What is Micro Needling and How Does It Work?
This procedure, also called Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), uses a micro-needling device to cause the skin to redevelop fresh layers of collagen and elastin fibers. As fine needles puncture the skin, they create a channel, or micro-wound. The body then fills the channels with beneficial collagen and elastin, and forms new capillaries.
Through the production of these micro-channels, the dermis and epidermis begin to regenerate. Deeper layers of skin are treated without damaging the top layer. After a sterilized roller treatment, your therapist applies a number of peptides and serums to enhance your skin and make it look younger and healthier.
At CoLaz, we have professionally trained staff that carries out this procedure of skin needling in just the right manner.
The Importance of Collagen for Elasticity and Strength
The reason this treatment is so effective is its amazing ability to push the skin to produce collagen. Collagen is vital for giving skin its elasticity and strength. So if you've been searching for a solution for eye wrinkles, stretch marks, and scarring, the best way, without invasively injecting dermal fillers, is by stimulating the skin to produce more collagen.
The research on micro needling shows some seeing a 200% increase in collagen. It’s not completely pain-free, but your therapist will apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment, so you will barely feel it. Some people, however, do say they sense a lot of heat on the skin, but that again differs from person to person.
And your therapists at Colaz can apply the treatment to tricky areas of the body. Many people see stretch marks appear after they have very fast weight loss or gain. Anyone can be prone to stretch marks. It’s common for them to appear across body-builders and ladies post pregnancy. So, even if you have stretch marks or scars in the upper arms, waist, abdomen, and thighs, our micro needling treatments can be a way for you to finally reduce them.
