Microneedling (also known as Medical Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretching), scarring (acne, surgical), hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and hair loss.
Microneedling technology (i.e. automated pens, rollers, etc.) use very fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin and to create micro-channels deep into the skin in order to stimulate new collagen/elastin production. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients.
Microneedling is designed to be a safer, less invasive alternative to many surgical enhancements. The epidermis, which is the thin upper layer of skin, protects our bodies from harmful UV radiation, pollutants, and other environmental stressors. Ideally, you’ll want the healthiest and thickest epidermis you can, for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Utilizing topical Vitamin A, C, and E as well as beta-carotene can help to maintain elastin and collagen integrity in the skin; however, the natural process of aging can lead to the thinning of the epidermis, often resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Microneedling helps to boost collagen production, typically making your skin appear younger, smoother, and more radiant.
How Does Dermal Roller Microneedling Work?
Treatment will begin with the topical application of an anesthetic, which will be allowed to activate for approximately 30 minutes. Your face will then be carefully cleansed prior to utilizing the Roll-CIT handheld microneedling tool, which will be rolled vertically, horizontally, and diagonally across the area of concern. This device features rows of ultrafine microneedles that are designed to create tiny perforations in the epidermis. These miniature fissures jump start the body’s natural healing process, stimulating elastin and collagen production. While some patients will be satisfied with the results after one treatment, you may wish to repeat the procedure until achieving your desired outcome.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling offers a multitude of benefits without resorting to invasive techniques or requiring the injection of foreign substances. In addition to treating common signs of aging, microneedling can potentially:
- Restore skin resiliency
- Diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases
- Little to no downtime.
- Effective for all skin types, light to dark.
- Comfortable experience.
- Ideal any time of the year.
- Real results from a safe, natural and minimally invasive procedure.
- Clinically proven safe and effective.
