What Is Medical Micro-needling – Collagen Induction Therapy?
Medical Micro-needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) with SkinPen Precision device is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the skin. Our SkinPen creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
At Compassion Acupuncture we offer various Fusion Meso Therapy serums that contain only pure active ingredients that offer a combination of peptides and growth factors, as well as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.
Benefits of SkinPen Medical Micro-needling include:
- Improvement of fine lines and deeper wrinkles
- Reduction of acne scars
- Softening stretch marks
- Evens skin tone
- Lightens hyperpigmentation and sunspots
- Reduces appearance of pores
- Firms and smooths skin texture
- Heals scars
- Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins
- Brings back the glow for fresher, younger-looking skin
- Stimulates production of collagen and elastin
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
- Before Treatment
Your provider will gently cleanse your skin. Topical anesthesia may be administered to assure maximum comfort during the treatment.
- During Treatment
Skin Pen creates millions of controlled microchannels in the skin. This jump starts the production of collagen and elastin and encourages the release of growth factors that recruit and increase reparative cells. The result is a cascade of healing processes that can continue for months following your treatment.
The SkinPen treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Depending on whether an anesthetic is used prior to treatment, your entire treatment session may last up to one hour- still plenty of time to schedule your treatment before work or during your lunch hour. Be sure to speak with your provider before you come to get an accurate estimate, so you know how to plan your visit.
- After Treatment
Your skin may initially appear slightly pink to red, similar to a mild sunburn. This is normal and should subside within 24 to 72 hours.
Some people see rejuvenated skin after just one treatment, and results may continue to improve for three to six months following your last treatment.
