Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles to create little tiny punctures in the epidermis, sending the right signals to the body so the skin naturally heals itself helping the production of collagen and elastin to improve, so it works as a collagen induction therapy to promote rejuvenation and a host of skin-boosting benefits. Microneedling basically makes the skin glow after just one treatment and continues to improve the appearance of the complexion for months after the session.
Why is Collagen important?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. It is an enzyme that helps your body to rebuild connective tissue such as skin, ligaments and tendons. It is an essential nutrient for your body’s health and longevity. Collagen contributes to skin, bone and cartilage health by keeping these tissues strong and elastic, which can improve the appearance of your skin. It helps nourish your skin by reducing wrinkles, scars and dryness.
So, Microneedling is a popular skin rejuvenation technique that can help reduce wrinkles and scars, improve the appearance of sun damage, and even out skin tone.
