Micro-needling at New Age Laser Medical Clinic is Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). Areas of treatment include: acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks, large pores, dark under eye circles, crow’s feet, wrinkles, fine lines hypo and hyper pigmentation. Any or all body areas can be treated.
Micropen’s sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles creates channels or controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to induce collagen and elastin production resulting in thickening of the dermis. Wrinkles and scars appear less visible with tighter pores.
The light discomfort associated with micro-needling is similar to microdermabrasion. Some areas are more sensitive than others. The speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable. Sometimes, depending on the depth of the needling and the condition being treated, topical numbing agents may be used.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a pinkness to the skin. In addition the total healing time depends on the condition being treated and the depth of the procedure. Adhering strictly to post care instructions will speed up the healing process.
Visible changes will develop over the course of 6 months as a result of collagen production continuing.
