Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a cutting-edge, minimally invasive anti-aging and anti-wrinkling treatment that naturally rejuvenates the skin through regenerative healing. The therapy targets acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite and loose skin.
If you are looking for a fairly non-invasive way with minimal downtime to improve the appearance of your skin, micro-needling is a great way to go. It stimulates collagen beneath the surface to not only reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but firms the skin as well.
Microneedling isn’t exclusive to just the face area. The treatment can be done anywhere the skin on the body needs to be thickened, particularly those that have stretch marks, like the legs, chest, or butt, and 4 to 6 sessions on average usually do the trick.
Micro needling is a technique where a fractional micro needling device with fine micro needles has been shown to increase the remodeling of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the bodies wound healing cascade. It is also referred to as non-ablative. This means the deeper parts of the skin are treated without removing the top layer of skin. The skin clumps and thickens in response to this new stimulus.
