Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This is done by creating microchannels that lead to the dermis of the face and neck where collagen and elastin are stimulated. This controlled injury of the skin allows it to  benefit from its own natural healing process resulting in smoother, and firmer skin.

Hyaluronic acid is used together with this treatment to further aid in collagen production. Micro-needling helps target wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, large pores, surfacing pigmentation and evening and toning skin.

Although a single treatment may suffice to address minor skin concerns, three to four treatments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart will provide optimal results. More complicated skin may require further treatments.

The micro-needling procedure requires no pre-treatment and is minimally invasive. A numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and covered for 20-30 minutes to allow for numbing. At this point the micro-needling can begin.

There are 2 versions of professional micro-needling tools, the glider and the stamp. You may have seen numerous videos of procedures where the tools glide across the face. Those as you guessed are gliders. A stamp tool, like the INNOPen, will consist of numerous overlapping up and down applications on the skin.

We use the stamp method. Why?

  1. When gliding you are not puncturing the skin at a sufficient depth to achieve ideal results. The stamp method allows your esthetician to ensure there is a sufficient micro-channel created.
  2. The stamp allows for local customization across your skin. The depth of the needles can be altered to more aggressively target wrinkles, scaring and other trouble areas.
