The treatment involves using a micropen to create controlled microscopic injuries in the skin to induce the collagen and promote healing. This treatment is also know as collagen induction therapy. As the body produces more collagen it also strengthens the skins elastin resulting in the reduction of fine lines, acne scars, texture, tone and color of the skin.

What is Microneedling?
It sounds scary, but we promise it’s not! Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a relatively new and innovative procedure that uses a pen-like tool to create tiny micro-punctures in the skin that results in deep healing and rejuvenation.
As we age, collagen production drops and existing collagen is broken down. Microneedling boosts collagen production and strengthens skin elastin, resulting in the reduction of fine lines, acne scars, texture, tone, and colour of the skin. It’s fast, easy, and results are almost immediate!
How does it work?
A Microneedling tool (We use The Eclipse MicroPen, although some other practitioners will use a roller) is placed on the skin and delivers hundreds of micro-punctures to the area. A super hydrating serum is spread on the skin and the micro-punctures allow the active ingredients to penetrate the skin much more deeply than they would otherwise. These micro-injuries paired with healing and hydrating product increase collagen production and cell generation, leaving skin rejuvenated and youthful.

How fast will I see results?
How long will it last?
As we age, collagen production drops and existing collagen is broken down. This is what causes fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping skin. Lifestyle habits such as sun exposure, tanning beds, smoking, and alcohol consumption aid in expediting the process. Unfortunately, science has not yet found a way to permanently halt signs of aging, however, regular maintenance and proper skin care routines can slow it down drastically and help you retain a vibrant, youthful appearance.
This is why after the initial series of treatments, depending on factors such as age, skin type, quality of aftercare, and lifestyle, maintenance every 6-12 months may be required, although this varies per client.

What are aftercare requirements?
Immediately post-treatment, your skin will be completely “open,” so there is a strict aftercare routine that MUST be followed. The purchase of certain skincare products for home recovery and maintenance is mandatory for this treatment.
Mandatory Home Care: Max facial cleanser | Hylauronic serum | Prevention Plus or I Rescue Recovery Balm
Avoid direct sunlight, products that contain AHA, Retinol, or other similar ingredients, makeup/makeup brushes, and excessive sweating to avoid irritation and/or infection.
More detailed aftercare instructions will be provided to you by your esthetician.
