What is Micro-needling? Micro-needling that is also known as CIT (collagen induction therapy) is a process that employs the use of a small needling device (similar to a large pen) to create tiny holes (micro-channels) in the skin. These micro-channels can help stimulate the skin’s natural healing properties by producing collagen and elastin.
The skin’s natural repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles and many other skin problems.
Microneedling is for sure an innovation in the aesthetic field, treating everything from: acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, surgery scars, loose skin and also improving the skin’s overall appearance.
Micro-needling doesn’t only improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, also it allows for faster and deeper penetration of topical creams, gels and serums, potentially producing better results from these products.
After all, who wants to expend lots of money on expensive serums and moisturizers if not much will be absorbed by the skin right?
How Does Micro- needling procedure work?
Before the procedure begins, the aesthetician cleanse the skin and applies a numbing solution to the whole area to be treated, and that will reduce any discomfort during the Micronnedling procedure.
During the procedure, the Micro-Needling device slides along the area, penetrating the upper layers of the skin at a depth of 1 to 2.5 millimeters.
This results in the creation of
numerous micro-channels and the creation of collagen and elastin.
The area treated may experience some mild redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding. The bleeding usually ends almost immediately, and the redness or swelling is reduced significantly within hours of the procedure, but it might take 12 to 48 hours for the skin to return to normal.
Within a couple of weeks, the skin is smoother and more radiant
looking, and it might take a few months to see the full effects of this
spectacular beauty treatment. Call us today and make a complimentary appointment and discover why Micro-needling is the best treatment for you and your skin concerns.
