Rejuvapen NXT Microneedling has become a very popular treatment in recent times thanks to its efficacy in bringing a noticeable difference and vast improvement in the appearance of various skin concerns. It has been also known as CIT – Collagen Induction Therapy, Skin Needling or Dermarolling.
Though needling treatments could sound scary to some, they have become star services for many skin therapists and cosmetic practitioners, owing to the impressive results they can achieve while remaining non-surgical.
Microneedling is a procedure that utilizes a cartridge of nine or sometimes twelve pieces of medical grade stainless steel. They are precisely spaced microneedles to create invisible controlled vertical micro perforations, into the five layers of the epidermis as well as into the papillary and reticular layers of the dermis. Using specially designed and manufactured sterile devices, the goal is to puncture the stratum corneum and induce a controlled injury response within the tissue.
The production of thousands of controlled microscopic needle incisions triggers the release of growth factors, which initiate the wound healing process by stimulating the migration and proliferation of fibroblasts that promote collagen deposition. It is also believed that when micro needles penetrate the skin , there is a change in bioelectric potential of cells and interstitial fluid and a small electrical current is produced, called a demarcation current. It is the demarcation current that triggers a cascade of growth factors that stimulate the healing phase. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out.
