Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is the newest non-surgical breakthrough skin treatment for banishing acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines. It uses thin, microscopic needles to activate production of collagen and elastin, the two compounds primarily responsible for beautiful, youthful looking skin. Microneedling patients enjoy the resulting fullness and volume that is achieved without any incisions, anesthesia or downtime.

PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

Most dermal treatments need to be customized to suit different skin types to prevent chances of pigmentation and marks. However, with the microneedling procedure, there is nothing to worry about.

The microneedling procedure follows the principles of acupuncture and is designed to suit every single skin type, including dark skin. This treatment does not use any chemical peels to provide the desired result. Instead, a device with tiny needles (or rollers in non-electronic devices) is used to make tiny punctures on the skin, promoting the skin to rejuvenate and heal itself through the production of excess elastin and collagen.

When fresh elastin and collagen are produced by the skin, the sun damage, pigmentation, acne scars, and marks are naturally healed and the face is filled in. If you’d like more information about the procedure, feel free to visit one of our New York spa locations.

RECOVERY FROM MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling clients may experience some redness as a result of the procedure, comparable to a sunburn. This usually heals quite rapidly within the first week and is no cause for alarm. Carissa Star will provide you with healing ointments that can remedy any discomfort, and makeup can be worn to help conceal any lingering pinkness after 48 hours. It’s important to avoid the sun after your treatment, and to wear sunblock.

Results can begin to show within 7-10 days in the form of a fresh lovely glow, and the skin tone may continue to improve for 6 months, as more and more healthy skin cells are produced. Microneedling can be repeated more than once, as determined by your aesthetician during follow-up visits. Typically she will suggest that sessions are at least 6-8 weeks apart, however many patients find that even just one treatment is enough to dramatically improve the look and feel of the skin.
