How does the treatment work?
The treatment stimulates the skin to repair itself naturally & safely, by creating controlled micro injuries in the skin. A small hand held pen-like device is used to create these micro injuries, by gently inserting tiny pin pricks to the skin, allowing the absorption of the tilapia & its active ingredients into the dermis as well as stimulating the production of elastin & collagen, which is a vital component of health skin.
After the treatment these pin pricks will rapidly close enabling the skin to recover. Your skin will then start to regenerate and repair the skin. The skin will look glowing afterwards but the true long lasting results will be seen once new collagen & new skin cells are generated. This can take upto 6 weeks.
