Are these Services right for you?

Did you know collagen production decreases at a rate of 1% yearly starting at the age of 25? Our collagen building services and products will stimulate your own body for repair and renewal.

Why Collagen Building?

Collagen building works over time with your body to help the underlying structure of your skin.

This results in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing your skin and restoring a more youthful appearance.

These treatments will give you results you will see weeks to months after your treatment and can last years!

What are the benefits of stimulating collagen?

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that is the most important building block of our skin. It makes up a significant portion of the extracellular matrix, which acts as a natural support layer for our skin’s surface. That is why collagen loss can result in facial hallowing and sagging. Stimulating our body’s natural production can provide additional support, allowing for smoother, more younger looking skin,

Are collagen building treatments right for me?

Everyone benefits from replacing lost collagen so everyone is a candidate. One session of SkinPen MicroNeedling is shown to replace a years worth of lost collagen. Sculptra has been shown to improve collagen up to 24 months or longer.

Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) is generally a safe and effective procedure that can improve the appearance of the skin. It may reduce wrinkles, diminish scarring, and tighten or rejuvenate loose or aging skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our collagen sessions range from 60 minutes to 2 hours depending on the service we decide on and the areas to be treated. 

SkinPen Microneedling will have between 2-4 days of down time. You will feel tight and experience some flaking the first week post treatment. 

Sculptra should be minimal downtime. We do have a rule of 5. You must massage the areas done fro 5 min, 5 times, for 5 days. 

PRP has minimal downtime, however you may experience some swelling in the area, which is what we want to help create repair. 

You may experience slight bruising in the injection site. We ask that you refrain from exercise for 24 hours and follow the specific post care given you. 

You will only get better with time. Collagen takes time, so you must be patient. 

We schedule follow up appointments based on the treatment plan. Usually we recommend a series of 3 spaced 4-6 weeks apart for SkinPen Microneedling and PRP, and Sculptra is spaced 6-8 weeks apart based on your needs. 

SkinPen Microneedling starts at $300 for a single session and you save when you purchase a package upfront. Sculptra begins at $800 a vial and you save when you purchase more at once. You are able to bank your purchases. PRP begins at $200 for add-on and $400 for a stand alone treatment, again when you purchase a package you save. Final cost is to be determined on the amount of collagen lost and treatment goals.
