It’s All About Collagen!

MicroNeedling a.k.a Collagen Induction Therapy with the INNOPen

What is MicroNeedling?
Also called Collagen Induction Therapy, this technique uses a hand-held device to create micro channels in your skin that reach the lower levels of your epidermis and dermis. InnopenOnce the micro channels are created, several specialized serums are applied such as growth factors, stem cells, peptides, and Vitamin C which further aid the repair and collagen-induction process. All of this combined triggers your body to create collagen and elastin and dramatically improves your skin from the inside out. Results include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

SpaByKelly uses the INNOPen, a medical grade microneedling pen, along with a stamping technique that virtually eliminates the epidermal trauma and risks associated with some other devices and techniques. Your treatment is then finished with the application of a soothing, calming masque which reduces any minor redness and/or irritation created during the process.

What should I expect post-treatment?
Significant healing takes place within the first 2 hours. It is possible that some minor pinpoint bleeding or redness might be visible for 24 hours (48 for extremely sensitive skin). Make-up should be avoided for the first 48 hours and then your normal mineral make-up routine can be resumed.

Over the course of the next month, the fibroblasts continue to produce collagen to create a youthful and firm but supple texture to the skin.

There can still be improvements to the skin for up to 4-6 months after treatment as further collagen is produced.

How many treatments do I need?
Typically you will see results after one treatment, however an initial series of 3-4 treatments spaced every 6 weeks is advised for optimal results and repair. Significant changes are evident after the 3rd session. A ‘maintenance’ schedule of 1-2 times per year is sufficient for most clients. In the cases of deep wrinkling and scarring or more advanced photo-aging, a more aggressive protocol might be recommended.

Does it hurt?
All treatments begin with a numbing cream. Some light pressure may be felt and some areas may feel more sensitive than others. The stamping technique of the INNOpen are very easily tolerated by most clients.

How much does it cost?
MicroNeedling is $250/session. Clients who pay in advance for a series of 3 or receive 3 treatments within 5 months will receive a FREE Stem Cell Neck Lift.
