How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is considered a controlled injury to the skin. The idea is that the pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and the skin responds by creating new collagen. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth texture.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
This technique is used a number of skin problems on the face and body including scarring, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, pigmentation issues, skin tone and texture, and age management issues.
Unlike lasers, IPL, or chemical peels, microneedling can be used on all skin types without fear of hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, or burning. Treatments can also be performed after recent, mild sun exposure making it a procedure that can be performed year-round.
