When it comes to minimally invasive treatments, Collagen Induction therapy (aka Microneedling) is clinically proven and is perhaps the most successful treatment available for the common signs and symptoms of aging such as wrinkles, loss of skin volume, and crepey skin. The Collagen Induction treatment even targets the epidermis in such a way that it is clinically proven to minimize scars and stretch marks. The procedure triggers the body’s spontaneous healing process, stimulating cell proliferation and causing the formation of new collagen. This results in a thicker, more supple, cellular matrix.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it painful?
The feeling associated with Collagen Induction Therapy is similar to microdermabrasion. Some areas are more sensitive than others. The speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable. Sometimes, depending on the depth of the needling and the condition being treated, topical numbing agents may be used.**
What is the Downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a pinkness to the skin, similar to a sunburn. The total healing time depends on the condition being treated and the depth or the procedure. Adhering strictly to post care instructions will speed up the healing process.**
When will I see Results?
There is an immediate glow to the skin. Visible changes will develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve for up to 6 months as collagen production continues.**
Most clients will need a series of 2-3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Depending on severity of condition, others may require 6-8 treatments to achieve their desired result.**
