Collagen Induction Therapy (Microneedling)
What is Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, theSkinPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin. SkinPen® is the first micro-needling device cleared by the FDA & clinically proven to be safe & effective. SkinPen® has a validated sterile cartridge with precise depth, straight needles that support the skin’s natural healing process, where others may damage the skin.

How long does the procedure take?
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
The total healing time depends on the SkinPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. We have skincare that can help to speed up the healing process.
When will I see the results?
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 30 days apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
