Microneedling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) is a cosmetic beauty treatment that improves your skin by creating a healing response within the skin to eliminate imperfections.

How Microneedling Works
The treatment starts with an application of a topical anesthetic to help manage any discomfort. The professionals at Esthetica MD use a microneedling device that has very fine needles to puncture your skin. The back-and-forth movement creates pinpricks on the surface of your skin, promoting a healing response and skin cell rejuvenation. Studies show that there is a 400 percent increase in collagen and elastin production because of a microneedling facial.
Your esthetician utilizes careful pressure and controls the depth of the needles during the procedure. That’s why it’s important to rely on the experience of Dr. Rabkin and his team of professionals. The in-office treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour per session. Any skin tone, including dark skin types, responds to the treatment, unlike laser treatments.
Skin Care After CIT
After your treatment, your skin feels slightly tender, which resolves itself within 24 to 48 hours. Your esthetician will explain how you can take care of your skin following the treatment and advise when you should have your next treatment. The best part about microneedling is that the production of collagen keeps on going for three to six months after the treatment. The production of collagen and elastin doesn’t decrease, leaving you with a firmer, flawless complexion for a very long time.
You may opt for additional treatments, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) in conjunction with microneedling for even more natural results. Contact Esthetica MD and ask for a consultation. The initial appointment is your first step toward flawless skin.
