What is Micro-Needling?
Medical Micro-Needling of skin, also referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a relatively new concept aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen and elastin production to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.
How does it work?
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results improving dermis, softened wrinkle, and scars.
There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness which heals after few days.
What areas of the skin can be treated?
Wrinkles and fine lines around the face, neck and decollate. Acne scars, surgical scars, burn scars, stretch marks, sun/age spots on the face and hands, etc.
How many treatments are needed?
It is highly recommended to prepare for 4 – 6 treatments (dependent on the condition of the skin), For optimal results, treatments should be spaced 4 – 5 weeks apart.
