Micro-needling therapy, also knows as skin needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a cost effective and non-invasive rejuvenation treatment that maximizes penetration of essential cell nutrients and maximizes release of growth factors such as collagen and elastin.
Using a hand held device, a fine needle enters the skin vertically, creating micro-channels within the skin. This creates a controlled wound stimulated by the action of the osculating needles. The small lacerations created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products used during the procedure, enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin. This allows stimulation of collagen helping in reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and allowing overall rejuvenation of skin.
Micro-needling is just what you need to keep you looking fresh and young, and with little to no downtime. Optimal results are achieved with a series of treatments. An individualized at-home regimen is ALWAYS recommended by our specialists based on your personal needs.
Please Note: Micro-needling treatment may provide a temporary reddening for up to 24-48 hours post-treatment, depending upon client’s skin. It may also create a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Some pinpoint bleeding may occur with a deeper treatment. You may also experience mild inflammation for 2-4 days maximum, depending on skin type and condition.
This is a highly effective anti-aging treatment that:
- Smooths wrinkles
- Tightens and lifts skin
- Visibly reduces pores
- Lightens and brightens
- Stimulates collagen and elasticity
