Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that entails making minute punctures in the skin with very small hyper sterilized needles. The treatment is simple but very effective in leaving the skin looking healthier and better toned.

How microneedling works

Due to aging, sun exposure and injuries, the skin naturally loses its collagen over time. Production of more collagen can help the skin become firmer and better toned. Microneedling works by stimulating the production of collagen through small controlled injuries made to the skin. The skin responds in turn by producing collagen-rich tissue that is fresher, smoother and present more youthfully.

Microneedling procedure

A topical anesthetic will be used to numb the surface of the skin to reduce the chances of pain or discomfort throughout the procedure. Our skin care professionals then use a micro needling tool to evenly create multiple tiny punctures on the skin. This treatment takes about thirty minutes and the fine punctures are not noticeable after the procedure.

Am I a candidate for microneedling?

Microneedling can be done by almost anybody and is particularly effective for persons with:

  • Little facial vibrance, luster or “glow”
  • Fine to moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks and sun damage
  • It is not advised for minors or for persons with infection or excessive facial scarring or open sores, and persons who are currently pregnant or actively nursing.

What is after treatment like?

Microneedling requires little recovery time and many patients require no downtime at all. After microneedling, you might experience irritation and notice some redness in the skin for the first few days. This is a natural reaction to the treatment as the skin rebuilds and replenishes. The skin is also bound to become far more sensitive to sunlight throughout recovery, so wearing sunscreen is a must.

How much does microneedling cost?

Because of its widespread popularity, cost per treatment has come down greatly, and now typically ranges between $500 and $700 per treatment, which cost can vary slightly based on the patient’s goals and skin condition.
