COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
90 minutes – $305
As we age, we produce less collagen and elastin, substances that gives youthful skin its firmness and fullness. Microneedling stimulates the production of these substances by enhancing the body’s natural healing process. This treatment minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scarring, reduces “crepe-y” skin texture and age spots, improves and evens out overall tone and texture, and can decrease the appearance of small capillary vessels that give skin a red, flushed appearance.
After a thorough cleansing, a powered handpiece will be applied to the entire face, neck, and décolleté with special focus where skin is structurally weak or there are contour deformities and scarring. The handpiece uses tiny needles to create small channels in the skin, activating a natural healing response. We enhance your results by using the small channels to drive in growth factors by AnteAGE MD to further stimulate the repair process.
How Many Treatments are Required?
The number of treatments varies per individual. It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions depending on the severity of the conditions to be treated. After each session, you can expect facial redness for 24 to 48 hours. You can wear mineral makeup the next day to hide discoloration. You may experience a “wind-burned” sensation, tightness, and mild flaking. Noticeable difference in the skin’s texture will occur within a couple of weeks after your treatment.
Once optimal results are achieved, we generally recommend 1 to 2 sessions a year for maintenance of the outcome. Results are best maintained when professional treatments are combined with a recommended home regimen. Also note that this treatment can cause diminished pigmentation.
