Microneedling percutaneous collagen induction (PCI)or collagen induction therapy (CIT) is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment concerns. Most individuals are candidates for treatment except those who have active infections, lesions, or any known wound healing problems at the time of treatment. If you have active acne, or tender acne cysts, do not microneedle over those areas. It will irritate the area, make them more inflamed and potentially spread bacteria. Wait until your skin is clearer before attempting the procedure. Microneedling is typically performed in a series of four to six sessions, spaced about a month apart. During the procedure, a topical anesthetic is applied and then a penlike tool is used to create tiny punctures in the skin to cause microinjuries or punctures. The purpose behind this is to allow new collagen to form, allowing the skin to look and feel softer, tighter, and more youthful. Because the sun breaks down collagen, and our skin naturally makes less collagen as we age, any intervention that encourages increased collagen synthesis can make skin look and act younger.
