Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a treatment that utilizes surgical grade micro needles to perforate the skin in a perfect stamp-like motion activating the body’s repair mechanism.  Micro-injuries created by microneedling trigger skin cells to intensify the release of collagen and elastin to improve a wide range of skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, dark spots, and loss of elasticity.  Microneedling offers the safest method of collagen induction therapy because it leaves the epidermis completely intact.  There is minimal to no downtime (typically 48 hours) for the treatment. Length of healing time depends on the severity of the skin condition, and the depth of the micro needles used to target the skin condition.
