Collagen Induction Therapy

Precision microneedling with Innopen for skin rejuvenation.

We perform Microneedling with the InnoPen Microneedling device from Clinical Resolutions. This handheld device uses sterile, disposable tips. Each tip contains 12 “micro” needles to pierce the skin at very specific therapeutic depths.  The thousands of tiny needle pricks stimulate collagen and elastin production, while also creating receptor sites which easily absorb a variety of available serums including powerful PRP transformational serum. Microneedling is sometimes referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy or Skin Needling.

  • How Many Treatments Do I Need?
    While you will see up to a 20%-25% fat reduction in the treated area after a single treatment, it depends on the person and the area being treated. Your provider will work with you to determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal.
  • Is the CoolSculpting® treatment right for me?
    CoolSculpting® is a fat-reduction treatment for men and women who want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas of their body (see FDA cleared areas for treatment). CoolSculpting® is NOT a weight loss procedure. CoolSculpting® is a nonsurgical alternative that has little to no downtime.
  • Can CoolSculpting® Reduce Fat On Every Part Of My Body?
    CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
  • What Happens During My CoolSculpting Treatment?
    The applicator will be placed on the treatment area and there will be a slight sucking sensation as it adheres to your body, followed by that signature cooling effect. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment. After the applicator is detached, your provider will do a brief massage on the area to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That’s it!
  • How Long Does The Treatment Take?
    Each CoolSculpting® treatment is different, so it depends on which areas of the body and how many of them you plan on doing. Depending on the area, treatment can be done in as little as 35 minutes - 45 minutes
  • When Will I See The Results?
    You’ll start to see changes as soon as 1-3 months post-treatment. Final results may take 6 months or more.
  • How Much Does It Cost?
    That all depends on what areas you treat and how many treatments you have. Many patients choose to do CoolSculpting® on multiple areas to reach their ideal end result. Typically, CoolSculpting® will cost anywhere between $2000-$4000 for a personalized treatment plan. When you meet with a CoolSculpting® consultant here at Contours, they will work with you to find a personalized treatment that fits your body and your budget.
  • What Happens To The Frozen Fat Cells?
    CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis, which is just a technical way to say fat-freezing. When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s natural process. Don’t worry: This process happens so gradually, you won’t necessarily notice a difference in your day-to-day life.
