Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and overall improvements in the skin’s texture, tone, and color. After a topical anesthetic is applied tiny needles are passed over the skin creating micro-injuries. It is the healing process that promotes the production of new collagen and elastic fibers.
You’ll see softer, younger-looking skin with reduced signs of aging and sun damage.This procedure also helps reduce hyperpigmentation (browns spots) and stretch marks. Microneedling produces tiny channels in the skin which allows select topical agents to be absorbed into the deeper layer of the skin, enhancing their effect. An example of this includes using the patient’s own platelet rich plasma, as the topical agent, for a more natural experience. For maximum results, microneedling should be performed as a series of treatments. We offer a package of 3 treatments at a reduced rate.
