What is Microneedling?
AKA Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) used a device to create micro-wounds in the dermis layer of the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the bodies natural healing process, producing new collagen and elastin. The result improves skins elasticity, texture, discoloration, sun damage, reduces scars, fine lines, wrinkles, big pores, scars, and stretch marks. Case studies also prove it helps grow back hair for hair loss sufferers.
How many Sessions do I need? How far apart?
Number of sessions vary from person to person. Stretch mark and Scar cases usually need several, we do 3 and reevaluate. Could be fine with 3, could need 4-6, could need 8-12 for maximum results. For facial anti aging clients we do 1-2 sessions and reevaluate. Sometimes 3-6 sessions is necessary for maximum results, and then 1 once a year for maintence thereafter. Elsa guarantees 50% improvement of area, how many treatments it takes to get to 50% is unknown. Treatments are 4-6 weeks apart.
What’s it Like While I Heal?
