What is Microneedling?
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) also known as Microneedling and referred to as skin needling, micro needling and micro-needling, is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure using hair-thin needles to cause superficial punctures in your skin prompting a collagen-stimulating healing process that corrects inconsistencies in our skin. The best thing about microneedling is that it can be done on any part of the body! For instance, if you have stretch marks on your tummy after having a baby -hair-thing can be used to help them disappear.
Microneedling is used to treat:
Fine Lines & Small Thin Wrinkles (e.g., on the upper lip, around eyes)
• Acne Scars (& General Scarring)
• Skin Laxity
• Under Eye Bags
• Enlarged Pores
• Hair Loss (by stimulating the scalp)
• Uneven Skin Tone
