During micro-needling, which is also called collagen induction therapy, hundreds of small, invisible punctures are created in the top layer of the skin by using superfine needles. These wounds are known as micro-injuries, and by using micro-needling to create micro-injuries, the body’s own wound-healing processes are stimulated to work.
It is safe and effective for people to undergo micro-needling therapy because it is not invasive, doesn’t cause significant wounds on the skin, nor is it light-based, so there is little risk of long-term adverse effects from micro-needling therapy. The importance of age or skin color is generally not a factor that matters. In addition to areas of the body where the skin is usually thin, micro-needling devices, such as Dermapen, are capable of creating a consistent penetration depth that can easily be controlled.
What are Microneedling?
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen production in the skin as a way to treat skin concerns. Also called collagen induction therapy, it involves creating micro-punctures in the skin with miniature, sterilized needles and it stimulates collagen production in the skin as a way to treat skin concerns.
