    Presently, microneedling therapy also known as collagen induction therapy CIT) or Percutaneous Collagen Induction  (PCI) is slowly gaining success in the treatment of post acne scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. This minimally invasive procedure uses a device that contains very fine needles that punctures the skin effectively enough to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The microchannel produced will also aid in the penetration and absorption of therapeutic serum. Micro needling system improves the skin texture , increases skin thickness. reduces pore size and stretch marks.

    Microneedle number and sizes may vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm and can be manual, electric or battery powered. Needles sizes of 1.0 mm and higher  are designed for deeper scars and generally used by skin practitioners. It is performed in clinic setting and is done every month depending on the recommendation of your dermatologist or skin practitioner. Topical anesthesia may be applied an hour prior to procedure but it is generally well tolerated with minimal downtime. Consultation is recommended prior to procedure so that a personalized approach to treatment can be discussed.

    We usually recommend 4 treatments 1 month apart depending on the depth of scar and the skin response. Indeed, microneedling has a great promise for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles and stretch marks. It is best to talk to your skin care practitioner so you will be better informed about this treatment.
