Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy.

It induces collagen production in your body and strengthens skin. It’s not collagen injections, it helps you’re your body produce it naturally. The process is fairly noninvasive and utilizes your body’s natural ability to produce collagen. There are some major benefits to the treatment and important things to know.

Below are some of the basics to know about microneedling as it relates to the process and important aspects to consider.

What Is It?

Microneedling uses small needles to create micro injuries to your skin which triggers your body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill in the small wounds. And those wounds are virtually microscopic. Your face isn’t being gauged or obviously wounded. While the process itself is virtually invisible, the results are obvious and appear quickly.

Prevents Signs of Aging

If you have early signs of aging, then microneedling can help erase them. If you have not yet developed signs of aging or fear you slowly are, microneedling can slow the process down. This is especially useful when combined with antioxidants and other tertiary serums to help boost the effects of microneedling.

Scar Improvement

If you have scars from acne, surgery, or injury, microneedling works wonders. Nutrient absorption improves and collagen production increases with microneedling. Scars are lessened as the skin heals itself because of the tiny punctures. Results are seen after just a few treatments with more even skin tone and smooth texture.
