Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that uses tiny needles to create hundreds of microscopic channels in the skin. The controlled injury triggers the skin’s natural wound-healing process to kickstart the production of new collagen and elastin—key building blocks for firmer, more supple skin and healthier skin cells. After undergoing micro-needling treatment, patients report continued improvement of the skin’s firmness, elasticity, texture, and radiance.
At your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin and recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your needs and goals. Most patients undergo a series of three to six treatments spaced four to eight weeks apart for optimal results. The initial series is typically followed by maintenance treatments every four to six months to keep the effects going as long as possible.
A SkinPen is a handheld tool that includes 14 tiny needles to create microscopic holes in the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process to create new collagen and elastin. This means that your skin can naturally rejuvenate itself and produce healthier new skin cells in the treated areas. The production of new cells can reverse the effects of aging and reduce the appearance of scars and other imperfections on the skin’s surface.
The SkinPen is an FDA-approved device used to safely and effectively treat a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks. It works by creating a series of microscopic channels in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing response. This response results in the formation of new collagen and elastin, creating smoother skin and diminishing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. This procedure boasts minimal downtime with little discomfort or side effects. Patients often notice results after just one treatment!
Additionally, the SkinPen is extremely versatile and can be used to treat patients of all skin colors, making it a great option for a wide range of people. This device can be used on all skin types, which makes it a versatile treatment option. Some patients even use it around their eye area to reduce puffiness or dark circles. Additionally, it’s safe to use on delicate areas like the neck or chest. After the procedure, you can expect tighter and more even-toned skin with visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles and improved texture, tone, and color. Results are long-lasting but can be maintained through regular professional treatments and proper home care.
