Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a versatile treatment applicable to a variety of skin concerns. These indications include but are not limited to scars/acne scars, skin impurities, large pore size, fine lines, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, laxity and hyperpigmentation.
natural restoration process
Microneedling is a treatment where very fine needles are used to create hundreds of controlled micro-injuries into the skin. These injuries stimulate the skin’s natural restoration processes, thus activating new collagen synthesis at a rate much greater than normal.
On the other hand, a variety of active solutions such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Hyaluronic Acid (HA), vitamins and mesotherapy cocktails are prepared and infused into the skin during the treatment, to further help strengthening, rejuvenation, and improvement of texture, colour, elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Microneedling is one the safest treatments that leads to unprecedented results with little or no downtime. Microneedling restores skin’s firmness and luminosity, resulting in smoother and younger looking skin.
When the skin begins to repair itself after a Microneedling treatment, the body naturally produces increased amounts of new collagen and elastin, which results in improved skin quality and volume and increased vascularization for an improved circulation and colour. Frequent microneedling will keep your skin acing as it does in your 20s, as a result will remain toned, radiant, and youthful.
Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) also has been reported to be a relatively risk-free, simple and effective treatment for scars and acne scars. The process of wound healing following inflammation, abscess growth, and/or rupture can result in the formation of acne scars. In clinical studies, it has been proven that Microneedling treatments enhance the natural healing process and collagen production; therefore it demonstrates a noticeable improvement in the appearance of acne scars.
Treatments may take 30-60 minutes, depending on the targeted area.
Typically, 4-8 treatments plus medical grade home-care products are recommended to achieve optimal results.
