Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy in Coquitlam Port Moody
Skin Microneedling is a rejuvenating procedure in which tiny needles create microscopic punctures in the top layer of the skin with the goal of improving overall skin texture.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
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.
HOW IS THE MICRONEEDLING PROCEDURE?
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 gently be pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments with Vitamin C and HA spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 3 more sessions with PRP at 4-6 week intervals.

Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
