How Does Microneedle Work?
The use of Microneedle is part of a complete treatment known as Mesotherapy which is gaining popularity in the USA, but is very well known and sought after in France. Treatments will consist of six sessions, all of which include a series of micro injections administered mid-way into the skin. Each treatment will be scheduled two weeks apart; some patients may need to continue up to six months.
Microneedle is more commonly used to treat signs of aging that appear on the face; however, Microneedle can also safely treat areas on the hands, neck and chest.
