Collagen Induction Therapy (Microneedling)

What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Collagen induction therapy or Microneedling is performed via fractional delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body's innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction.

Microneedling promotes scarless wound healing and natural collagen production and is the closest treatment to Fraxel Laser with much less down time, discomfort and expense.

Best done in a series of 4 to 8 treatments, based on skin condition.

During the treatment, active ingredients in medical grade serums are applied to enhance the effect on collagen and elastin rejuvination, and darker skin types do not have to worry about hyperpigmentation.

At the 2010 Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas, Microneedling was voted "Best professional skin rejuvenation treatment."
