Collagen Induction Therapy 
(Microneedling)

Collagen Induction Therapy is often referred to as an advanced microneedle technique because the practitioner uses a deeper needle depth which causes desired excessive bleeding. 

Collagen Induction Therapy works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too. 

 Collagen Induction Therapy Procedure

During the procedure, the practitioner makes small pricks under the skin with Derma Pen. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. The practitioner will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too. 

Before getting started, we will use a topical anesthetic, Scalpa Numb, to reduce the chances of pain. This is done about 30-45 minutes prior to treatment.
