What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles that make minuscule puncture wounds on the surface of your skin. 

The wounds close quickly and stimulate your skin’s natural healing process, boosting collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are structural proteins found in the dermal layer of your skin responsible for its strength and elasticity. 

What can microneedling treat?

Dr. Thampy uses microneedling to treat many common skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  •  Skin dullness

What happens during microneedling?

Dr. Thampy customizes your microneedling treatment plan to match your beauty concerns, goals, and your  skin type. She reviews the details of your plan at your consultation, including risks and benefits.

What can I expect after microneedling?

Healing may take days or weeks, depending on the reason for your microneedling. Deeper scars take longer to heal. You can expect redness that disappears within a few days, and your skin may feel tight and flake.

Dr. Thampy may recommend a series of treatments to get the best results. She can follow up your microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or laser treatments for complete skin rejuvenation.
