What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive method of addressing acne scarring and pitting, injury and surgical scars, skin discoloration, mild rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This method uses fine needles to puncture the skin and stimulate natural collagen production. The small injuries incurred by the skin are effectively patched by the natural rush of collagen, thereby improving your skin texture without the involvement of chemicals or surgical methods.

What is collagen induction therapy?

Collagen induction therapy relies on your body’s natural healing ability to improve your skin. Specifically, this method uses the growth factors we produce naturally in our bodies to heal our skin. Unlike many other treatments, collagen induction doesn’t rely on chemicals or additives. This means there is no risk of you developing allergies or getting an infection.

How does microneedling work?

As the microneedling device stamps over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures, most of which temporarily push your pores open. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger collagen and elastin production. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process.

What can I expect during treatments?

During treatments, the microneedling device will be placed against your skin. Typically, a topical anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort, but some discomfort may be experienced nonetheless. After the skin is numbed, your RTW provider will gently move the microneedling device over your skin to puncture the epidermis layers of the skin and create minuscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition, which may last up to a year but close within less than an hour.

With collagen induction, we will also include a routine blood draw. Once the necessary blood is extracted (typically, a single vial is the only thing needed), it is run through a centrifuge machine to isolate the growth factors. These growth factors are then reinjected into your body or used as part of a microneedling treatment to rejuvenate your skin. This entire process typically takes less than an hour to perform. For best results, multiple sessions may be necessary.

What can I expect from the results?

Results can be seen within a week or even a few days. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little microneedling stimulation, changes can be dramatic and fast. The best results can be achieved in 6-8 weeks. While results can be seen after one session, several are recommended to achieve the best outcome. It is important to discuss your post-treatment care and what to avoid after a session during your initial consultation.
