Collagen Induction Therapy, more often referred to as micro-needling, is a natural and effective way to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, etc. while improving the overall quality of your skin. With the use of an FDA approved, motorized, hand-held, micro-needling device tiny punctures are created into the face and neck. This results in the acceleration of collagen production and cellular turnover, while also making your skin more susceptible to product absorption. A vegan line of products that are safe (pregnant people and cancer patients can use them), adaptogenic in nature (adapting to YOUR skin’s specific needs), non-comedogenic (do not clog pores) and clean (containing no hormone disruptors or toxins) are used during this treatment.
Nano-needling is also performed during this treatment at the more sensitive regions such as around the eyes, the lips, and surrounding skin of the mouth.
Finally, yellow/red LED Light Therapy is used to further promote the production of collagen and elastin and to help reduce any redness and/or swelling.
Combined, these procedures leave you with a bright, healthy, and younger-looking complexion.
**Given the cumulative nature of this type of service, results are best seen after 3 to 4 treatments. Outcomes vary depending on age and skin quality. Micro-needling should only be performed at 4-to-5- week intervals. Even though it is considered minimally invasive compared to other procedures, Micro- needling requires 24 to 48 hours of recovery time.
Other benefits of micro-needling therapy are:
-improve elasticity, firmness, and hydration
-increase the absorption of skincare products making them more effective
-smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
-break down scar tissue thus reducing the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring
-reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation
-provide a more youthful looking complexion
Micro-needling is also very effective in the treatment of:
-various types of acne and bacne
Rarely, side effects can occur after a micro-needling treatment. These include:
What is Nano-needling?
This procedure uses tiny silicone pins to penetrate the top layer of the skin by separating cells, also allowing active ingredients to be delivered. Like micro-needling this procedure improves skin cell turnover and reduces hyper-pigmentation, leaving your skin rejuvenated and with an immediate improvement in appearance. Compared to micro-needling, nano-needling is considered non-invasive. There is no recovery time and can be performed frequently.
Benefits of nano-needling:
-increases skin smoothness and hydration
-improves microcirculation on the treated skin
-even out skin tone
-improve skin texture and acne scarring
-make lines and wrinkles less noticeable
-make skin healthier and firmer
