Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that can improve the overall appearance of the skin with minimal down-time. The micro-needling process involves the creation of microscopic channels through the surface of the skin, which leads to formation of new tissue and releases the skin’s natural growth factors which promotes scar and hyperpigmentation repair and healing. This can be enhanced by application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), growth factor gels, kojic acid, and hyaluronic acid based skin rejuvenation treatments.
By creating minor skin injury during the procedure, the skin’s natural healing process initiates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers that thicken the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and stretch marks.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN MICRO-NEEDLING IMPROVE?
Micro-Needle based procedures can be used to effectively treat a variety of issues including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage and aging spots
- Light to moderate acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Issues with skin texture or pore size
- Post-surgical scarring
