Collagen Induction Therapy or…
MICRONEEDLING is a minimally invasive treatment that diminishes wrinkles and fine lines, and adds volume to the skin using the body’s own healing properties. We use tiny needles to create micro-punctures in the skin. Your body reacts to these micro-punctures as it would to a larger wound. The inflammatory cascade that follows this micro injury stimulates the treated area to produce more collagen and elastin, which in turn thickens your skin and improves its texture.
There are so many benefits that can result from this treatment. Because microneedling increases the production of collagen and elastin, it can reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier, and even tone is drastically improved.
What to Expect
The down time is approximately 3-4 of tight, “windburnt” feeling skin. We encourage clients to treat the microneedled areas like a bad sunburn. If Growth Factor Serum and a minimum of 50 SPF is consistently applied, the skin (the amazing organ that it is), will repair and be more evenly toned with minimized pores and diminished scars from acne as well as fresher, tighter and younger looking.
This highly effective de-aging treatment is recommended in packages of 3 every 4-6 weeks until desired outcome is achieved. Then on a bi-annual basis to maintain. The results are exceptional when combined with other treatments. For instance Radio Frequency + Microneedling or Laser Genesis + Microneedling are both incredible combination therapies. The microneedling creates a physical wound and the Laser Genesis creates a thermal injury response at the same time. This creates a physiological response from the body to heal on two levels of the dermis.
Microneedling and Radio Frequency Skin Tightening is also an amazing combination treatment. The deep dermal heating of the water layer under the dermis combined with the thousands of little microcosms in the skin creates yet another physiological response that increases collagen and elastin production. Lifting though the jawline and around the eyes is quite significant.
