Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), better known as microneedling, has been a popularly used cosmetic procedure since the 1990's. It helps with a wide assortment of skin concerns and has become a popular cosmetic treatment worldwide. If you are looking to smooth out the texture of your skin, or recover from deep scars that have formed from acne, microneedling is a great treatment to heal said issues.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny, microscopic shallow needles to penetrate the outer layer of the skin. These microscopic needles target the dermis layer of the skin where the production of collagen is present. By triggering collagen production with microscopic needles, not only is the surface exfoliated, but the healing process that the skin goes through is boosted and sped up. This results in a faster cell turnover rate that leaves you with soft, plump skin. Microneedling has been used to treat skin concerns such as:
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Excess sebum production
- Scarring on the skin
- Stretch marks
- And more!
This innovative skin care treatment can be applied not only to the face but to other areas of the body. A professional consultation with one of our skincare specialists is the best way to create a customized solution based on your exact skin concern and skin type. Most microneedling procedures are also pared with other topical treatments to improve the final result of the session.
Pairing Products with Microneedling
Each and every microneedling procedure is catered to the specific needs of a client. It will all depend on ones specific clinical/skincare concerns, and in turn, different topical products may be applied to the treatment area. Creams and serums penetrate the dermis much more efficiently during the microneedling process, which is why we prefer to pair skin boosters along with the microneedling treatment.
In addition to an in-clinic application, follow up application of topical creams and serums at home is equally important. This will ensure your skin has the best chance of healing and providing the results you desire. Microneedling is slightly uncomfortable but not overly painful. Prior to your procedure, we will apply a gentle numbing cream to the treatment area to limit any discomfort.
It is normal for a small amount of bleeding to occur in the treatment area. This side effect should last no more than 30 minutes once the treatment is complete. Some clients may notice mild scabbing along the treatment area that usually will heal within a week. Aside from these minor discomforts, there are no other side effects from the microneedling process. One advantage microneedling has over laser skin treatments is that they can be used on any skin tone with equal success.
