Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique that creates thousands of epidermal micro-channels allowing active ingredients to pass through the skin. The micropunctures activate the release of growth factors and stimulate the wound healing process to produce collagen.
GFIT (Growth Factor Induced Therapy) involves active peptides, proteins, and growth factors being introduced to the skin via microneedling. The combination of two processes, this treatment is a minimally invasive option to help improve the overall appearance of the skin. It also targets issues such as acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation.
The appearance of a scar can improve over time, but it can be a long process. GFIT Microneedling is a quick, relatively painless procedure with minimal downtime, which could help to reduce the appearance of scars and tackle other signs of ageing, pollution, hormones or a stressful lifestyle.
In addition to those worried about fine lines, patients with sun spots, acne scarring and pigmentation problems will also benefit greatly from microneedling. The skin’s collagen production naturally begins to decline as people reach their mid-twenties, so this would be an ideal time to begin microneedling. Patients with sun damage and patients with pigmentation issues have both found significant relief from this process.
Microneedling is as ‘natural’ as nonsurgical treatments come, as it simply stimulates the body’s own healing mechanisms. The more treatments are undertaken the better, and there is no risk or looking ‘done’ or fake, as nothing extraneous is being injected into the face. Treatments can be performed within a half-hour appointment slot, and aside from a residue redness, there are no other indications that an intervention has been performed.
