Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that stimulates your skin’s collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of skin that provides your skin with its natural strength and elasticity.
As you get older, the production of collagen slows down. Loss of collagen causes your skin to become thin and less resilient, making it more prone to lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin. These tiny tears simulate an injury, triggering the skin’s natural healing process without causing any real damage to your skin. Instead, it increases your skin’s collagen production, boosting strength and resilience.
Microneedling treats many common skin concerns. At Heritage Medical Spa, LLC, Sheila may recommend microneedling to:
