Skin Needling – Collagen Induction Therapy

The ideal skin is soft, supple and glowing. But life happens so some of us have sun damage
skin, acne, wrinkles with age, freckles, sun spots that would not budge. What can we do to improve the appearance and health of our skin?

The answer is Collagen Induction Therapy.
Collagen Induction Therapy also known as skin needling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment technique that boosts your skin production of collagen and elastin.

Collagen and Elastin are two of the most important substances to maintain youthful skin. Collagen and Elastin decline as we age.

How does it work?

Skin needling involves using a mechanized device called a dermapen to make thousands of
miniscule needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the
depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern of these needle pricks, the dermapen stimulates your
body to make more collagen in the areas where it needs it the most. Skin needling has been scientifically demonstrated to show improvement in fine lines, freckles and sunspots, scars, burns, pitted and non-pitted acne scars, stretch marks, and large pores.

Skin Needling can be combined with a liquid treatment on the skin surface– such as vitamin
C, PRP– to further improve skin quality, evenness, and texture. This is highly effective
because the skin absorbs more of these growth factors as a result of skin needling treatment.

Is the treatment painful?

Our practitioners use strong numbing cream on your face to ensure you are comfortable. The
treatment feels akin to a deep vibrating facial.

Your face will be slightly red and you will feel a tingly sensation. This will subside and you are back to your normal activities the following day.

How many treatments do I need?

Improved skin appearance begins to occur almost immediately and continues for 4 to 6
weeks. For best results, skin needling can be repeated as frequently as every 6 weeks, or as
infrequently as 2-3 times a year, depending on your concerns.
