It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen as you age. Medical Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), this procedure treats acne scars, fine lines, large pores, uneven skin tone, and stretch marks.
How it Works
Medical Microneedling should only be performed by a licensed skin specialist under the supervision of a Board-Certified Dermatologist. Your licensed skin specialist makes microperforations in the skin with a medical grade device allowing the licensed skin specialist to perform at the depth needed for optimal results. The skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue that has more even tone and texture. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, increased collagen also helps make the skin firmer.
What to Expect
Medical Microneedling requires no downtime, but patients should expect some redness for a few days following their procedure. Ideal results are achieved after a series of 3-4 sessions, however individual results vary.
Who Benefits from Medical Microneedling?
Candidates for this procedure should be in good health, and not be pregnant or breast feeding.
Medical Microneedling can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to enhance your overall results.
