Often referred to as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling is a safe and non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and other skin conditions across the visage. This procedure is performed with a special tool that creates many tiny channels in the skin. This type of controlled skin “injury” stimulates the body’s natural healing process, thereby triggering the formation of new and healthier skin cells along with increased collagen production.
Why Micro-Needling Works
The tiny channels created by the micro-needling device alert the body that it’s been damaged. This promotes increased blood flow to the treated area, along with increases in collagen and elastin. Beyond merely correcting the very nominal amount of damage that the micro-needling tool has caused, these additional resources also supply added structural support, noticeable increases in suppleness and elasticity and a renewed look to the skin overall. The expedited and enhanced healing that this treatment incites is capable of minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, dark spots, sunspots, certain types of acne scars and many other common cosmetic skin issues.
With minimal to no recovery time and few after-effects, this is often the perfect cosmetic solution for people who wish to reverse the early signs of aging in a low-risk fashion. The results continue to get better in time as collagen and elastin production increases. Micro-needling treatments typically lasts just 15 to 30 minutes. However, this depends on the unique situation.
