Micro Needling

CITCollagen Induction Therapy more commonly known as Micro Needling or Skin Needling is ever growing in popularity as an all round solution for your beauty regime.

It can be used to help alleviate acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, melasma, wrinkling and aging of the skin.

MicroNeedling stimulates the skin’s own natural recovery mechanism which in turn produces collagen and elastin, which repair the micro-wounds placed in the skin layers. If you have ever wanted to have facial rejuvenation in a completely NATURAL way then MicroNeedling is for you!. The skin will gradually become firmer and have enhanced elasticity. Fine lines and wrinkles will become less evident, pores will look more refined, and greatly important the blood circulation is stimulated and the overall skin condition, health, and strength improved. Some client can see the difference after one treatment! The micro-perforation quickly goes through the basal cell layer of the skin, where new cells are created. There is no possibility of forming subcutaneous scar tissue. MicroNeedling is effective and safe and there are no short or long-term adverse effects with ongoing treatments.
An electrical medical device is used to create micro-channels in the skin which in turn cause a wound response. During the process, the growth factors facilitate cell growth and cell replication stimulating collagen (gives skin plump and thickness), elastin (gives skin it’s spring) and hyaluronic acid (gives skin that youthful glow). This can smooth skin, increase skin regeneration making the skin look healthier, more youthful and tighter.

The treatment will begin with a cleansing and sanitize of the skin before lidocaine is used for numbing for 15-20 mins which will make the treatment more comfortable.

After the skin is numbed, a series of passes will be performed with the electrical needling device ensuring that hundreds of micro-channels or micropuncture wounds are created in the skin thus creating an environment for cell replication and renewal. Very little downtime and discomfort with great benefits.

  • Post treatment – use Hyaluronic Acid to soothe or Epidermal Growth Factors to speed up the recovery process.
  • A series of at least 5 treatments is usually optimal and a rest period of 3 – 4 weeks between treatments.
  • Depending on your skin, a pre- treatment of Micro-dermabrasion may be advantageous.
