Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling treatment is making headlines in skin rejuvenation because it is very effective, affordable and convenient–with treatments only taking about 1 hour and having very little downtime. This remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment causes skin to stimulate collagen production and generate fresh, new tissue. This stimulation is vital as we age because our ability to create collagen, elastin and youthful skin slows considerably–leading to the signs of aging. Rejuvapen helps skin tighten, and makes wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation diminish significantly. Pores become finer and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Medical Microneedling is a medical aesthetic treatment process that gently and effectively creates thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations in the skin. The body immediately responds to these tiny physical injuries with a healing response, releasing growth factors, boosting fibroblasts and making fresh new tissue. Scars, wrinkles and pore size are diminished. Skin tone and tightness increase. Medical Microneedling is a great way to boost collagen and freshen up mature skin by recruiting your body’s natural ability to regenerate and heal itself.
Ideal Candidates for Microneedling
Microneedling is appropriate for patients with scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, loose skin, or hyperpigmentation issues. Healthy patients without active skin infections are ideal candidates for microneedling. Candidates must have no scarring- or healing-related issues.
Microneedling is suitable for patients of all skin tones. Candidates must be fully committed to undergoing the recommended number of treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
During your consultation, we will evaluate the condition of your skin and discuss your beauty goals. We will also look over your medical history, including any previous skin treatments you have tried.
We will discuss microneedling in detail so you can make a sound decision. We encourage our patients to ask questions throughout the consultation period.
Next, we will develop a personalized microneedling treatment plan according to your skin condition and goals. We will provide specific skincare instructions to prepare your skin for the treatment. It is important to follow these instructions closely for safety and optimal results.
Each microneedling session usually lasts around half an hour. It will start by cleansing the skin area and applying topical anesthesia..
Once the anesthesia has taken effect, the microneedling handpiece will be passed over the treatment area for even coverage. A special serum or calming treatment will be applied to complete the microneedling session.
