Also referred to as Collagen Induction Treatment (CIT), microneedling is a procedure that’s hugely popular around the world because of its ability to provide a more even skin texture. Its efficacy is perhaps best illustrated by the fact that it’s enjoyed by many big names in the entertainment world.

While you may have heard about it in passing before, there’s a good chance that you don’t know what’s involved and what benefits it offers – something we seek to rectify with this blog.

Helping the Skin to Regenerate Itself

As the skin gets older, the natural mechanism that keeps it looking young begins its steady decline – usually from a person’s late twenties. The result of this decline is a worsening lack of collagen that causes the skin to become less supple and flexible.

Microneedling Grieshaber works by stimulating the skin to once again produce lots of lovely collagen, combined with elastin that gives skin its youthful glow. The great thing about it is that it’s suitable for most skin types and all it takes is an initial consultation with an expert dermatologist to confirm that its appropriate for you.

The treatment is known to offer a range of skin benefits that include:

  • Increased collagen production meaning firmer skin tone
  • Reduced pore size, fewer wrinkles and tightened skin
  • Improved appearance of acne, burn and trauma scars
  • A reduction in hyperpigmentation
  • Elimination of weight or pregnancy-related stretch marks

How the Benefits are Achieved

The treatment is effective because of the way in which tiny channels are created in the skin, while at the same time not damaging the epidermis. This kick starts the natural processes in the skin that have stopped happening on their own, with the many benefits including younger-looking, firmer and more resilient skin.

If you want to increase the effects of microneedling even more, there’s another treatment called a Vampire Lift or to give it its official title – PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) that uses the patient’s own blood to simulate the creation of collagen and the regeneration of skin cells.

While it might sound like a gruesome treatment initially, all it involves is the drawing of a small amount of your own blood, which is then spun rapidly or ‘centrifuged’. The resultant fluid has all of the erythrocytes and platelets separated out – giving it all the properties needed to stimulate cell growth and produce fine line-free, firmer skin – and then injected into the skin.

A Quick Half an Hour In the Treatment Chair

Microneedling is effective, affordable and the treatment itself only takes about half an hour for each session. With 3-4 treatments a year being the recommended frequency, that adds up to a maximum of 2 hours in the clinician's chair. Those enjoying the benefits will tell you that this is a small price to pay for what it offers.

Couple that with the fact that there’s often no meaningful after-effects and you soon start to see exactly why its as popular as it is. Even those that do experience the known mild side effects like bruising and redness only do so for a day or two, meaning that it’s something you can get over pretty quickly.

Whether you enjoy these benefits for yourself is up to you, but it would be true to say that the evidence absolutely exists that it works. If you’re not happy with your acne scars or any other condition that affects your skin’s appearance, it could well be the answer you’re looking for.
