Micro-Needling


Microneedling – also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) – is a powerful facial rejuvenation treatment. Microneedling involves the use of a mechanized device that features a series of tiny needles that penetrate the top layers of the skin. The procedure is not painful because the needles are very short and only cause a mild “prickling” sensation as they superficially puncture the skin’s epidermis. These controlled “micro-injuries” rejuvenate by catalyzing the skin’s own natural healing response and rebuilding the skin by encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin – smoothing texture and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling also may also be used to create “micro-channels” for deeper absorption of topical skin care products, such as Vitamin C skin serum or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment.

Why you need to do it:

• Stimulate healing of acne scarring
• Reduce fine lines and wrinkles due to aging or smoking
• Smooth skin texture
• Even out skin tone irregularities due to hyperpigmentation or aging
• Reduce broken capillaries or spider veins
• Reduce large pores, sun spots, or burn scars
• Rejuvenate by firming, lifting, toning and sculpting sagging skin

(NOTE: Microneedling is not recommended for those suffering from rosacea or overly sensitive or reactive skin.)
