The Bay Spa’s Microneedling Treatment
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a process that employs the use of a small needling device (similar to a pen) to create tiny holes (micro-channels) in the skin. These micro-channels can help stimulate the skin’s natural healing properties by producing collagen and elastin*.
Microneedling can be used to treat several skin conditions, including*:
- Fine Lines
- Scarring (e.g., Acne Scars, Surgery Scars, etc.)
- Stretch Marks
- Loose Skin
Microneedling can improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. In addition, it allows for faster and deeper penetration of topical creams, gels and serums, potentially producing better results from these products.
At The Bay Spa your Microneedling treatment includes dermaplaning or Microdermabrasion depending on skin type as well as Red LED light therapy to speed up healing.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device equipped with fine, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface. These tiny punctures trigger the body's natural wound healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin elasticity and texture. As the skin heals, it becomes firmer, smoother, and more evenly toned, resulting in a reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Microneedling can also enhance the absorption of topical skincare products, making it a highly effective treatment for overall skin rejuvenation and improvement in texture and appearance.
What Areas can be Treated with Microneedling?
Collagen Induction Therapy can be used safely on nearly all parts of the body. Some of the most common areas we treat include:
Can I do the same procedure on my own with a Dermaroller?
Dermarollers used at home are less effective than professional microneedling treatments primarily due to their limitations in depth and precision. Professional microneedling devices can precisely control needle depth and speed, ensuring optimal penetration for specific skin concerns, while dermarollers often lack this precision, leading to inconsistent results and increased risk of skin damage. Licensed professionals also adhere to strict sterilization and safety protocols, offer customized treatments tailored to individual skin needs, use high-quality devices and products, and provide expert guidance on post-treatment care—all of which contribute to more effective and safer microneedling outcomes compared to at-home dermarollers.
