An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that can improve the overall appearance of the skin with minimal downtime. By creating minor skin injury during the procedure, the skin’s natural healing process initiates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers that thicken the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is one of the hottest growing procedures in the US, due to its efficacy and safety. Microneedling works by using a fractional technology that smooths, tightens and rejuvenates the skin.
Microneedling is often performed in a series of monthly treatments; the procedure is effective in helping reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pore size, keloid, surgical and acne scars.*
What conditions can micro-needling improve?
Micro-Needle based procedures can be used to effectively treat a variety of issues including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage and aging spots
- Light to moderate acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Issues with skin texture or pore size
- Post-surgical scarring
Based on the patient’s desired area of treatment will determine the length of the micro-needling procedure. Typically, the micro-needling treatment can take about 15 minutes. Some patients may experience some minor inflammation or redness after the procedure, but these side effects generally ease within 2-4 days afterward. We recommend multiple micro-needling treatments so that patients can get the best out of their results.
