Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive treatment that works on many skin conditions, including acne scars and wrinkles. This treatment is an alternative to other invasive treatments to heal the skin naturally, without the use of toxins or surgery.
Unlike laser therapy that can burn the skin, microneedling gently establishes controlled micro traumas to the area being treated, enabling a higher production of collagen and elastin, which is vital for skin health. While these micro traumas open the pores for better breathability, they also generate microchannels which allow for 200% greater product absorption.
When used as recommended, microneedling can treat a plethora of skin conditions, including:
Microneedling is safe and effective on all skin types – oily, dry, normal and a combination of the three.
The procedure will be begin by first cleansing the skin. Then a topical anesthetic numbing cream will be applied to the treated area for 20 minutes to ensure the patient is comfortable for the entire treatment. Then the microneedling will begin. During the procedure, a medical-grade hyaluronic acid will be applied to the skin. Microneedling allows topical serums to penetrate deeply and are absorbed 200x their normal rate.
After microneedling, the skin may be sensitive and red but should not last longer than a few days. Immediate results of the treatment are a noticeable glow and tightening of the skin. The final results of this treatment are not fully seen immediately. The process of the skin cycle takes 28 days to regenerate skin cells. During that time, your skin will see a beautiful, rejuvenated effect. Follow aftercare instructions and apply serum for best results post-treatment.
Microneedling creates micro traumas in the skin which cause a reaction in the body to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two key elements in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients levels of discomfort vary. For the majority of patients micro needling is mildly uncomfortable. The use of a topical numbing cream is one of the first steps of treatment to insure that the patient is comfortable during the treatment.
The number of treatments depends on the skin condition being treated. We recommend a series of treatments that can range from 3 to 9 visits. Microneedling treatments are done once monthly in the series.
