Here are the 6 Benefits of Microneedling  

1.) Microneedling or referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a process that involves needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin, creating pseudo wounds that prompted our own system to produce the necessary collagen and elastin for the repair of the new “wound” thereby improving the scar. This is a break through revolutionary therapy which is popular with celebrities, and is available at the center.

2.) Painless Technique–  Generous amount of topical anesthesia is applied in the skin thereby making the procedure tolerable and painless.

3.) Youthful look – Treatment introduced fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulates production of new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Atrophic facial scars (chicken pox mark and reducing wrinkles ).

4.) Up to 1,000 times more effective than conventional treatment– Serums that are applied to the skin are up to 1,000 times more absorbed because of the “tiny” holes created by microneedling.

5.) Smoothing of scars and reducing stretch marks – As a result of the treatment, the skin thickness being increased up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks enlarge pores, or pitting acne / chicken pox marks and reducing wrinkles

6.) Affordable – Compared to using other treatments and going to other derm clinic, Skinfitness Center offers affordable package.

Note: People who undergo the procedure can expect some redness depending on the individual response. Some overnight but some can last up to couple days post procedure as a result of all the skin stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins and the results of a more glowing skin start to show.
