Microneedling is a technique which involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma.
This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild.
Microneedling may help address many skin-related complaints, including:
skin pigmentation issues
loose skin, such as after weight loss or liposuction
Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin.
Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking young, firm, and smooth.
Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.
It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
