Microneedling works in three simple steps, designed to activate the skin’s natural healing process. Following each session, the skin begins to heal itself, looking more renewed and rejuvenated over time. A series of treatments may be recommended.
• Inflammation - Microneedles penetrate the skin’s surface, triggering a natural immune response to disinfect, remove debris, increase blood flow, and activate the creation of new tissue.
• Proliferation - The micro-channels or tiny holes created by microneedling are rebuilt with new cells, including collagen proteins. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
• Remodeling - New dermal tissues form, rich in collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins improve skin quality, visibly reducing facial acne scars and neck wrinkles, leaving skin more smooth, radiant, and youthful-looking.
