Microneedling is a medical aesthetics treatment that prompts your body to create new collagen cells. Children and young people have a thick layer of collagen just beneath the surface of the skin, creating the soft, rounded contouring giving a youthful appearance.
As you age, you lose much of this collagen, leaving your skin to sag into lines, folds, and wrinkles. Without intervention, your body won’t produce new collagen.
Microneedling works by using a treatment device covered in tiny, sterile needles that make small channels into your skin. The device is moved across your face or another treatment area, creating thousands of micropunctures.
Your body perceives each of these punctures as a microinjury, so it launches a healing response. New collagen cells are created, and circulation to the area improves.
One reason for the popularity of microneedling is that it can treat numerous skin conditions at the same sitting. Some of these skin conditions include:
Many people see outstanding results after only one treatment, but it might take several sessions to achieve optimal results.
