What is Microneedling
Micro-needling is performed with a pen-like instrument that has 12 to 36 tiny micro-needles on its tip. After applying a thin layer of serum to the skin, the pen is gently moved across the skin’s surface, where it creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin.
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. The treatment creates micro channels in the skin (in the dermis layer) causing the production of growth factors that in turn induce the production of collagen. The production of growth factors is the body’s natural way to heal wounds and rebuild the skin after trauma.
Microneedling is able to allow for deeper penetration of serum into the skin and boost elastin and collagen production. The result is a more uniform skin texture and tone. By creating a “micro-trauma” in the skin, the skins own repair response kicks in to start producing collagen and elastin. That in turn makes our skin tighter and smoother. Additionally, using specific serums, creams and topical herbs expands the therapeutic effect including anti-aging or reducing pigmentation. Microneedling also increases facial absorption by 3000%, allowing skincare products to be more effective.
