Micro Needling – A new way to make collagen
The process is called Collagen Induction Therapy and is used to improve
• Texture and tone
• Surface scarring
• Fine wrinkles
How does it work?
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. We use the automated Eclipse MicroPen™ for its predictable performance and safety profile.
There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
An outstanding product absorption booster
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs
- Hyaluronic serums
- Lightening or bleaching serums
- Stem cells to multiply new young cells
- Vitamin C for strengthening and antioxidant boost
