Microneedling or nanoneedling

Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

Microneedling Collagen Treatment

As we age, the natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Your skin is also affected by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. This procedure creates channels that trigger the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, causing the cells to regenerate and repair. The process will improve blood supply resulting in improved skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, wrinkles, stretch marks and more.

Reasons to try Microneedling

The physical nature of skin needling breaks up fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates new tissue growth which results in a smoother, even skin surface.

Patients who have taken isotretinoin (Accutane) within the previous 12 months or are currently pregnant cannot have the treatment. Patients who have a history of radiation treatments, collagen/vascular diseases or autoimmune disease may not respond as well. In addition, smokers do not heal as well and excessive alcohol and excessive sun exposure limit results.

*Collagen building takes time, typically 60-90 days. Therefore, results will develop gradually in the months following the initial series of treatments. Maintenance treatments are required to maintain the results.
