How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works by stimulating improvement in the skin’s texture, firmness and hydration. It also creates a reduction in wrinkles, pigmentation, scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
The procedure utilizes a needling pen with 12 (33 gauge) medical grade needles. The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create fine holes (micro wounds that are controlled) at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body’s natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.
Microneedling treatments do not burn the skin (like a laser), or abrade and scrape it (like dermabrasion), or dissolve it (like chemical peels). It uses a precise needle depth with a small diameter to treat small areas using a sterile single use tip.
