What is Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure which involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heals your skin and causes a tightening effect as well as younger-looking skin. Micro-needling treatments help reduce the appearance of acne scars, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks and tighten the skin.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is more even in tone and texture. It’s common for the skin to lose collagen with age or injury so this treatment makes notable improvements. Microneedling works best with a series of treatments.

The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.
