Microscopic punctures stimulate the skin to activate your body’s natural repair mechanism. We call this dermal remodeling.
Your skin undergoes small amounts of inflammation caused by the microneedling. Inflammation signals the skin to produce new collagen. Collagen helps your skin stay smoother and younger. Your body produces new collagen automatically when it thinks your skin is in repair mode. Microneedling offers a way to accomplish this.
