Dynamic Functional Healing in Minneapolis Adds Micro and Nano Needling for Skin and Hair Issues


Dynamic Functional Healing is adding micro and nano needling to its offerings for the treatment of scars, melasma, acne and wrinkles and hair restoration. Treatments may include the use of APSTEM stem cells from Uttwiler Spätlauber, a rare apple from Switzerland, as well as any of seven different Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) serums. Treatments may also utilize high-quality, lab-produced hyaluronic acid that is both vegan and cruelty-free, ensuring patients’ safety and optimal results. The use of a state-of-the-art needling device increases absorption of these serums by 2,000 percent.

Melissa Cathcart, owner of Dynamic Functional Healing and an acupuncturist of 19 years, shares, "I never thought I would be offering a cosmetic modality, but the more I learned about it, the more I understood its place in holistic health, that all layers of the tissues need to be treated. The face holds a lot of important acupoints and how a person feels about themselves can make a difference to their health, too." Patients will also receive body acupuncture during their micro and nano needling sessions to address their overall health concerns and TCM patterns.

To discover if micro and nano needling may be right for you, join Dynamic Functional Healing, at 6 p.m., on November 17, for an open house and informational presentation. Meet the practitioner, learn about the service and the serums and get all your questions answered. Food and gift bags will be given to all participants.
