Micro-needling is a treatment that helps generate new collagen and skin tissue or smoother, firmer and more even toned skin. It helps reduce acne scars, wrinkles, and large pores. Micro-needling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.
It is important to realize that micro-needling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several sessions for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
