Microneedling triggers collagen and elastin production by using tiny “micro needles” to create dermal wounds. This results in smoother, more even skin tone and texture. Microneedling can be done on all skin types and is a great way to refresh the skin and renew your skins youthful appearance.
What is MICRONEEDLING?
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is for the treatment of the appearance of fine wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and the improvement of skin texture, tone, and color. During the procedure, a micropen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The micropen also creates microchannels which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin. Treatments consist of 4-6 sessions once every 4 weeks to achieve maximum results. Can be combined with HA (hyaluronic acid), GF (growth factor), hydroquinone or PRP (platelet rich plasma).
How does IT WORK?
It works by creating fractionated micro-injuries (tiny holes) in the epidermis and dermis. These micro-injuries produce a cascading effect that results in tissue remodeling and strengthening as a result of the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The channels that are created also allow for better absorption of your skin care products. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and wonderful results are achieved with a series of 4-6 treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart. As with all our procedures, a thorough consultation prior to treatment, in addition to, an appropriate home care regimen after treatment will aid in achieving optimal results.
