What Is Micro-Needling?
The treatment uses a small handheld rolling or power controlled device covered with many tiny closely-spaced needles
As the device rolls along the skin, the needles create tiny holes without damaging the epidermis.
How Does It Work?
The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin's surface, thereby inducing the body to respond by producing more collagen in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and fine lines.
