Microneedling 

 

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy and has been widely used in aesthetic medicine for a number of years. The microneedles penetrate into the deeper layers of skin, resulting in the stimulation of its natural healing process. Extra collagen is produced, causing the skin to look brighter, smoother, and more youthful.  Microneedling is a very safe technique for all skin types.

 

Our LABpen device is a CE marked FDA approved wireless microneedling device designed to work with LABthetics active serums to induce collagen therapy and aid the transepidermal penetration. The device has been developed with changeable headpieces that create tiny micro-canals to deliver results safely and effectively. Our derma rollers are hand held needling device designed to dramatically increase the effectiveness of LABthetics products by allowing improved penetration of active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin.
