Collagen loss causes many of the visible signs of aging. Skin laxity, uneven skin tone, and fine lines can result from your skin’s loss of support. Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, triggers collagen restoration. This effective treatment improves the appearance of your skin with long-lasting results. 

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy uses needles to create micro-channels in your skin. These tiny areas of controlled injury trigger a process of skin renewal and rejuvenation. Cells around the micro-channels flood the area with healing factors, increasing collagen production and speeding up cell turnover. As a result, skin looks firmer, smoother, and more youthful.

How Long Does it Take to See Results from Microneedling?

Your skin needs time to produce more collagen and bring new, healthy cells to the surface. Results from microneedling can become visible after a week or two. Depending on their skin concerns, most people will need more than one microneedling treatment. You may have between two and six treatment sessions. Results will continue to improve for weeks after each session, with full results developing after a few months. 

What Can Microneedling Treat? 

The new collagen that develops after microneedling will produce gradual but noticeable changes. With collagen induction therapy, you can see results including:

  • Firmer, smoother skin
  • Improved brightness
  • Decrease in hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Improvements in acne scarring
  • Smoother lines and wrinkles
  • Clearer, more even-toned skin
  • Smaller pores

After microneedling, your skin looks rejuvenated and has youthful firmness and clarity. 

Types of Microneedling

We offer three types of microneedling that allow us to customize your treatment plan. 

RF Microneedling

In this form of microneedling, the needles deliver RF energy into the deep layers of your skin. This heats the skin and triggers more collagen production at deeper levels. Adding RF energy makes treatment more effective and delivers results more quickly. 

Microneedling With PRP (SkinPen®)

The SkinPen® microneedling device gives your provider precise control over the process. The handheld device stimulates collagen production, especially where you need it most. SkinPen® is considered a revolution in precision microneedling with PRP. 

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) comes from a sample of your blood. It concentrates the platelets and other healing factors from your blood. After microneedling, we can apply PRP to the skin to trigger an immediate healing response. PRP improves skin tightness and speeds up recovery. 

Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?

You can return to work or other activities after treatment. You may experience redness and sensitivity that look and feel like sunburn. These effects fade within a few days. You should wear sunscreen at all times after treatment
