The needle breaks the skin and causes micro-trauma and micro-inflammation, but without removing the top layer of skin. Your body responds by sending blood to the area for healing. As your skin repairs itself and heals underneath, new collagen builds up just below the surface. The wrinkles, lines, or depressed scars plump naturally from the bottom-up without artificial agents. Repeated needling sessions gradually and continually build new collagen to fill-in the treated areas. Collagen is what your body produces to keep your skin young healthy.
The gentle stimulus provided by Microneedling is far more “skin friendly” and thus far more effective than many other more invasive and more expensive skin treatments.
