Treatments with a micro needle pen do not burn the skin (like laser), dissolve it (like chemical peels), or abrade and scrape it (like dermabrasion). Microneedling gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen production.
What Microneedling Can Treat:
- Acne Scars
- Fine Lines & Moderate wrinkles
- Skin Laxity
- Pore Size
- Texture, Tone, Color
- Stretch Marks
- Traumatic Scars
- Photo Aging & Sun Damage
- Hyperpigmentation & Hypopigmentation
- Hair Loss
- Drug Delivery
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.
With Microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged, leaving the skin intact. It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.
Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
