Because microneedling breaks up pigment without using heat, it is the ideal treatment for those of us with age spots from sunny days gone by. Melasma, which is what I had in the pictures above, is characterized by large brown spots and patches of discoloration. As you can see from my photos above, results are amazing.

Collagen Induction Therapy, which is microneedling, is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate, tighten and tone the skin. It is fast becoming the favored modality by skin care professionals because it is cost effective and delivers superior results. It can be used to correct a variety of skin issues such as scars, wrinkles, age spots and stretch marks. The results appear natural because the body’s own healing response is activated.
