapy cocktails, enabling us to treat a multitude of skin concerns.
Once the small puncture sites are created in the skin by the microneedling device the mesotherapy cocktail containing antioxidants can then enter and penetrate the skin more effectively to tackle pigmentation, help hydration and promote firming and tightening.
