Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), has gained popularity as an anti-aging treatment thanks to its ability to reduce wrinkles and acne scars and stimulate skin cell regeneration, reducing the appearance of stretch marks, and generally making your skin look younger and healthier. But what exactly is microneedling? What are the benefits? And most importantly, can it give you smoother, healthier skin? We answer all these questions and more below!
What is Microneedling
Microneedling is a highly effective skin care treatment, quickly becoming the go-to method for many people to regenerate and renew their complexion. This treatment goes deep into the skin’s surface to promote new cell growth and collagen production. It is used to get rid of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines on your face. In addition to treating these concerns, microneedling also benefits people suffering from sun damage or acne scarring. The treatment can smooth over scars on your chest and body too!
Benefits of Microneedling
This procedure can boost collagen production and give your skin a refreshed look. Microneedling creates microscopic punctures in the outermost layer of the epidermis. Collagen and elastin are stimulated in the process, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while promoting new cell growth. It also helps to encourage the absorption of topical ingredients. All this means fresher-looking skin with more natural volume and improved elasticity! The treatment length depends on what you are seeking from the procedure – from only 20 minutes for mild improvement to 90 minutes for severe skin damage. And since it is minimally invasive, there is little downtime or recovery time needed afterward!
