Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a small, handheld device with tiny needles that penetrate the skin to create controlled micro-injuries.
This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which helps to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin.
What to expect
During a micro-needling treatment, the device is rolled over the skin, creating hundreds of microscopic punctures that penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The procedure can be done on the face, neck, and other areas of the body where skin damage and signs of aging are present.
The benefits of micro-needling are numerous and include improvements in skin texture, firmness, and elasticity. It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other types of skin damage.
It is a safe and effective procedure that can be performed by a trained professional in a clinical setting. The needles used in the device are very small, and the depth of penetration can be adjusted based on the specific needs of the patient. This process typically takes less than an hour, and most patients experience only minor discomfort during and after the treatment.
Take care of your skin after Micro-Needling
Once the procedure is done, it is essential to follow a proper skincare regimen to help maximize the benefits of the treatment. This may include the use of a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen, as well as avoiding harsh skincare products or excessive sun exposure.
Overall, micro-needling is an effective way to improve the health of your skin and reduce the signs of aging and damage. With its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production, it is a safe and effective alternative to more invasive procedures such as facelifts or laser resurfacing.
