JENNY GARCIA ACUPUNCTURE
TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE & HOLISTIC HEALTHCARE
Micro-Needling offers natural skin rejuvenation, improves fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes skin texture, decreases pore size, and tightens skin. It also increases product absorption (3000%), decreases brown spots, and can help treat scars and stretch marks.
How does Micro-Needling work?
Micro-needling creates microscopic punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production and the growth of new skin cells.
Are there any contra-indications?
Almost anyone can have the procedure performed as long as they do not have any active infections, lesions, or any known wound healing issues. Contraindications include active acne, local infection such as warts, moderate to severe chronic skin disease such as eczema and psoriasis, blood dyscrasias, patients on anticoagulant therapy, extreme keloidal tendency, or a patient on chemo/radiotherapy.
What is Nano- Needling?
Nano- Needling uses an oscillating motion over the skin and has 81 silicone tips. These microscopic hair-like cones separate the cells within the epidermis to allow active products to be pushed into the skin. Nano-Needling only affects the epidermis, treating within the upper .15 mm of the skin. The benefits of this serum infusion treatment include pigmentation reduction, increased cell turnover, skin rejuvenation and an immediate glow with no downtime. This treatment can be done weekly to exfoliate the skin. Nano-Needling allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats wrinkles, acne hyperpigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and other skin blemishes using your body’s own repair process.
Micro-Needling treatments increase product absorption by 3000%. Products used during the treatment are:
Hyaluronic acid is used to increase skin moisture, repair and plumpness.
Swiss Apple Vegan Stem Cells:
The stem cells of the famous Uttwiller Spätlauber trees of Switzerland have been scientifically proven to trigger the epidermal cells of the skin to begin self-renewing at a pace similar to that of early youth. This prevents the skin from sagging, developing lines and wrinkles, and appearing unhealthy or dull.
Scientists at Mibelle Biochemistry first in-house study on cell viability showed that, at a concentration of only 0.1%, an extract of Uttwiller Spätlauber stem cells stimulated the proliferation of human stem cells by an astounding 80%!
A human study showed that topical application of Apple Stem Cells reduced the depth of crow’s feet wrinkles after only two weeks.
Naturally Occurring Bio Algae
(Decreases Brown Spots)
Acts on various stages of melanin production and deposition in the skin to improve luminosity and decrease visibility of hyperpigmented areas to even out the skin tone.
Reduced melan-A protein levels (40%), thus interfering with the development of melanosomes.
Diminished the amount of human tyrosinase protein by up to 48.9% and its activity by 24.3%.
Decreased the amount of melanin pigment produced by melanocyte in culture by 61.3%.
Acting on melanocytes, resulted in a 69% lower uptake of particles (phagocytosis)
Neutralized hyper-pigmentation (related to age spots) in reconstituted epidermis.
E. Crustaceum Naturally Occurring Marine Algae
(Decreases Under Eye Bags)
Eye puffiness appears due to liquid retention as a consequence of higher permeability of blood vessels, which when added to bilirubin accumulation (from hemoglobin breakdown) induces vascular pigmentation and therefore dark circles. In addition, the deterioration of skin support proteins, like collagen and elastin, contributes to an increased visibility of such signs, besides the development of wrinkles.
Decreases vascular permeability to ameliorate eyebags and dark circles
Enhances bilirubin degradation to reduce the vascular pigmentation that causes dark coloration under the eyes
Promotes the production of type I collagen and elastin by dermal fibroblasts
Diminishes glycation of collagen to maintain strength and elasticity of the dermis
In vivo, it improves the appearance of all signs of aging in the eye contour area including dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles
Celluma LED Infra-Red Light Therapy:
Micro-Needling treatments begin with 20 minutes of Celluma LED Infra-Red Light Therapy. This contributes to collagen and elastin production, increases keratinocyte proliferation (better skin tone, firmness, texture), reduces inflammation, and increases micro-circulation.
Celluma increases ATP production, and ATP causes a cascade of metabolic events, resulting in biochemical and cellular changes with remarkable results.
Many different cells respond really well to Red and Infrared.
Fibroblast Cells: (affected by red mostly) Any cell from which connective tissue is developed; it produces collagen, elastin, and reticular (meshed; in the form of a network) protein fibers.
Keratinocytes: (affected by red and near-infrared wavelength). Manufacture keratin, a family of durable protein polymers (two or more molecules) found only in epithelial tissue (the layer of cells forming the epidermis of the skin, has no blood vessels, and has the ability to replace itself quickly). Provide structural strength to the skin, hair, and nails.
Mast Cells: (affected by red and near-infrared wavelengths) Mast cells are large tissue cells essential for inflammatory reactions. Present throughout the body in connective tissue but concentrated beneath the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory and digestive tracts. They are covered with immunoglobulin E (IgE) and stimulate degranulation (the release of chemical mediators, eg, histamine, leukotrienes).
Neutrophil Cells: (mostly affected by near-infrared wavelengths) A granular white blood cell (most common type of WBC 55-70%) that protects the body against infection and plays a primary role in inflammation. Neutrophils killed during inflammation release destructive enzymes and toxic oxygen radicals that eradicate infectious microorganisms. Adequate numbers are important to protect the body from infection.
Macrophage Cells: (affected by red and near-infrared wavelengths) A mature monocyte (a new white blood cell which is still circulating in the bloodstream) which has settled into tissue. Along with neutrophils and monocytes, they are the first line of defense in the inflammatory process. They engulf foreign antigens and cell debris. Macrophage cells are present in the skin as Langerhans cells. Sometimes called “scavengers of the blood”. They also play a vital role in activating specific immune responses.
