Micro-needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is often referred to as an alternative treatment to Botox® Cosmetic or Dysport®. In fact, they can be used effectively in conjunction with each other, but generally speaking, micro-needling treats many skin imperfections including, but not limited to: lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and more. It can increase natural (Type 2) Collagen by up to 1,000%.
Botox® Cosmetic is a great quick and effective fix, but only lasts around 3-4 months. Collagen induction of Collagen Type 2 from micro-needling literally replaces your skin with stronger, tighter and firmer skin. It is a new, exciting treatment and if you want something that looks completely natural – which really delays the natural aging process, then this is brilliant.
