Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage and hands.
Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. Micro needling is performed with a surgical grade instrument with stainless steel micro needles ranging from 0.5mm to 1.5mm in length. Scaring is treated with needles up to 2mm.
The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and you may see only redness or experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately. This healing process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars.
