FAQ: Collagen Induction Therapy

What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

Also called microneedling, is a minimally invasive treatment performed in the spa by our Master Estheticain. It is safe for all skin types and skin tones. It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin. A device with 12 very small needles is used to create tiny channels in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Our microneedling serum is used which is a blend of Vitamin-C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic acid, and Ferulic acid to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.

 

 

Does it hurt?

No! A topical anesthetic will be applied to numb the skin. You will experience little, to no discomfort.

 

 

What can be treated or improved?

  • mild to moderate acne scarring
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • sagging skin
  • skin texture and pore size
  • hyperpigmentation (sun spots, age spots, melasma)
  • stretch marks

 

 

What will I look like after the treatment?

Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding. Skin will be noticeably smoother and have a glow day one. You will continue to see more results and radiance within a week or two. Full results can take a few months to appear. You can continue to see results building for up to 6 months.

 

 

What should I avoid on my skin after treatment?

AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for 2-3 days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged. You may wear mineral makeup 24-48 hours after treatment.
