The prospect of inflicting “micro-injuries” in your skin to improve its complexion may sound quite awry, but micro-needling does exactly that.
Micro-needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive procedure for skin rejuvenation that stimulates and increases collagen production.
Collagen is a natural wonder treatment responsible for improving skin defects such as wrinkles, scarring and hyperpigmentation. Though the procedure is widely gaining popularity, it is also misunderstood and is bedevilled with a lot of misconceptions. So in this article, we’ll look at five micro-needling facts you need to know.

SkinPen Precision is a cordless medical device designed to boost new collagen production, a key factor in rejuvenating scarred skin. It’s a safe and effective way of rejuvenating the skin in as little as 4 weeks.
This Skin pen precision technique comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This process results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin: the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin.
Skin pen precision microneedling device offers superior skin rejuvenation for patients with less downtime – and it’s far more effective than any at-home dermarollers.
It’s not a cosmetic device, so patients can be confident in the technology and the science behind it. It is:
FDA CLEARED – The Microneedling Pen is approved by the FDA.

What conditions can micro-needling improve?
This process results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin: the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. thereby rejuvenating the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Moreover, the collagen works in areas like acne scars to eliminate them, It also evens out skin tones & improves hyperpigmentation to give the skin the desirable glow.

After the micro-needling procedure, most patients get surprised when they notice that the results are almost immediate.

While the results may be almost immediate, visible improvement will continue over four to six weeks after the procedure.
