Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has been used in Germany since 1905. The procedure relies on your body’s own healing powers and collagen production to improve skin tone and texture. At VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we use the SkinPen Precision, which is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. VIDA offers topical numbing for your comfort and is committed to going above and beyond to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
Microneedling works because the body’s natural reaction to controlled injury is to flush the area with natural growth factors and platelets that stimulate the healing process and essentially “make collagen.” Collagen is the body’s natural fountain of youth, but all of us produce less of it as we age.
