Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of the MD Needle Pen.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.
Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

Q & A
What is Microneedling?
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, Microneedling uses a device to create micro-wounds in the dermis. These micro-injuries trigger the bodies natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin.
What can Microneedling do for my skin?
The result is improved skin texture, laxity and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars. These channels also allow Hyaluronic Acid or our own bodies own PRP (platelet rich plasma) to be driven deep into the dermis, increasing the skins utilization of nutrients by up to 3000%.
Who is a good candidate?
Anyone that wants to improve skin irregularities and look younger.
How many treatments do I need?
A single procedure will make a nice change but a series of 3-6 treatments is ideal for optimal results. Our licensed aesthetician will evaluate your skin, discuss concerns, and establish an individualized treatment plan.
How much downtime will I experience?
The majority of patients skin will be red and flushed for 12-24 hours.
