Microneedling

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a new and revolutionary concept and treatment that is aimed at stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin in order to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. This can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, decrease pore size, improve both surgical and acne scars, and leave the skin feeling and looking smooth and tight.

Using a specialty hand piece that controls the depth of penetration, thousands of micro-perforations are made within the dermis of the skin. Each of these microscopic holes activates a cascade of tissue regeneration, collagen formation, and a favorable, predictable wound healing process.

In addition, the creation of thousands of mirco-pores in the skin allows for better delivery of stem cells, growth factors, cosmeceuticals, and other revitalizing bioactive treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question - What is microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin and cause controlled skin injury. This then triggers the body to repair itself, producing new collagen and elastin, improving the skin quality.

Question - What skin conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of skin-related conditions including:

  • Wrinkles & Fine Lines
  • Rough skin
  • Post surgical scars, trauma scars, acne scars
  • Photo-damage

Question - Is microneedling painful?

Microneedling is mildly uncomfortable, but the pain is managed and prevented using a topical numbing medication prior to treatment.

Question - How many treatments are necessary?

Most patients require several microneedling treatments over the course of a several month period in order to achieve optimal results.

Question - What is the recovery like?

Among the many benefits of microneedling compared to other collagen stimulating therapies is the short recovery time. Depending on the treatment type and depth of the needles used, recovery ranges from slight redness of the skin for a day or two, to mild swelling and pinpoint crusting at the needle points. The skin will also feel tight and will be sensitive to sunlight (sunblock is necessary during the healing process).
