Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is a revolutionary treatment in cosmetic dermatology to remedy the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars.

Micro-needling uses tiny needles to precisely poke small holes into the surface of the skin. These tiny "injuries" are made to stimulate collagen and elastin growth. Once the skin heals and repairs itself, wrinkles and fine lines will look softer and less noticeable. Likewise, topical medications will be able to penetrate further into the epidermal layer of skin and have a stronger effect.

We are proud to use the SKINPEN ™, the only FDA approved micro-needling device on the market!

A sterile needle-tip containing 14 tiny micro-needles is attached to the pen. After using a topical numbing agent, our skincare professionals will apply a thin layer of topical hyaluronic acid or growth factors to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your skin's individual and unique needs. This will allow us to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow's feet and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip or cheeks, the necessary adjustments can easily be made. Then, the SKINPEN system will be gently glided across the skin until the entire treatment area has been covered, opening up thousands of microscopic channels.  You may also add on a chemical peel to your treatment.

Most SKINPEN ™ patients experience a healthy, pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients experience little to no downtime.

Micro-needling with the SKINPEN ™ can benefit many types of skin that are afflicted with a variety of problems. Fine lines and wrinkles will appear less noticeable, and skin will look younger and refreshed. Skin that has acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation and stretch marks can also benefit from micro-needling.
