Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), generates micro-punctures in the skin resulting in a controlled injury and the skin’s natural wound-healing process in the deep layers of the skin. We use SkinPen, the only FDA approved device for microneedling. Microneedling improves mild to moderate acne scars, rough skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, while decreasing pore size and tightening laxity of the skin. Microneedling can be used on its own, for deeper absorption of topical skin care products (such as Vitamin C skin serum) or in combination with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and colors. Downtime can last up to 48 hours with redness and mild swelling. Optimal results occur after 2-3 treatments spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. With a proper skin care regimen, skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months following microneedling treatment.
