Collagen Induction Therapy (Medical Micro-Needling)
Medical Micro-needling is an effective tool in anti-aging and skincare which helps lift and tighten the skin while providing texture improvement for all ages and skin types. It differs from cosmetic micro-needling in several ways:
- Medical micro-needling can go as deep as 2.5 mm to allow a broader range of applications.
- It must be performed by a licensed medical professional.
- PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) can be used in medical micro-needling for superior long-lasting results.
- Physician prescribed peptide therapy which is specially ordered from FDA Approved USP-797 certified compounding facility is available.
You can get smoother and younger-looking skin, without the side effects or downtime of cosmetic surgery, lasers or injectables. Micro-needling produces controlled micro-wounds into the skin which induce your body’s own healing mechanisms. Producing collagen and elastin for smoother, tighter looking skin. Micro-needling is considered a no-downtime treatment. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. When coupled with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), exosomes or biologic allograft, the benefits of micro-needling and collagen induction are far more effective and produce longer-lasting results.

Typically a series of 3-6 micro-needling treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Treatments are spaced in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Most, if not all, patients see results after their first treatment. Individual results may vary depending upon individual skin health. It is most common to see true changes or positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment and even sooner in some cases. This treatment can dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, large pores and other textural imperfections on the surface of the skin.
Prior to your treatment with a micro-needling device, the medical provider will apply a topical numbing agent. Most people say they feel minimal discomfort when numbing cream is used.
