MicroNeedling / Phi Lings

Microneedling – Human skin is a periphery organ, an organ lies at the outer most of the body. In term of distribution of nourishment, skin lies at the bottom of the list because tissue regeneration and vitality maintenance are far more important for internal organs. Therefore, it is very important to physically stimulate the regeneration of the skin. Each micro-damage that is formed on the skin actually sends a message to the brain that it is necessary to start the natural regeneration and additional nourishment in that very spot. In that way the collagen production is greatly stimulated. The procedure is aimed at stimulating microcirculation, thus it has also been successfully used for hair restoration in cases of non-androgenic alopecia. Micro-punctures are being inflicted by hand or by machine, depending on the size of the treated region. Microneedles penetrate the skin to the depth of 0,2 – 0,75mm and the procedure is considered to be painless. During the treatment, Micronnedling coctail is applied based on the skin type and it is subsequently absorbed. After the treatment, the client is issued with special kind of aftercare product (Ultimate Skin Cocktail) followed by detailed instruction for use. Proper aftercare products application is of great importance as these products will nourish the skin during the regeneration process. Treatment results include: skin hydration, increased skin tone and smoothness causing existing wrinkles to be less visible and skin younger looking. Results become visible 24 hours after the procedure and will last for a few months. The procedure is repeated up to three times ten to fourteen days apart. The client can practice microneedling at home as well, by using a special applicator and cocktail. A home variety of microneedling does not involve deep penetration into the skin, so this treatment can be done once a week.

Phi-Ion – Phi Ion Pen is a minimaly invasive cosmetic tool for precisely oriented sublimation of the superficial skin layer. It is based on transmission of controlled quantity of energy by ionization of the atmospheric air. This process triggers an instant contraction and tightening of skin fibers to create a lifting, remodeling and rejuvenating effect. This method can be used to tighten the specific areas without causing any damage to the underlying or adjacent tissues. Phi-Ion treatment provides baggy eyelid correction, it can be used for wrinkles tensioning-crow’s feet, marionette lines, it is used for acne scars improvement, and it can also remove skin blemishes (advanced training required). This revolutionary method is capable of achieving results comparable to the results of the cosmetic surgery. One treatment is usually enough to achieve desired results.

This extremely low temperature freezes water in the skin cells and in their interspace. Frozen water spreads and breaks the cell membrane.

The treated part of the tissue separates from the cell and it moves towards the skin surface by drying out and 10-14 days later it falls off.

Indications for the Cryo Pen treatment are as follows: 

  • Skin hyperpigmentations resulting from the sun or other weather conditions, scars and stains from the scars, benign lesions on the surface of the skin, such as: keratosis, papillomas, fibromas, warts, angiomas, miliums.
