Collagen Induction Therapy
WHAT IS IT?
Collagen induction therapy, or microneedling, is a method of stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms by creating tiny micro-punctures in the epidermis and dermis of the skin. This process stimulates the release of growth factors, and increases the production of collagen and elastin.
The benefits of dermal needing include:
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
Smooth skin texture
Reduced appearance of scars
Thickening of the skin
Decreased pore size
With dermal needling the epidermis is kept intact, so there is no down time after treatment. It can be done on all areas and types of skin including thin and sensitive skin. Dermal needling also increases the absorption of applied product by 1000 fold, allowing your cells to receive the vitamins, minerals and nutrients they need for optimal health.
WHO SHOULD MICRONEEDLE?
Those showing or looking to prevent signs of aging, stretch marks, sun spots, acne pitted scars and surgical scars, pigmentation, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Most commonly face, neck and chest. Consult with one of our doctors if you are looking for treatment on other areas of the body.
CAN I MICRONEEDLE AFTER BOTOX OR FILLER?
It is recommended to wait at least 14 days following a Botox treatment before microneedling the same area. Recommended wait time after a cosmetic filler treatment is 28 days.
