Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as Microneedling, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems like acne scars. During this procedure, the device is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to activate your body’s natural cellular regeneration of collagen and elastin. Microneedling is used for skin revitalization for all ages and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.

Benefits include:

  • Aid in the production of collagen and elastin
  • Improved skin texture and firmness
  • Softer appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of acne scars
  • Reduction of hyperpigmentation for a brighter, more even skin tone
  • Prevention of premature aging

We offer two different microneedling methods, your skincare provider will decide which is best for you upon consultation.

“Restore” DEEP Needling
Creates a pattern of micro-channels in the treatment area, typically face neck and décolleté. These micro-channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Micro-channels also create micro-injuries which causes the body to send blood and growth factors to the area resulting in glowing, healthy skin. Great for those wanting deeper results for acne scars and mature skin.

“Refine” NANO Needling
More Superficial treatment and an excellent treatment for those who don’t want to use topical numbing or those who want a quick, no-downtime way to have hydrated glowing skin.

Microneedling Common Questions

A numbing cream is applied to the skin to reduce discomfort. The procedure is typically done in 15-30 minutes on the face and neck over serums like Hyaluronic Acid, which also promotes collagen production. Optional treatments such as dermaplaning, peels, and growth factor masks are included with each procedure. Safe and healing skincare products and sun protection are required to be used post-treatment for a minimum of 72 hours. Your skincare provider will decide the best treatment combination for you and how many sessions will be needed based upon your skincare goals and skin type.

Notice an immediate glow to the skin. Visible changes within the skin and to the texture of the skin can develop over a course of a couple of weeks. Results can continue to improve for up to 6 weeks after the treatment as collagen production continues.

This will vary for all patients, depending on their skin condition and the results they are seeking. Usually, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about 4-8 weeks apart is needed for the best results. Depending on skin concerns, some patients may need only one treatment, while others with deep wrinkles or acne scars may be recommended to receive 6-8 treatments and yearly maintenance.

Immediately after the treatment, there will be a noticeable bright redness to the skin. Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure, any discomfort or downtime will last on average of only 1-3 days post-treatment, while some patients are completely healed in 24 hours. Utilizing a custom post-care regimen with our medical-grade skincare will help to speed up the healing process.

Any suspicious lesions are a contraindication to receiving this service and they must be diagnosed by the service provider prior to beginning treatment. Discontinue autoimmune therapies and retinoid products 24 hours prior to beginning treatment as they can cause skin sensitivity and interfere with the procedure. Those who have active acne, severe rosacea, prone to keloid scarring, open wounds or other inflammatory conditions are NOT suitable for microneedling.
