Also called skin needling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles.
Microneedling helps to induce collagen synthesis, while maintaining the integrity of the top most layer of the skin. This leads to superior results in skin rejuvenation, anti‐scarring or anti‐stretch mark treatments. It is is a non-ablative treatment acting on the surface of the skin without damaging other important structures such as blood vessels or nerves.
Medical microneedling is also one of the few skin therapies that are suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin, and which can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eye and on the neck. The procedure has been shown to initiate collagen formation and the healing cascade without causing hyperpigmentation.
IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR THE TREATMENT OF:
- Wrinkles and scars,
- To improve the skin’s appearance and quality
- Photodamaged skin
- Suitable to treat regions where laser treatments and deep peels are not typically performed
Depending on the initial skin condition and the anticipated procedure result, Skin Needling procedures can be repeated without limit every 5-6 week intervals to allow for maximum new collagen deposition and assessment of the single treatment results, however, collagen formation can continue for up to 12 months after one treatment.
