Like its name – microneedling also known as C I T collagen induction therapy, this is a minimal invasive treatment that addresses concerns such as signs of premature ageing, acne scarring, stretch marks and even hair loss.
Using a fine needling device we create tiny wounds in the skin between 0.25 to 1.5 millimetres in depth.
It works by triggering your body’s wound healing process. During this process the healthy tissue surrounding the wound responds to repair the damage – thus triggering the production of collagen and elastin cells to help re build the skins dermal structure (hence the name derma pen is sometimes used not only as a brand name but as a description of the method of treatment). The rebuilding of the dermal layers in this way helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and irregular texture such as stretch marks and acne scarring.
