Microneedling also called collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. This procedure involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles, invisible vertical micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis is performed.
The skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and it starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro perforations. This is a natural self-repairing process of your skin. The skin will renew from the inside out.
Through the process of neovascularization (new blood vessel formation) and neocollagenesis (new collagen formation) your skin will become firmer and regain elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, pores become finer and overall circulation is stimulates which improves the condition of your skin.
This procedure is indicated for fine lines, moderate wrinkles, acne scaring, stretch marks, traumatic scars, skin pigmentation and mild rosacea.
The number of treatments depends on the indication of the procedure; it can range from 4 to 6 sessions.
