Your ability to generate collagen decreases as you age. Microneedling is a procedure to kickstart your own immune system to heal your skin with increased production of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling is a process that involves using needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin.
How does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), involves using a tool called a dermapen with tiny needles at the end that make little holes or needle pricks in the top layers of skin.
The little holes from the needles create “micro channels” that allow skin care products such as potent serums to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of skin to deliver more powerful results.
These tiny pinpricks act as a bunch of mini injuries which kick skin into healing mode and stimulates collagen and elastin production. This process plumps skin and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and pores.
