Microneedling, otherwise known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a therapeutic technique involving the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin to produce micro-injuries. The body’s spontaneous healing process is triggered, increasing cell activity which forms the growth of collagen and elastin- the key to a more youthful appearance.
New collagen deposition results in skin tightening, a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, thin and crepey skin, scars, acne, and pores. Microneedling is also proven to reverse the signs of sun damage including uneven pigmentation, and even stubborn melasma. Microneedling also provides the opportunity for better product absorption, including anti-acne medications, to penetrate more easily into the skin.
Microneedling is a popular procedure that is not regulated in the industry. This treatment needs to be performed by well trained technicians who use proper pens that are sterile and cannot cross contaminate between clients. We take pride in ensuring that we are using the safest pen and cone shape needles.
While you can expect to see a noticeable difference in the matter of days, collagen and elastin continue to form over months. Microneedling can be done as a stand-alone treatment or enhanced with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Call us to find out more.
