Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a unique treatment that can offer a minimally invasive solution for various skincare concerns. It is ideal for any clients looking to improve scars, boost collagen, encourage hair growth, reduce fine lines/wrinkles, shrink pore size, reduce stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, age spots, sun damage, skin tightening, and overall skin tone/texture.
The procedure entails using a small, hand- held device with tiny surgical steel needles that penetrate through your upper layer (epidermis) to the deepest layer of your skin (dermis) causing intentional micro-injuries. These micro-injuries trigger your body’s inflammatory response to kick in to repair the skin. Fibroblasts are stimulated which encourage the body to release growth factors whereby new collagen and elastin is produced at a quicker speed.
