Medical Micro-Needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a break through remedy for the treatment of wrinkles and pigmentation, scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars) and stretch marks. This revolutionary celebrity treatment popular with Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore, has now been made available at Waterside Wellness.
Clinical studies have shown that micro needling produces channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defenses to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and erasing wrinkles.
The treatment introduces fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels. In doing so the dermis is encouraged to produce new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Serums that are applied to the skin afterwards are also up to 1000 times more effective as the pores are opened and the product is absorbed deep into the skin.
Micro-needling is ideal for treating stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation problems, acne scars and burn scars. The treatment will stimulate collagen and elastin in your skin so helps repair and plumbs skin.
