Micro-Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy)
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive, in-office, skin rejuvenation treatment that improves fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and other conditions by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
Medical-grade Micro-needling creating a series of microscopic channels into the skin to stimulate production of new collagen and elastin. Younger & Healthier Looking Skin skin with little or no downtime!
How It Works
Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury by producing new collagen and elastin. Collagen Induction Therapy initiates this injury response using Micro-needling – a technique that creates hundreds of temporary micro channels – or openings – in the skin without any thermal energy or skin removal. These are called fractionated injuries and there are several benefits to this approach:
- The temporary micro channels allow for optimal delivery, penetration and diffusion of topical treatments into the skin
- Quick, safe and effective method to induce production of collagen that is non-ablative (no skin removal), requires no thermal energy and promotes quick, scar-free healing
- Safe for all skin types with no risk of fibrosis
- No significant downtime
What To Expect On The Day Of Treatment
Similar to mild sunburn, redness, swelling and tenderness may follow the procedure, but patients can expect no significant downtime with Micro-needling. After just one day, patients may return to normal activities and are able to conceal most of the signs of treatment with makeup. Within days, there will be no evidence that any treatment was performed at all.
