Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) can be used to improve texture, skin tone, scarring, stretchmarks, fine lines and wrinkles.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is the use of tiny needles to create micro channels
(tiny holes) in the top layer of the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to
heal itself and in the process produces collagen (strength) and elastin (firmness). This repair process does not hurt and begins almost immediately, resulting in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. It can be used on all skin types to treat acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks.
There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. 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, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results.
What To Expect
There may be some redness that appears several hours after the treatment, but any tenderness or discomfort is minimal. For the treatment of acne scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles, it is recommended you get treated every four to six weeks since it can take a few treatments to see results. It may also take several treatments to see better firmness or elasticity, but results can be long-lasting.
