FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Q: DOES COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY HURT?
A:You will feel some pressure (scrathing feeling) but depending on the procedure the use of topical agents are available to make the procedure more comfortable

Q: WHAT WILL THE TREATED SKIN LOOK LIKE?
A: Treated skin will look like a sunburn when using the microneedling for about 12-24 hours. Skin must be kept clean and free of make-up within this period. I will be sending you home with a skin repair cream to use within this 24 hour period. After the time is up you can go back to your regular regimen, preferably a good quality product. 

Q: HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
A: The number of treatments required depends on the amount of collagen destruction currently in the skin or what your trying to achieve. Results may be seen with the first treatment, however for optimal results 4-6 treatments are usually required. Treatments are spaced out 4-6 weeks apart.

Q: HOW LONG TILL I SEE RESULTS?
A: Collagen and elastin fibers take 3 weeks to build and continue up to a year using proper skin care products like Hyaluronic acid and peptides along with regular visits to your esthetician, will help build additional collagen and provided overall skincare.

Q: WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?

A: Please review to the following list:
• No Retin A products or applications for 12 hours prior to your treatment
• No auto-immune therapies or treatments 12 hours prior to your treatment
