Microneedling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy is used to rejuvenate skin cells and stimulate collagen production by causing a controlled pro-inflammatory response in the dermis. A sterile cartridge containing tiny micro-needles is attached to a device that allows for controlled depth micro-injuries to the skin. This process attracts fibroblasts to the treated area which then lay down a new collagen and elastic matrix.
Our Non-surgical skin rejuvenation enhances the microneedling procedure with the added boost of your bodies own concentrated growth factors and signaling proteins to stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production. This serum is derived from your own blood and provides a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells that create a more powerful response than just microneedling alone.
Yes! This takes a concentrated injection of your growth factors and signaling proteins to a deeper level within the skins surface allowing it to add volume underneath deep lines or depressions and fill in the areas for a smoother appearance.
The majority of patients skin will be red and flushed for 12-24 hours after the procedure.
Some patients only require a single treatment annually to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments spaced 6 – 8 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6 – 8 treatments.
The procedure takes about 60 minutes but can vary depending on the size of the area treated.

We recommend a free skin consult with one of our doctors before beginning treatment to evaluate and determine the length of treatment necessary for your skin care needs. Outcome cannot be guaranteed. Results vary per person. All procedures within a package must be for the same type. All medical services are by appointment only.
