Collagen Induction Therapy in ABQ: Microneedling for Fine Lines and Scars
What is Microneedling and How Does it Work for ABQ Residents?
Microneedling is a skin procedure that uses tiny needles to create punctures in the skin, encouraging the body’s collagen and elastin production, leading to younger and smoother-looking skin.
We love microneedling because it targets the source of many skin issues: collagen. In fact, microneedling is also called Collagen Induction Therapy.
What Can Microneedling Treat in Albuquerque?
Microneedling is used to treat a variety of skin conditions that cause depressions in the skin such as acne scarring, surgical scars, a variety of other scars, burns, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and stretch marks. However, the procedure is less efficient on deep, narrow “ice-pick” acne scars than on broader ones.
At the Injection and Infusion Clinic of ABQ, our microneedling sessions can reduce fine lines, scars, photo-aging, skin discolorations, and melasma/dark skin patches, revitalize skin, and improve skin texture , as well as stretch marks.
Microneedling allows the skin to appear revitalized and glowing. GHK-Cu, a revolutionary peptide that declines with age, is formulated with a slightly acidic pH to readily penetrate the outer layer of the skin, matching the slightly acidic nature of the skin.
GHK-Cu stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, collagen, and other extracellular matrix molecules involved in tissue remodeling and healing.

How Long Do Microneedling Results Last in Albuquerque?
In general, you can expect the results of SkinPen microneedling to last for four to six weeks. The longevity of these results can be attributed to the length of your natural cellular turnover cycle, as well as how long newly produced collagen can last in the skin.
Is Microneedling Worth Doing in Albuquerque?
Microneedling is not the cheapest beauty method, but the results it can help you to achieve make it absolutely worth it, provided you get it at the right price and at the right place.
What to Expect During and After Microneedling: Results and Recovery in ABQ
Most of our patients notice improvements in their skin just one short week after the procedure, including improved skin tone, a reduction in acne visibility, and improved skin texture.
After your session, you will only experience mild redness, and your skin will appear “tight.” It may look like you have a mild sunburn, and this lasts for about 24 hours. We recommend you avoid strenuous workouts after your session because the generated heat can be uncomfortable. In some cases, there is the chance of experiencing some peeling, itchiness, and bleeding which are all normal potential effects.
To ensure the best results, we recommend that you avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplements, high-sodium foods, high-sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your microneedling session.
All of these factors increase the risk of bruising and swelling. It is crucial to avoid harmful UV ray exposure from direct sunlight and tanning beds for the five days before your session as well.
You will also want to refrain from using abrasive skincare products, such as retinol, exfoliants, topical antibiotics, and acids, for at least 48 hours before microneedling.
