Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

THE BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING 
(COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY)

The treatable issues and possibilities for skin rejuvenation are plentiful when it comes to microneedling (also referred to as derma rolling). Using a device with a small cluster of needles, microneedling causes micro-trauma to the skin at a cellular level (without causing visible open wounds), which in turn stimulate the body's natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful looking skin. The process involves minimal pain, little down time and noticeable results in as few as 3-6 treatments. Results may continue to improve for several weeks after the treatment as collagen production continues. While we are constantly aging, the benefits of collagen induction therapy can remain for 5-7 years following (for anti-aging treatments). Some patients choose to come for only a single treatment, once per year, to achieve maintenance results.

What's Different About Microneedling at Candid Cosmedics?

 

At Candid Cosmedics, we use high potency medical grade serums containing Stem Cell and Growth Factor Cytokines derived from conditioned human bone marrow - the most natural and powerful option to reduce inflammation, shorten healing time, promote less fibrotic tissue and enhance more youthful skin. With young skin, our naturally occurring stem cells are robust and responsive, keeping skin smooth, elastic, and radiant. But as we age, we have fewer of these cells available to repair skin damage. Over time this damage adds up and our skin health deteriorates. Peer-reviewed research indicates that growth factors are the highest level of optimization in anti-aging skincare. 

 

As a non-ablative, non-thermal treatment, microneedling does not remove the top layer of the skin. Certain laser treatments done repeatedly over time can damage fibroblast cells and lead to a thinner epidermis. Microneedling may help to increase the thickness of the skin and repair this damage. Following your procedure, when paired with the right skin care products, the temporary micro-channels created allow the ingredients of the products to better absorb into the skin. We offer aftercare containing these powerhouse ingredients (Stem Cell and Growth Factor Cytokines) to enhance the healing process and maintain noticeable long term results.

If you want the ultimate and natural rejuvenating treatment and booster for your skin, then microneedling could be just for you. Are you interested to experience the benefits for yourself?
