Microneedling is a non-surgical skin procedure to carefully pierce the top layer of skin with multiple ultra-thin needles. Your body responds by rushing growth factors, collagen, and elastin to the scene to make repairs and regrow skin and tissue. That’s why the procedure is often called collagen induction therapy.
This popular treatment makes your skin plumper and thicker and has a number of other remarkable benefits, including:
⭐ Scar Reduction - Microneedling breaks down scar tissue and provokes collagen to backfill the pock marks. With a series of microneedling sessions, you can restore hydration and elasticity to the scar tissue and minimize its overall appearance. Raised scars respond better than indented or depressed scars.
⭐ Wrinkle Reduction - Microneedling triggers your body’s innate healing mechanisms, which causes it to generate more skin-fortifying collagen and elastin. This firms, tones, and tightens, leaving your skin smooth and supple.
⭐ Skin Rejuvenation - With new collagen and elastin, your skin gets its bounce and vitality back. The new layers haven’t been exposed to the sun, wind, or time, so your skin looks smooth, hydrated, and healthy.
⭐ Improving Skin Tone - Microneedling does a tremendous job of lightening and reversing hyperpigmentation and sun damage. This is again due to the power of collagen production and its ability to repair and restore your skin.
