Collagen Induction Therapy

What is Microneedling Therapy?

Microneedling therapy, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure
that involves the use of a device with fine needles rooted in it.

The needles are used to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, creating a microscopic wound which prompts the body to create new collagen and elastin to fill these tiny. Through the process, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

Microneedling can be used for:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

With Microneedling you can expect to see significant improvement due to the fact it promotes natural elastin and collagen. Minimization in wrinkles, fine lines and scars will all be remarkably noticeable.

Premature Skin Aging

Microneedling does the same function with premature skin aging as with fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen and elastin growth. When the skin thickens and the avoidance of collagen breakdown occurs, the aging process slows down.

Scars

If you are one of the many people that suffer from acne scars or any scarring on the skin for that matter, then Microneedling is the solution for you. It is proven to immensely improve or even fade out the majority of scarring with the exception of keloid scars. (This is an irregular growth of scar tissue that escalates beyond the top skin surface) With the stimulation of collagen and elastin from Microneedling, it will lead to normal, healthy skin.

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are always a little more stubborn to treat than regular scarring, however there have been numerous reports from clients who have been very happy with the results from Microneedling. One does usually need more treatments with stretch marks and for deeper stretch marks, 4-12 treatments are usually required in order to start seeing visible results.  

 

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which small areas of the skin become darker than the rest. Unusually dark patches of skin develop when the skin cells in those areas start producing too much melanin. Over activity of the melanin-producing cells can be triggered by a variety of causes, including certain medical conditions and medications. Microneedling helps minimize hyperpigmentation by shedding the top layer of the skin and produce normal melanocyte. It is very safe for anyone who has a darker skin tone. It does not lead to the loss of skin pigment.

Age Spots

Just as with hyperpigmentation, Microneedling also sheds the top layer of the skin and reduces the appearance of age spots.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition that affects parts of your face. Symptoms can include facial flushing, facial redness, spots, thickening of your skin, and eye problems such as dry eyes and sore eyelids. Rosacea also leads to breakdown of collagen however with Microneedling treatment, it will produce a large amount of collagen and improve the condition immensely. Do not perform Microneedling if you currently have nodular or pustular rosacea.

Acne

Another huge benefit with Microneedling, is that when paired with skin products, the punctures allow the ingredients of the product to better absorb into the skin, making the treatment a great option for people who suffer from acne. If you have any topical acne treatment, Microneedling will boost the absorption directly into the treated area. If you suffer from acne, you will notice a huge difference as your skin will clear up tremendously. Do not attempt derma roller at home with Acne as you may not know when your skin is irritated and you may cause it to spread further. It is always better to get an Aesthetician to perform Microneedling as they know exactly what to look out for.
