Micro-needling is an effective treatment that aims at erasing imperfection from the surface of the skin by rebuilding the body’s collagen fiber supply and making way for fresh, new skin to replace the old skin.
The idea behind micro-needling is to put the skin into a temporary state of injury; the needles break down old or damaged tissue, and induce the body’s healing mechanism.
The micro-needling procedure achieves this by making numerous minute punctures in the skin. The body responds to these punctures with an influx of collagen and elastin. These are the youthful skin proteins that keep the skin fresh and young-looking.
After treatment, collagen and elastin production continues up to 12 months while providing a gradual marked improvement with a skin that appears much firmer and plump.
