What is Microneedling?

Are you looking for a natural way to rejuvenate your skin? Well, sit back, relax, and let your body do the work for you. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a cutting-edge technology that uses the body’s natural healing process to generate younger, more revitalized skin.

Collagen induction therapy is a minimal downtime skin rejuvenation procedure gaining in popularity among women and men of all ages. It takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete. A small surgical pen is gently glided across the skin, creating microscopic channels.

This releases natural growth factors and sets in play the body’s natural, intricate healing process stimulating the production of important structural components.

This procedure is considered an excellent option for a broad range of skin types and colors and can be used on any part of the body, but most commonly the face, neck and chest. The boost in collagen and elastin will greatly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture irregularities, sun damage, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and many types of scars.

Immediately following treatment, patients will have a mildly sunburned appearance that usually resolves within one to two days afterward. Patients are able to resume their skincare regiment 24 hours after treatment.

To enhance the collagen induction therapy, your very own platelet rich plasma (PRP) can be added to the skin during the procedure to enhance the results and speed the healing process. This involves a blood sample and the harvesting of cells rich in specialized proteins and growth factors. Applied to the skin during the microneedling procedure, it boosts the desired results and generates healthier, more youthful skin.
