Roll back the years with Micro Needling.
What is it and how does it work?
Micro Needling, also called Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an aesthetic medical procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (micro needling the skin) in order to induce endogenous production of cutaneous collagen.
Percutaneous collagen induction ( PCI ) therapy or medical micro needling is a technique where a fractional Micro Needling device with fine microneedles has been shown to increase the remolding of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling). It is also referred to as a non-ablative skin treatment. This means that the deeper parts of the skin are treated without removing the top layer of skin. It is designed to treat various skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, light scarring from acne and photo damage, and to improve skin color and other skin texture changes.
What is the principal behind Micro Needling:
Micro Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled Non-Thermal injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen fibers (neo-collagenesis) as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes. It can be used off-label to perform treatments that improve the delivery of drugs (Cosmeceuticals-MesoMedica® Solutions and biological materials such as Density Platelet Gel PRP). Whenever we can generate openings in the skin we have an opportunity for topical to penetrate more readily through the channels created.
Benefits Of Micro Needling
Skin Needling with a derma roller is a relatively simple way to target skin concerns such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, cellulite or stretch marks. When the ultra-fine skin-needling roller passes over the skin it triggers the skin’s natural healing response, which includes stimulating new collagen production that assists a firmer, tighter looking skin with diminished lines and wrinkles. The roller needles are more like acupuncture needles in their size so there is no injury to the skin as you would see with a traditional needle.
Summary of the Benefits:
- No skin damage
- No skin sensitivity to UV light so you do not have to avoid the sun like some other treatments Short healing time (no downtime)
Results Of The Treatment:
- Firmer and tighter skin
- Wrinkles, lines and folds will show improvement
- Improved skin texture and reduced pore size
- Reduced depth of indented acne or chicken pox scars
- Lightened pigmentation marks and brighter skin tone
- Improved appearance of stretch marks and cellulite (if this is your talk to us and we will modify the package for you to include some
