Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy
An innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks with little downtime.
Fast and minimally invasive, skin needling stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin in the skin. The repair process begins almost immediately.

What Is Microneedling?
A 30-45minute skin rejuvenation process featuring state-of-the-art technology by Herbal Skin Solutions CIT pen, microneedling uses tiny needles to create hundreds of vertical microscopic channels in the skin. This process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself through the production of new collagen and elastin.
Resurfacing the top layers of the skin helps improve skin texture, provide a more even skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, stretch marks and acne scarring.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Safe and minimally invasive, microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro injuries in the skin. At Sweet Saffron, we utilize the Herbal Skin Solutions CIT system, which is gently pressed against your skin and uses straight needles to penetrate at a 90 degree angle.
This stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal by producing new collagen and elastin fibers, encouraging your skin to look and feel healthier. There is no tissue destruction with this treatment. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away.
What Does Microneedling Improve?
It can be safely used on all parts of the body the face, neck and décolletage (chest).
It helps to improve:
Sun damage (sun spots)
Age and brown spots
Fine lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
Large pore size
What Does It Feel Like?
I will apply a topical anesthetic prior to the treatment to minimize any discomfort. The high-speed motor of the CIT pen causes needle penetration to occur very quickly.
The sensation is often described as feeling like sandpaper or a cat’s tongue.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
It depends on the health of your skin and your desired results. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 3-6 microneedling treatments spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
When Will I See Results?
The healing process begins almost immediately, with your skin looking smoother and more radiant in a week following your microneedling treatment. Results are gradual, with incremental improvement with each microneedling treatment.
Is it safe for all skin types?
Yes, it is safe and effective for people of all skin shades and most skin types.
What will I look like after my microneedling treatment?
You’ll look like you have a sunburn following treatment. Most people take the day off and return to work the following day. For deeper treatments, redness may persist for several days or a week, and you may also experience slight pinprick bleeding that will stop immediately. For special events, we recommend planning for 7 days for a complete recovery.
