What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) improves the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. 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.
All Micro-Needling Treatments will include:
· Cold laser photo bio-stimulation
· Soothing hydrating mask
$300 per treatment
· $100 additional for neck
· $800 per package of 3 treatments (face & neck)
A medical exam fee of $30 is required.
Packages must be used by the same person

The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. This treatment also has a positive effect on aging and creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin
How the procedure is done and What it feels like
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the micro-needling device. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel or serum to your skin and select the appropriate setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. The feeling associated with micro-needling is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
Down Time & Results
Immediately after the treatment you will notice bright redness of the skin. The total healing time depends on the device setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some clients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the suggested after-care regimen, or other quality skincare products advised by your skincare provider can help to speed up the healing process. Clients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. Some clients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For clients with deep wrinkles and advanced photo-aging it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals
