Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, refers to the medical aesthetic treatment whereby a controlled micro-trauma is induced in the skin.
A Handheld device with very small needles is used to prick the skin and create many microchannels in the area treated. Through these microchannels a specialized medical cocktail of serums is infused into the deeper layers of the skin, bringing about physiological changes in the skin. Through the healing/repair that is brought on by the treatment, new skin formation, together with new collagen and elastin are stimulated.
This is a great and simple way, yet very effective way of resurfacing the skin to yield a younger, healthier and more luminous skin tone.
Microneedling is recommended for a variety of skin conditions:
Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery and thermal burns
Fading stretch marks
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Pigmentation disorders such as Melasma and hyperpigmentation.
Tightening of saggy skin
Refinement of skin texture and enlarged pores.
It is important to get a comprehensive skin analysis and consultation with a medical professional before embarking on any minimally invasive procedure.
