Microneedling, which is also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a treatment where controlled and precise micro-injuries are made to the skin resulting in new collagen and elastin. Microneedling treats fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, texture, tone, color, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and overall skin rejuvenation. Microneedling creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams or PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) to be absorbed more effectively, multiplying collagen production! This treatment is great on all skin types and is done in a series of 3-6 treatments. The SkinPen® treatment can be done on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, and abdomen.
Also known as PRP, which we refer to as your body’s “liquid gold”. Your body’s PRP has at least eight essential growth factors and proteins, which are all anti-aging, collagen stimulating and recovery boosting agents that will leave your skin glowing. PRP is combined with your SkinPen® treatment to maximize your results and allow your body to recover and heal in a shorter period of time.
