What is Microneedling?

Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling rejuvenates your skin quality by engaging your own immune system to regenerate and restore from within. Microneedling is performed with a hand-held device which has a series of ultra-fine needles on the surface. As the device is passed over the surface of your skin, the needles create a series of microscopic channels. Your body responds by producing fresh collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy, radiant skin. This enhanced collagen production continues for up to eight weeks following treatment.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

At Marcus Medical, microneedling has shown to be beneficial to:

  • Correct uneven skin tone
  • Minimize large pores
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Encourage your skin to replenish itself naturally
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks

Is Microneedling Painful?

Most patients tell us that they experience little discomfort undergoing microneedling at Marcus Medical -- our highly trained specialists are experts at administering comfortable and effective treatments. To begin, we will apply a topical anesthetic, so your treatment is comfortable. We will then apply the device, equipped with a set of tiny needles to gently puncture the skin in the area being treated, stimulating your body’s natural healing response, triggering regeneration from within. Once we’ve completed treatment, we will apply skin-nourishing serums such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to help enhance your skin quality.

Will I Require Time Away From Work?

After your microneedling procedure, there is no downtime, and you are free to resume your normal daily routine. It is imperative, however, that you stay out of the sun and avoid retinoids to protect your skin and ensure the best outcome. The results of microneedling are gradual and progressive, as the treatment relies on your body’s natural healing process. For exceptional results in skin regeneration and collagen production, you may need to undergo a series of microneedling treatments. The results of this treatment are remarkable, as nothing looks fresher and more natural than collagen-rich skin!
