Microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment that punctures the top layer of your skin with tiny needles, creating micro injuries that stimulate your skin’s healing response and boost its natural collagen and elastin production. You can think of microneedling as collagen induction or collagen induction therapy, which is another name for it. The treatment creates micro-punctures from the needles in your skin. Your body treats a small wound the same way as a large wound, and sends fibroblasts to create more collagen in the affected area. As a result, we’re thickening the skin and improving the texture with this procedure.
