Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is the latest, minimally invasive treatment that works to rejuvenate the skin. The procedure involves the usage of a specific device that contains various fine needles designed to roll on the top layer of the skin and leaving tiny, invisible puncture wounds. These “wounds” are micro injuries that will stimulate the body’s healing process, consequently increasing the amount of collagen and elastin production happening in that area of the skin.
It is minimally painful and shockingly effective! Now what are the benefits? Microneedling has the potential to reduce the fine lines and deep wrinkles, repairs the visible scars from past acne, reverses past sun damage and pigmentation, helping the aging skin slow down and shrink pores making it more effective and easy for other beauty products you may use to bring you the results you need.
After you get done with microneedling, we will apply moisturizers and sunscreen. It is important that when you leave the clinic, you apply an approved sunscreen of at least SPF30 and avoid anything that will make your skin dry. You can proceed to your normal makeup routine a day after treatment is done. Do not take any anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin or Advil, since they might interfere with the natural healing process microneedling tries to create.
