Automated Micro Needling
Automated Micro Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT, is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin's texture, tone and color.

to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to
improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How Does Micro Needling Work?
A sterile needle tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the micro needling device. Our trained skin care professionals will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs.
Using a single motion, the device will gently be pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire area has been covered.
The feelings associated with Micro Needling is similar to that of sand paper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Micro Needling Treatment Duration
Some patients only require a single treatment , once per year to achieve
optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a
series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.
For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
Recovery & Side Effects of Micro Needling Treatments
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes our aesthetician performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days, though some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Patients will notice an immediate glow to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks.
