Could you imagine that by damaging the cells below the skin’s surface, we can cause healthier, tighter skin as a result? This is exactly how microneedling works.
Microneedling creates micro-injuries to the cells by creating tiny holes in the skin and uses the body’s healing process to improve texture and quality of the skin. The body responds by releasing growth factors that stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastic tissue. This is an ideal non-surgical treatment for reducing fine lines, facial sagging, acne scarring, and facial scars.
