Microneedling is a skin treatment that has become popular in recent years. It’s also known as micro punch, microneedle therapy, and collagen induction therapy (CIT). Microneedling treatments help promote the production of new skin cells and stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles. This article will cover: what micro-needling is, how microneedles work, and how much, on average micro-needling costs.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses small needles to puncture the top layers of your skin. Microneedles are tiny needles made of medical-grade stainless steel and can be found in treatments like micro punch, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and more.
How do microneedles work?
Different micro-needling treatments work in different ways. For micro punch, the needles are used to puncture your skin with varying depths of penetration that help break up scars and stimulate collagen production for a more youthful appearance. CIT uses microneedles at a high frequency to penetrate deep into the skin, releasing melatonin, vitamin A, and vitamin B into the skin.
How much does micro-needling cost?
Microneedling costs vary depending on the microneedle treatment that you are looking for. A micro punch ranges from $75-$150 per session, and a CIT varies between $400 to 600 per session.
