How Microneedling Works?

The ideal goal is to develop a younger appearance, smoother, tighter, overall healthier skin. Micro-needling naturally stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. There is also further benefits with wrinkle and scar reduction for almost all skin types.

Micro-needling device is used to break down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

What To Expect During Treatment

The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles. For starters, through this process, your epidermis remains intact. This technique can even be repeated on the suited and appropriated regions safely due to its minimal invasiveness to the skin. The feeling associated with the procedure is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. It takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. Micro-needling does not require extensive training or costly equipment. There are single-use systems as well as multiple-use devices both reasonable in price and session.
