Microneedling therapy (also called Collagen Induction Therapy), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin which creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. It is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures.
This treatment is effectively used for:
Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
Reducing the appearance of scars
Hyperpigmentation e.g. in Melasma
Tightening sagging skin
Reduction in pore size
Improved skin texture, firmness and hydration
The skin is punctured in a specific pattern using a skin needling device. The device is rolled over the skin multiple times for best results. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound stimulating skin cell regeneration. For optimum results, treatments should be scheduled 2-4 weeks apart until the desired clinical effect is achieved.
