What is automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles.
What are the benefits of Micro-Needling?
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-Needling can also improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
What areas of the body can I treat?
MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after your treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skin care professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
