MICRONEEDLING WITH COLLAGEN
What Is Microneedling
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
What Areas Can Be Treated
Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:
Age spots (also called “sun spots”)
Fine lines and wrinkles
Other types of scars
Reduced skin elasticity
Uneven skin tone
