No Machines No Acids No Skin Breakage

Sponge spicules are a kind of siliceous bio microneedle that is extracted from the freshwater sponge. 

They can stimulate the dermis of the skin and start skin surface microcirculation. They effectively deliver active ingredients to the dermis layer of skin while also activating the basal skin cells.

They can be seen as powder to the naked eye and as a sharp rod crystal under the microscope. In just 15 Minutes, 3 – 5 000,000 natural siliceous microneedles are directly introduced into the dermis layer through hand massage

No bleeding, no anaesthetic, and no skin breakage

Your SQT Bio Microneedling therapist Jenna explains more...

In just 5 Minutes, 3 -5 million natural siliceous microneedles are directly introduced into the dermis layer of the skin through hand massage to promote skin metabolism and stimulate collagen regeneration. There is no bleeding, no anaesthesia, and no skin breakage. The treatment shortens the skin cycle from 28 days to 7 days by activation of the basal skin cells, and achieves natural, safe, and
effective physical rejuvenation.

Spongilla spicules are an effective modality of skin resurfacing and provide a natural alternative approach to microdermabrasion and dermabrasion, chemical peels (glycolic acid, Jessner’s, phenol and trichloroacetic acid peels), CO laser resurfacing and Erbium laser peels to correct visual facial defects such as hyperpigmentation of various etiology, fine wrinkles, Sun damage, Superficial Scars, comedones, enlarged pores, and facial rejuvenation.

Upon massaging Spongilla spicules into the skin, the spicules mechanically separate the epidermal layers and reduce keratinocyte cohesion, thereby increasing stratum corneum sloughing and sebum plug and loose keratinocyte removal.

What are Spicules & their function?

Spicules are the endoskeleton of a sponge. They are a sharp, barbed like structure that contain important nutrients and minerals for the skin. SQT Spongilla spicule needles travel deep into the dermal layer of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin synthesis.

It is a hydrolyte of the purest organism in the world, a raw material purified by a patented refining technology. The Spongilla therapy speeds up the cell turnover process to 5-7 days (regardless of your age) leaving your skin feeling smoother, more youthful, and vibrant.

3-5 million micro channels are created within 5 minutes of treatment application! The skin is being stimulated for up to 72 hours post treatment, providing nutrients to the skin and peeling off waste. It also improves the effectiveness of topical skin care products, enhancing their absorption by up to 3,000%.
