What is Micro-Needling
Micro-Needling, also known as skin needling or CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment performed in a professional setting. This non-invasive and non-ablative treatment stimulates skin healing and repair mechanism for ultimate skin rejuvenation.
Benefits Of Micro-Needling
Micro-needling is performed with a device called Dermapen which uses very fine needles to puncture the skin and create micro-wounds, which activates the skin repair and rejuvenation processes. This includes the production of more collagen and elastin for firmer, tighter skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles, and improving the appearance of scarring, stretch marks, and chickenpox scars.
When You Will See Best Results
Skin remodelling and new collagen synthesis is a natural process that occurs in the skin as a result of micro-needling. This process begins immediately after treatment and continues to work in the skin for 6-8 weeks. Therefore, the best results are seen 6-8 weeks after treatment.
Micro-needling is the gold standard of non-invasive rejuvenation treatments and the very best results are seen after a course of treatments. Depending on the skin condition treated, between 4 -10 treatments may be required. The best news is that the benefits of each micro-needling treatment continue to work in the skin for up to 12 months!
Prepping The Skin For Best Results
Skin that is well-cared for and in good condition will gain the best results. We recommend you have a good skincare routine established at least 2 weeks before commencing a course of micro-needling. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing morning and night with a good sunscreen used daily would be the absolute minimum.
Depending on the condition we are treating we may recommend additional products once you commence your course of micro-needling treatments. Powerful skin-rejuvenating serums or creams that contain copper peptides or vitamin C to assist with collagen production, healing, and skin recovery. The more effort you put into your skincare before and after each treatment the greater and longer-lasting results you will achieve.
