What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During the is procedure controlled micro-injuries to the skin are made in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles.
Micro Needling Benefits
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-needling can improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
What areas of the body can be treated?
All parts of the body: face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Is there any downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
