Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro Needling) in San Diego
Collagen induction therapy (micro needling) taps into the body’s healing capabilities to give patients more beautiful looking skin. This anti-aging treatment has risen to popularity among celebrities and people from all walks of life looking to address skin concerns ranging from sagging to acne scars. With no lengthy preparation procedures or post-treatment downtime required, this therapy can be easily incorporated into the schedules of even the most in-demand actors, CEO’s, models, and busy parents.
What Is Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro Needling)?
Micro needling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment most commonly used to address skin concerns on the face (though it can be used in other regions of the body). During collagen induction therapy, tiny incisions (or microtraumas) are created in the skin using a microneedle pen with very fine needles. This process stimulates blood flow and collagen production in the skin, resulting in smoother skin tone and texture, acne reduction, minimization of wrinkles, and more.
Collagen induction therapy can also be used as a complementary therapy with other regenerative treatments, such as platelet-rich-plasma. The small incisions caused by micro needling allow certain serums and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the skin when therapies are combined.
Who Can Benefit from Collagen Induction Therapy?
Collagen induction therapy, or micro needling, is a beauty treatment that can be used to treat a wide range of facial skin concerns, including:
- Facial Scars
- Acne Scars

- Uneven Skin Tone and Pigment Concerns

- Sun Spots (or Age Spots)
Micro needling has also shown promising results as a way to minimize stretch marks.

How Long Does Collagen Induction Therapy Last?
Micro needling treatments take about 120 minutes in total. First, a numbing cream is applied to the area being treated (most commonly the face) to minimize any discomfort caused by the small needles. After allowing the cream to penetrate the skin for roughly 30 to 60 minutes, the process of micro needling can begin. This part of the procedure lasts about 20 to 30 minutes. Afterwards, a hydrating mask and reparative cream may be applied to soothe the skin.
One of the things that makes collagen induction therapy a highly sought-after beauty treatment is that patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after receiving treatment. Minimal redness and itching are normal for a couple of days after receiving micro needling, but skin can be treated with cortisone cream or covered with foundation to alleviate these symptoms.
Patients often report seeing a noticeable difference in their skin the day after treatment, and the results typically last between 4 to 6 weeks. Follow-up or maintenance treatments can be scheduled based on each patient’s goals and the specific condition or concern being treated.
