Medical Micro-needling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. This treatment is ideal for those looking to reduce the visibility of acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Micro-needling injures the skin, stimulating the need for the skin to heal resulting in cell reproduction causing the formation of new collagen which often results in thicker and firmer – younger looking skin.
How Medical Micro-Needling Works
Performed exclusively by Dr. Christopher Pavlou at our Vancouver spa, a fine needled device is used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin, causing the cells to regenerate and repair. This process will stimulate collagen production and improve blood supply resulting in improved skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, wrinkles, stretch marks and more.
We recommend a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks between Medical Micro-Needling treatments as this is the amount of time it takes for new collagen to form. For optimal results, we pair our Micro-Needling treatment with both of our acne and anti-aging chemical peel treatments.
