Microneedling for Acne Coquitlam Port Moody

Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy in Coquitlam Port Moody



Microneedling is a skin-rejuvenating procedure in which tiny needles create punctures in the top layer of skin with the goal of improving overall skin texture.


Microneedling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color –

During this procedure, the treatment device is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Microneedling also creates micro-channels that allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.

A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Microneedling pen –

Your skin-care professional will apply vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid ( a natural product that already exists in your skin) to your skin and select the appropriate pen position based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
