What is Microneedling?
Exactly what it sounds like. Microneedling is a procedure in which a doctor or an esthetician moves thousands of tiny needles across your skin. Don't worry, the procedure doesn't hurt. In fact, the needles are very small and they only touch the surface of the skin.
Sometimes called collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling works to remove a very fine layer of skin. If that sounds similar to a chemical peel or a dermabrasion, it is. Like those procedures, microneedling allows a fresh new layer of skin to come to the surface.
Microneedling works fast, too. You should see dramatic results in only five or six sessions. Couple it with another medspa treatment for skin that's dramatically firmer, brighter and younger-looking.
What Does Microneedling Do?
The main benefit of microneedling is that it stimulates collagen production. Collagen is the skin's building block and loss of collagen is what leads to age spots, wrinkles and rough, crepey skin.
After a few microneedling sessions you can expect to:
- Reduce acne scarring
- Diminish wrinkles and tighten skin
- Reveal skin that looks fresh and bright
- Diminish scars and pits
- Fill in fine lines
- Prepare your skin to fully absorb skincare and beauty treatments
