Microneedling 101 at Yin & Yarrow, St Paul

Yin & Yarrow in St Paul specializes in Microneedling

Microneedling offers the ultimate in facial resurfacing and rejuvenation. According to Traditional East Asian Medicine, the state of our physical health, emotions, and spirit is reflected on the skin of the face, therefore, maintaining the vibrancy of our facial skin is imperative to how we look and feel. Microneedling is a safe and effective alternative to plastic surgery, toxic injections, and enhancement techniques. When you receive Microneedling at Yin & Yarrow, I not only focus on the skin, but the mind, body, and spirit for a truly holistic experience.
