The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it needs to be taken care of just like the heart and other muscles of the body in order for it to look and feel its best. Micro needling, also called collagen induction therapy (CIT) and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin to create a “controlled skin injury.” Do not be alarmed by the word “injury,” as these injuries are microscopic wounds that are created to trigger the body to fill in these tiny holes in the skin by producing new collagen and elastin. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, we are proud to offer this minimally invasive procedure to those who wish to improve the texture, tone, and firmness of their facial skin.
Micro needling is a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles, pigmentation, and scars. This “lunch hour procedure” is well tolerated by patients, and it can be easily personalized by going deeper on some areas where skin damage requires a more aggressive approach. Micro needling has been clinically proven to plump up the skin in order to reduce wrinkles; it is also effective at reducing scarring from acne, burns, or surgical procedures, hyperpigmentation, mild laxity, and even stretch marks on the abdomen. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, our K Spa services provide patients with stem cell cytokines during and after treatment to optimize repair and regeneration of the skin.
