MICRONEEDLING (COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY)
Microneedling is a 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 a larger wound. It creates more collagen in the affected area, which in return thickens your skin and improves its texture.
This medical-grade treatment will not only improve skin appearance, but can also be used to treat hyperpigmentation , stretch marks, acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles. There are many wonderful benefits that can result from this treatment. Because microneedling enhances 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 appearance of the skin will occur.
The down time is approximately 3-4 of tight feeling skin. We encourage clients to treat the area microneedled like a bad sunburn. If moisturizer and a minimum of 30 SPF is consistently applied, the skin (the amazing organ that it is), will repair and be fresher, tighter and more youthful looking.
This treatment is recommended in packages of 3 every 4-6 weeks until desired outcome is achieved. Then bi-annually to maintain. The results are exceptional when combined with other treatments. For instance Microneedling/Laser Genesis is an incredible combination therapy. 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.
