Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as Microneedling is becoming an increasingly popular option for patients worldwide. Patients are thrilled to learn the cost is generally lower compared to other procedures for scars and wrinkles. In addition, it has low downtime, improves the texture of the skin and is considered an overall safe procedure.
Microneedling might sound like there are a million needles involved. Well, there are some needles involved but they are tiny, sharp and not scary at all. The tiny needles work together to create a microscopic wound in the skin. Creating a wound in your skin is probably the opposite of what you are seeking, but there is a good purpose for it. The wound induces the reparative processes that includes collagen renewal. Ultimately creating smooth, healthy skin.
Usually, dermatologists use a micro pen or rollers to conduct the procedure. The pen is often the tool of choice for most dermatologists since it tends to be more precise compared to the roller option. However, the roller option provides the opportunity to cover more of a surface and therefore treat larger areas.
Ideal candidates include those that are seeking overall rejuvenation. Microneedling is an excellent option for wrinkles, mild textural issues, moderate aging and acne scars. However, those with pigmentation or redness issues may not benefit from this procedure. Although it could help some pigmentation issues. But that will need to be determined by a professional.
Cosmetic procedures are often beneficial and help improve the appearance of skin. Patients that are satisfied with their results often experience a new sense of confidence and self-esteem. If you have been wanting to improve the appearance of your skin but felt afraid to undergo procedures, Microneedling is a good option for you.
Many patients feel afraid of cosmetic procedures due to a high level of pain, long downtime or high prices. Microneedling takes all of your fears away and is easy on your budget too. If you tend to be nervous about procedures or you are not sure it will help you, consult with a professional.
A dermatologist will evaluate your skin, discover your ailments and issues, offer advice and guidance plus confirm if Microneedling is a procedure you will benefit from. Once you learn all the benefits, including the short downtime, you will be anxious to receive this amazing procedure. Don’t hesitate, make a consultation appointment today with us!
