Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy or Dermapen, uses a specialized treatment for wrinkle reduction, collagen stimulation, and treatment for acne scars.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create multiple microscopic injuries in the epidermis over a 60 minute treatment session. The injuries trigger the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smoother, healthier looking skin. Healthy skin cells then work to rejuvenate skin from inside out, resulting in a more evenly toned, tighter and radiant skin.
Microneedling is ideal for treatment of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, as well as improving the skin’s overall appearance giving it a healthy-looking glow! Patients usually require multiple treatments for optimal results.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive, skin resurfacing treatment that gently exfoliates the skin, removing the top layer of dead skin cells. This process stimulates collagen growth to reveal skin that looks and feels healthier. Microdermabrasion is ideal to correct sun damage, light scarring, fine lines, blemishes, dull skin, and discoloration.
This type of microdermabrasion works with a diamond-tipped hand piece that gently abrades and exfoliates dead skin cells. The process takes 20-30 minutes and results can be seen and felt after the first treatment.
