What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates the body’s wound healing process and new collagen and elastin growth. Collagen and elastin are proteins naturally found in the skin and they give it firmness and elasticity for a plump, youthful look. As we age, collagen production slows down, leading to skin laxity or sagging skin and wrinkles.
With the Collagen P.I.N microneedling device, tiny needles puncture the skin in micro-channels to stimulate collagen production and the turnover of new, healthy skin cells. New healthy skin cells replace damaged skin cells that form the appearance of acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and other skin imperfections.
These micro-channels in the skin’s surface also allow topical serums to be absorbed deeper into the skin for more effective use. Microneedling can be used on the face, neck, decolletage, hands, and more to improve skin elasticity and the appearance of aging skin.
Skin Conditions Treated with Microneedling
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Atrophic acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Enlarged pores
Who is a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling treatment is safe for all skin types and skin tones (including darker skin tones) and can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. However, you should wait to receive treatment if you have an active skin infection or open wound, including acne breakouts.
Microneedling Results & Recovery
Microneedling results are both immediate and ongoing because of the gradual regrowth of collagen and elastin. After a microneedling procedure, mild skin swelling and redness are common, but your skin will quickly heal on its own within a few days, revealing brighter, healthier skin.
We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments, depending on the severity of the skin conditions you hope to treat. How many treatments you require can be determined at your initial consultation and we will also be happy to answer any other questions you might have.
