Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). Treatment of Microneedling does not burn the skin like laser, dissolve it like chemical peels, or scrape it like dermabrasion. Microneedling gently stimulates the skin with very fine micro needles that encourage natural collagen production. The microneedles create small punctures (micro-channels) in the skin, which in turn stimulate new collagen and elastin to form. This natural repairing process creates smoother, brighter, healthier, and younger-looking skin.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling does an excellent job at rejuvenating the skin to reveal a beautiful complexion. It also offers the following benefits:
No risk of adverse reaction
Safe for all skin types
Little to no downtime or recovery
Little discomfort or pain
Effective on many skin imperfections
Who is the Ideal Candidate For Microneedling
Microneedling is beneficial to clients who may have acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles or any other skin imperfections such as:
Uneven skin tone
Rough skin texture
Severely dry skin
Does it hurt?
The feeling is similar to a light sandpaper is moving across your skin. While some areas such as the forehead, maybe sensitive than others, it is definitely tolerable. We also apply topical numbing for you prior to the treatment.
Please plan on arriving 30-45 minutes in advance for numbing! The treatment itself takes about 1 hour.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. It looks almost like a sunburn. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some clients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
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 to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most clients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For clients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
What products do we use?

Why do we choose Human Bone Marrow Growth Factor for Microneedling and why it is a better choice than Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Why you should go to a professional to get Microneedling treatment instead of an in-home use of Microneedle (aka. Dermaroller)?
Technology has moved forward with the invention of the medical ‘microneedling pen’, which is a much more advanced and effective method for skin rejuvenation. Licensed estheticians use the microneedling pen to effectively create micro-channels.

How is the Treatment Done?
A series of 12 sterile micro-needles are attached to the MDNeedle Pen. We then apply a layer of your topical solutions (Hyaluronic Acid or Growth Factor Serum) onto the skin while, the needles are gliding over the skin creating micro-channels in order for the skin to take absorb better. It is important to understand that using the Microneedling Pen to create micro-channels is more effective and less traumatic than using the Microneedle Roller.
