Reduce Fine Lines, Soften Scars, and Smooth Texture with Micro-Needling

With Micro-Needling, or procell™ Collagen Induction Therapy, patients see improvement in the overall tone and texture of their skin.

Micro-Needling works by creating tiny micro injuries in the skin stimulating new cell growth. The production of these cells may improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretchmarks, and irregular texture or pigment. These results may be further enhanced by adding specialized skincare products.

Typical Treatment Areas Include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Hands
  • Stretchmarks

What to Expect from Collagen Induction Therapy

A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area for roughly 20 minutes and then small, controlled wounds are made using a micro-needling device. Patients may experience a mild sunburn sensation, redness, and swelling for 2 or 3 days. Small areas of scabbing and peeling may occur 2 to 3 days after treatment. Any increase or decrease in pigment may take several months to resolve.

Most patients require up to 5 treatments, at 4 week intervals. Improvement to the skin is gradual, with optimal results occurring 3 to 6 months after the last treatment.
