Microneedling is all about stimulating collagen production by using the body’s natural healing process in response to tissue injury. Our ability to produce new collagen decreases over time, and microneedling can help. The procedure involves using a specific tool with fine hair-like needles to create tiny pinpricks in the surface of the skin. These “micro-injuries” cause the body to create new healthy collagen to repair the pinpricks.
Benefits of microneedling include improved skin texture, less visibility of pores, reduction in fine lines, increased glow and for some patients even reduction in unwanted pigmentation or melasma. Microneedling “bridges the gap” between microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing. For patients wanting real results with little to no risk or downtime, this is the procedure for you!
