Skin Needling, also known as CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is the latest craze and it’s causing quite a stir. Skin needling goes by various names in the skin and medical community, including Dermarolling, Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), Collagen Induction Therapy, Dry Tattooing and Intradermabrasion.
What is involved in skin needling?
It simply involves the use of manually applied skin rollers that have around 200 fine surgical steel needles attached to the roller mechanism. It’s applied directly to the skin in a crisscross motion. The objective is to stimulate or puncture the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, smooth skin and promote scar or stretch mark reduction through the skins natural wound healing process.
Skin type for skin needling
For fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and general textural improvement of the skin this treatment is a must try for all skin types. The treatment itself can take anywhere from 1 hour to 1 ½ hours depending on the device being used. I generally recommend a series of 4-6 treatment spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimum results.
