The new way to make collagen.
Micro Needling therapy also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Skin needling, and Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and also stretch marks.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. We use the automated MicroPen with sterile single-use disposable needle tips, so that there is no potential for cross-contaminator between patients because there is never a re-use of needles.
There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We will employ various topical depending upon your needs: hyaluronic serums, lightening or bleaching serums, stem cells to multiply new young cells, and vitamin C to strengthen and boost antioxidants.
What does microneedling feel like?
The high-speed motor causes the needle penetration to occur very quickly which means it will feel more like a sandpaper sensation than needles. Some patients describe it as similar to the feel of a cat’s tongue.
The number of needling sessions depends on the individual skin condition.
