Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure performed with a device containing fine needles. Each microneedle puncture triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. The result is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction of pore size, and stretch marks.
Microneedling is a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles and scars. The procedure can be repeated safely because the epidermis remains intact. This therapy is now becoming widely used as a treatment to enhance aged skin.
Microneedling is cost-effective, and can be done on areas of skin that may not be suitable for other treatments, such as around the eyes and mouth, hands, and chest. The procedure is well tolerated by patients, and it can be easily personalized by going deeper on some areas where skin damage requires a more aggressive approach.
