Microneedling is a highly effective method of treating scarring, wrinkles and stretch marks. This treatment is especially successful in treating pitted acne scars usually caused by post acne healing. Microneedling before and after photos speak for themselves when it comes to this revolutionary treatment. The treatment was formerly known as Collagen Induction Therapy or (CIT) because it’s an active method of tricking the body into releasing collagen in order to heal and restore the treated areas.
The way this treatment works is by causing trauma to the target area using very fine needles which can penetrate the skin at various depths. This essentially “tricks” the skin into doing what it does naturally, which is restoring and healing itself. The tool used in this procedure is 12 sterile needles which produces 7000 RPM (revolutions per minute), essentially puncturing the skin. The idea behind this, is to damage and cause trauma to the skin just as the acne did, however this time allowing the skin to heal properly so it comes back with perfect healing whilst tightening pores & pitted scars.
