Micro needling: Collagen Induction Therapy
Micro needling is a derma roller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin.
The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Micro needling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
Micro needling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.
It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health.
The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant.
You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.
THE BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING (COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY)
The treatable issues and possibilities for skin rejuvenation are plentiful when it comes to micro needling (also referred to as derma rolling). Using a device with a small cluster of needles, micro needling causes micro-trauma to the skin at a cellular level (without causing visible open wounds), which in turn stimulate the body’s natural healing process to produce collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful looking skin. The process involves minimal pain, little down time and noticeable results in as few as 3-6 treatments. Results may continue to improve for several weeks after the treatment as collagen production continues. While we are constantly aging, the benefits of collagen induction therapy can remain for 5-7 years following (for anti-aging treatments). Some patients choose to come for only a single treatment, once per year, to achieve maintenance results.
