Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for the treatment and improvement of fine lines, acne scars, skin texture and tone. It is appropriate for all parts of the body including face, neck, decollate, arms, hands, legs and back.
At Renuance in the Riverside County area, we use the the Bellus Medical SkinPen Precision which is the only FDA approved microneedling device. Prior to treatment the skin is prepared with a topical numbing cream. The Skinpen, which has several tiny needles on a disposable, one-time use tip, is rolled over the face or area of concern creating controlled micro-injuries. The micro-injuries stimulate new collagen growth. Collagen is a structural protein that provides our skin with firmness and tone and is a key factor in youthful, healthy appearing skin.
Best results are obtained with multiple treatments and can be enhanced with the addition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and a quality home skin care regimen. We have skin care consultants available and ready to assist you with your own personalized skin care regimen.
