Hundreds of tiny pin pricks going into your skin might sound like the beauty version of waterboarding, but it could just be the best thing that ever happened to your face especially if you have a problem of dull and sagging skin. Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. The purpose of micro needling is to generate new collagen and skin tissue. It is a procedure which creates small, micro-skin channels, while stimulating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increasing the production of new collagen. These micro-skin channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing deep penetration into the skin without the severe side effects or the long recovery time.
Microneedling tightens loose skin in older men and women. (Remember: The older you are, the less collagen you’re naturally producing.) It makes skin visible smooth and energetic.
