Also called Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is a medical procedure that uses a disposable equipment in the form of a roll with about 200 micro-needles, of different sizes.

The microneedling procedure is well tolerated, as it is done under local anesthesia (topical cream and anesthetic blocks).

The micro needles penetrate the skin in hundreds of small points, providing stimulus to collagen formation. This new form of mechanical fractional treatment mimics the action of fractional lasers, improving texture and surface of the skin.

Applications can be made on the face, neck, neckline, back of hands and also on other areas of the body. Generally, 3 sessions with monthly intervals are recommended. More sessions can be indicated, according to patient’s needs. Maintenance is done through a semi-annual or annual application.

 

Drug delivery

After microneedling, it is common to apply specific active principles, such as anti-oxidants, which will penetrate the skin more intensely, as it is more permeable by microlesions.
