The Benefits Of
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate your skin. Using a tiny, pen-like device with fine needles, the Doctor creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. In other words, it promotes active skin renewal, encouraging the body to firm and tighten the skin around these “micro-injuries”. Other amazing results include a reduction in scars (especially acne scars), pore size, and stretch marks.
This process is similar to fractional lasers and radio-frequency devices, but much more comfortable. The heat from lasers can be uncomfortable for some, and can potentially flare up conditions like melasma, rosacea, and can cause uneven darkening in the skin of color.
Repair Acne Scars
While lasers can be equally effective in treating acne scars, many patients prefer micro-needling because it's less painful and has less downtime.
Reverse Sun Damage
By stimulating this growth it’s possible to reduce sun damage and discoloration, including hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
Reduce Signs of Aging
This process can also tighten loose skin by encouraging the production of collagen in treated areas. Finally making it perfect for older men and women.
