Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is quickly becoming one of the sought-after methods for skin rejuvenation. According to Google Trends, for de past 5 years, more people google “Microneedling” than they do “Chemical Peels” in the USA.
This minimally invasive treatment effectively addresses acne scars & other scar types, fine lines & wrinkles, uneven skin texture and hair loss.
How does it work?
A device with tiny sterile needles (micro-needles) is used to repeatedly puncture the skin at a controlled depth causing thousand of controlled micro-wounds (micro-channels) in the skin. This triggers the skin natural healing process, releasing numerous regenerative growth factors and cytokines. These GF and cytokines stimulate new collagen production, leading to skin remodeling, and also help to optimize skin cell function.
Why is Microneedling so popular?
- Scientifically proven benefits for numerous skin concerns
- Safety threshold for all skin colors
- Minimal downtime
- Minimal adverse reactions
However, optimal results are technique dependent and requires specialized training and in-depth knowledge of the skin.
