Micro-needling also know as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a treatment proven to stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, reduce acne scarring, and the appearance of stretch marks and surface pigmentation.
Licensed by Health Canada.
Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the client.
Post treatment, clients may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen. Most results are most noticeable 1-3 months after the last session.
Treatment is a safe and effective solution for most skin types.
During the treatment, clients may feel a prickly sensation but is tolerable because of the topical anaesthetic cream used to reduce unpleasant sensations. Clients may feel a little discomfort when treating delicate areas. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance is also common. An intensive moisture mask is applied right after to remove 80% of the redness and to give the skin an immediate boost of hydration.
For the first 24 hours, your skin may feel sun burnt and appear a bit red. No makeup or creams can be used on the skin, with the exception of specific post procedure products.
