Collagen induction therapy, better known as microneedling, is an advanced skin revitalization treatment involving the delivery of microscopic injuries to the skin’s surface, triggering the formation of new collagen. This treatment may be right for you if you need help with sun-damaged or aging skin, but you do not wish to undergo a procedure that involves surgery. You should be able to resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique in which we trigger skin remodeling by forming numerous microscopic punctures in your skin. This will initiate a healing cascade that results in your body laying down a new collagen matrix to improve the condition of skin affected by problems like lines and wrinkles, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and scars caused by injury, surgery, or acne.
What Makes Microneedling Better Than Other Treatments?
Microneedling has the ability to significantly enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for surgery or extended downtime. Since the temporary damage caused by the treatment is microscopic in size, less skin tissue requires repair and healing time.
Another advantage to undergoing a treatment is that your results will be very natural, in contrast to some treatments that may seem overly drastic or deliver results that seem unnatural. We are working with the innate healing abilities of your own body. Your results will develop very naturally over the following weeks and months. No one will know that you had anything done. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself with smoother skin and a more even skin tone.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
The ultimate determination if you would make a good candidate for microneedling can be made at your initial consultation. However, the vast majority of patients make suitable candidates for the treatment. Unless you are dealing with a skin infection or an active breakout, you would more than likely be eligible for this procedure.
When Will I Notice Results?
We are stimulating your body’s regenerative abilities. You may notice some initial improvement in the first weeks, but optimal results may take months as your skin gradually and naturally remodels itself to reduce imperfections like sun damage or signs of aging.
