Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a safe, popular and effective treatment for improving the tone and texture of the skin. It works by the process of growth factor activation: a microneedling device glides across the skin and creates hundreds of tiny punctures, or “wounds”, which immediately jumpstart a cascade of growth and repair activity. New, healthy collagen formation is activated, and the ability to absorb and hold on to moisture is amplified. Using moisture-enhancing or growth-factor-stimulating products like hyaluronic acid or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), microneedling can produce dramatic effects.
Microneedling is used for acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and for creating a smooth and healthy look. “Down-time” is minimal ⎼ you can be back to work the next day!
