About the procedure
Collagen Induction Therapy, also called Dermapen Microneedling, or Microneedling, is a minimally invasive technique that boosts your skin’s production of collage and elastin, two of the most important substances in maintaining plump, youthful, glowing skin.
Microneedling involves using a mechanized device called a dermapen to make thousands of miniscule needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern of these needle pricks, the dermapen stimulates your body to make more collagen in the areas where it needs it the most. Microneedling has been scientifically demonstrated to show improvement in fine lines, freckles and sun spots, scars, burns, pitted and non-pitted acne scars, stretch marks, and large pores.
Prior to the procedure taking place, you will receive a complimentary consultation, we will go through your medical history, find out what aesthetic look you are looking for, if the procedure is right for you and address any concerns you may have.
- Procedure Length: 15-20 minutes

Dermapen Microneedling cost per treatment is $250.
Three to four treatments are recommended for achieving ideal results.
Microneedling can be combined with a liquid treatment on the skin surface– such as growth factors, vitamin C, or platelet rich plasma (PRP)– to further improve skin quality, evenness, and texture. This is highly effective because the skin absorbs more of these growth factors as a result of microneedling treatment.
