Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen Induction Therapy (sometimes referred to as micro needling) is one of the most effective ways to improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, skin tone, firmness, pore size, texture and tightness over time.  Effective on the face, neck, and chest, a series of 3 treatments is recommended along with at home use of a growth factor product like Regenica for optimal results. Can be done in a series of three sessions at 2-4 week intervals for most dramatic results. Treatments can also be done every 3-4 months for skin maintenance.

Collagen Induction Therapy is a safe, chemical-free technique that triggers new collagen production.  It can be performed on all skin colors and types.
