COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (also referred to as “microneedling”)

Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.

The SkinPen is the first FDA-approved microneedling treatment and is:

  • Clinically tested and proven.
  • Backed by an unparalleled commitment to safety and efficacy.
  • Performed by leading dermatologists and estheticians.
  • Convenient, requiring little to no downtime. 
  • Simple, with results in just one to three 30-minute sessions.
  • Designed to work without chemicals, heat, or stress.
  • Engineered and made in the USA.

The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This Trauma prompts the deeper layers of the skin to rebuild by activating one's own natural healing. The body responds by flooding the area with new collagen and elastin as well as other healing factors.

Micro needling may help address many skin-related complaints, including: wrinkles, including neck wrinkles, scarring, acne, alopecia, skin pigment issues, stretch marks, rosacea, helps rejuvenate the skin.

It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure. Research shows that collagen and elastin production is increased for up to 6 months post procedure.
