Microneeding (collagen induction therapy)
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using
fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in
the top layer of skin. This minimally
invasive treatment—whether it's done by a trained esthetician, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon is
virtually painless and incredibly effective.
The micro-injuries you create stimulate the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. It works the same way lasers do, only you're injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.
Believe it or not, microneedling has become hugely popular among skincare fanatics—Vogue is calling it the next big thing in anti-aging.
Fraxel technology has quickly become the industry standard for cosmetic skin rejuvenation and laser skin resurfacing.
For treatment of:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
