DEPTH AND SAFETY
Because Collagen Induction Therapy uses tiny, ultrafine needles to penetrate the skin, our specialist is aware of the exact level of skin that must be reached in order to achieve results safely. Going too shallow won’t reach the layer producing the elastin stimulation and collagen protein needed to rebuild the skin. By going too deep, the needle can become invasive and undermine the skins protective barrier.
Through research and experience, our trained specialists has learned the depth that breeds both healthy results and steers away from pain and harm.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DOES IT TAKE?
A common misconception is that one session is enough, this is false.
We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart with in 6 months the first time. After that, 4 treatments spread out in a year is recommended to keep up the results. Sessions may very depending on each
IS THERE ANY MICRONEEDLING DOWNTIME?
Microneedling has minimal downtime. The inflammation and redness of the skin will typically reduce during the first 48 hours after treatment. It’s also recommended to avoid putting on makeup, or any other topical skincare products with AHA’s (Glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” irritating ingredients during the rest of the day. Your skin may also be a little more sensitive to sunlight, so you should avoid direct sun exposure for about a week after the session. Regular activity can be resumed the next day. Please follow the Post-Procedure handout for optimal results and to minimize side effects.
