Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy – CIT. It originated from the science of acupuncture.
Micropen microneedling is a cosmetic procedure used for skin rejuvenation. The micro skin needling procedure is done using an electric tool that has several tiny medical grade sterile needles for optimal safety to create microscopic punctures to the top layer of the skin. The needles range from 0.25 to 2.5 millimeters in diameter. They are so tiny, you barely feel the pricks that enter only skin deep, but the skin responds to these injuries by triggering new tissue generation.
Micro-needling is used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, to tighten and tone the skin, and reduce pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks, and to improve lax skin.
Benefits of a Microneedling Facial
Microneedling with a derma pen improves the skin tone and skin texture. It does not burn the skin like a laser and doesn’t abrade or scrape the skin either. Micro skin needling gently stimulates the skin’s natural healing process by creating micro-channels with very fine needles that close up within an hour. This reduces the healing time, and risk of infection and makes it safe to use on all skin colours with little downtime. Microneedling skin treatment safely encourages the collagen production, and keeps the skin healthy and actually makes it thicker.

Because the derma roller hair loss stimulates the blood supply to the follicle, it can increase hair growth.
Microneedling also increases the penetration of serums and other active ingredients to support the skin’s normal cell function and can optimize the absorption and effectiveness of anti-ageing products by up to 3000%.
