Microneedling / Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling, otherwise known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a painless procedure to improve skin quality and health. This is achieved by the use of small, sterile needles to puncture the stratum cornea, which causes hundreds of fractionated injuries (open channels) to which your body responds with a complex repair cascade involving fibroblasts to create more collagen and elastin to repair the newly opened channels. This allows for your skin to repair and improve pigment irregularities, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity, scarring, and acne scars!
Our staff has extensive training on the procedure and each member has been certified to perform microneedling. Your skin will be cleansed and anesthetic cream will be applied prior to the procedure to ensure comfort. There is little downtime after the procedure. We will apply antioxidant and anti-aging serums at the time of the procedure, which will be driven into the skin by the use of the open channels, and will be sealed in by use of a post-procedure calming mask. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments, although you may begin to see improvement after one treatment. This is an effective treatment that is safe for all skin types.
