Your skin is continually challenged and stressed on a daily basis. Naturally, it’s not surprising how wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks can develop as we age. When it gets to the point when you no longer feel comfortable or confident in your own skin because it no longer represents the way you feel inside, micro-needling or CIT can help.

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needing, which is also referred to as Collagen Induced Therapy (CIT), is a treatment that can help improve certain conditions that develop on our skin, such as scars, wrinkles, sagging, and stretch marks. The treatment utilizes a device called the Dermastamp to lightly pierce the skin and stimulate the product of collagen in the desired area.

How Does it Work?

First, we meet with you to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. If so, we will schedule a therapy session in the comfort of our well-appointed and comfortable clinic. During the treatment, a topical anaesthetic is applied on the skin to avoid any discomfort. The Dermaroller is then rolled along the areas of skin using sterile medical-grade, ultra-fine needles. The device lightly pierces the skin in order to initiate the skin’s natural collagen production. The process is completely atraumatic and the skin repairs itself immediately.

How Does This Treatment Benefit my Skin?

As the skin is pierced with each super-fine needle, it stimulates the skin’s production of collagen. As new collagen is produced, the skin thickens, allowing areas with wrinkles to naturally plump up and look refreshed.

For those with stretch marks or scarring, this can work wonders as new fibroblasts and capillaries emerge along the surface of the skin, causing new skin to form in those areas. So for any areas prone to scarring, you can see a significant reduction and improvement as new tissue begins to develop. Adding PRP (platelet rich plasma) to your treatment can also significant accelerate your skin’s repair process.

How Long Does it Last?

Typically, patients experience best results after 3 to 6 treatments and the results will last between 5 to 10 years.

If you dream of having clearer, youthful, healthier looking skin, micro-needling could be the solution you’ve been searching for. It’s simple, efficient, and will last you for years to come. So whether it’s wrinkles, acne scars, or stretch marks that have you feeling insecure about yourself, gain back that confidence by breaking free from your skin. With this treatment, you can gain back that youthful, healthy glow and feel great about the skin you’re in. Book your consultation now!
