Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Once punctures are made, products applied topically (such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C) are able to penetrate deeper into the skin in order to work more effectively. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
If you’ve tried all the creams and magic serums in the world, yet are still looking for an effective way to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars, you might want to try microneedling.
