At Vitality, microneedling involves a fine-needle pen called rejuvapen that creates tiny injuries in the top layer of the skin. This is also known as collagen induction therapy. Prior to the treatment, custom made numbing cream is applied topically to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. An application of hydrating serum or the patient’s own platelet-rich-plasma, for optimum results, is also used.
Healing promotes collagen production, which helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
