Microneedling for skin rejuvenation
Microneedling is a non-invasive way to achieve youthful, dewy skin. It is a derma roller treatment that generates new collagen and skin tissue to make your skin firmer and smoother.
The skin undergoes changes as we get old. However, everyone desires the same smooth, beautiful and toned skin. Though, skin conditions like acne, stretch marks and pigmentation can hinder this desire. Microneedling is a procedure that encompasses this all.
We use Microneedling to resolve your skin conditions, from loose skin to alopecia, while only being minimally invasive and causing very little pain.
What is Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling stimulates collagen production in the skin. It is also called collagen induction therapy. Trauma is caused to the skin by small needles. This injury results in a response. The skin now makes more collagen-rich tissues which are more toned and even in texture.
This collagen helps to rejuvenate the skin and make it more youthful. Your skin loses collagen with age leading to wrinkles. Skin conditions like acne scarring and stretch marks can reduce collagen in the skin. Therefore, micro-needling will encourage the growth of these collagen-rich tissues to give your skin a toned and firmer look.
