For those looking to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, or boost collagen, microneedling might offer a minimally invasive solution. What is microneedling, what are the benefits, and why do you need it? Also, does it hurt?
Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) induces collagen production and actually strengthens the epidermis. When glided over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen growth. Each micro “injury” creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to fill the microscopic wound. This procedure has no major side effects and results are noticeable in a short period of time.
