Micro-Needling (also known as "Collagen Induction Therapy") is a technique comprising of tiny needles which are used to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. When these natural proteins are produced, they help to lift and tighten the skin while providing texture improvement for all ages and skin types without the downtime or trauma that is associated with laser or chemical treatments. Thus reversing and preventing the visible signs of aging. This is safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure which creates a series of micro channels on the skin, resulting in glowing, smoother and younger looking skin. This is accomplished by a controlled activation of the body's self-repair mechanism. Micro needling creates thousands of micro "injuries" in the skin, which trigger new collagen synthesis, without the risk of permanent scarring. The effects of the micro-needling can also be enhanced by specially-formulated gel’s that are applied before the treatment.
Micro-Needling is effective in reducing signs of aging on the face and neck (such as fine lines, wrinkles, and mild skin laxity), as well as minimizing the appearance of acne scars and other facial scarring. In addition Micro-needling can also reduce the prominence of stretch marks on some areas of the body.
Micro-Needling is a fairly pain-free treatment but can result in temporary sensitivity, swelling. itching or burning sensations, any of which should subside within a few hours.
Micro needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile Medical Device. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes, depending on the required treatment.
