What is Medical Grade Microneedling?

Collagen Induction Therapy is a skin rejuvenation procedure that improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and stretch marks by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Collagen Induction Therapy uses micro needles to create hundreds of micro channels in the superficial layers of the skin. In response to these micro injuries, the body releases growth factors, which trigger the wound healing process. During this process, the body produces normal woven collagen vs. scar collagen, resulting in thicker more youthful appearing skin. This treatment is under the guidance of a medical director

Who can benefit from microneedling?

Anyone seeking skin rejuvenation can benefit from microneedling. It is safe for all skin types and tones.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

No Retin-A products or applications for 24 hours prior to treatment.

No auto-immune therapies or products 24 hours prior to treatment.

No prolonged sun exposure or sun burns to the treatment area.

Skin should be clean and makeup free.

No fillers, botox, chemical peels or laser treatments two weeks before microneedling.

Expect 2-3 days of social down time after collagen induction therapy.

What should I expect during my treatment?

A sterile tip housing microneedle is attached to a pen type device. The pen is electrically charged and oscillates the needles, moving them up and down at varying speeds. A treatment serum is applied to the skin and the tip, containing the needles, glides over the skin creating micro channels. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before the treatment to make it very comfortable. The microneedling treatment takes about 30 minutes.

What about Home care?
