Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive
treatment that helps rejuvenate, clear and smooth out the skin. The area is cleaned and 3 different skin boosters are applied: growth factor, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Next the Microneedling RF machine is applied
with small, fine needles to create tiny punctures on the skin with
a stamping motion. Needle depth can vary from 0.5 to 3 mm depending upon area of skin and condition that is being treated. This procedure helps stimulate the collagen and sends signals to the
skin to repair itself. This results in improved texture and elasticity. Radio
Frequency is the energy being delivered into the skin while the microneedling
is happening. This allows the skin heal itself much faster and delivers quicker results. We can also customize this treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma for better results.
Topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment to make treatment
comfortable. Usually 2 - 4 such treatments are required for results.
