Micro-needling, also known as CIT or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally-invasive, in-office procedure that has recently been gaining acclamation in the media and within the medical community. The treatment involves the use of a device containing small, sterile needles which puncture the skin at various depths and create a controlled tissue injury. This microscopic tissue injury triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin, both important proteins for skin regeneration. This treatment is usually combined with PRP therapy (see our segment on PRP) for best results. You may have heard of this combo therapy referred to as the “Vampire Facial”, a treatment loved by celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaeli!

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy
PRP therapy is a multifactorial medical treatment that has recently been taking over the cosmetic world! PRP therapy involves using the patient’s own platelets, which contains essential growth factors, to increase collagen production and promote stem cell proliferation. We use this therapy for hair restoration (see our section on hair restoration) as well as skin rejuvenation (see our section on microneedling).
