Micro-needling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI) is a non-invasive procedure that reduces the signs of aging, minimizes scarring, boosts collagen production, reduces hyperpigmentation and pore size, prevents premature aging, treats stretch marks, minimizes the appearance of age spots, helps improve texture and improves the appearance of rosacea.
Why Should I Consider the Micro-Needling Procedure?
The mechanical action of the pen creates tiny channels at a specific controlled depth that triggers the body’s natural healing process to fill these micro channels by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.
About the Micro-Needling with PRP Procedure
Combining micro-needling with the body’s own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is used to kick start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro-channels is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in the PRP.
PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. It is crucial to healing which is why PRP is applied topically during and after the micro-needling procedure to ensure that the PRP gets fully absorbed. The PRP supercharges the micro-needling benefits, virtually eliminating side effects and speeding up recovery time.
Why Should I Consider Micro-needling?
With Micro-needling, the top layer of the skin is penetrated without being damaged, leaving the skin intact. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted so the pen has the ability to rejuvenate not only the face, but the body as well. Micro-needling will consistently trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved, and you can see results for up to a year post micro-needling session. Micro-needling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Unlike many ablative procedures, micro-needling has very few contraindications and is safe to use on all ethnicities and has very little downtime or side effects.
