How does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors in the skin by causing using small, sterile needles to penetrate the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. This “trauma” and puncture to the skin prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild.
It is important to realize that microneedling involves the growth of new skin and may take some time to reach its full benefits. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
