Micro needling is an aesthetic technique to stimulate the production of collagen. The second layer of the skin (known as the dermis) is punctured with tiny needles to kick start the production of new elastin and collagen. Collagen is a natural protein produced by fibroblast which makes up the largest part of our skin. It forms a net like structure to hold all the skin cells together. This results in a skin appearance that is smooth and youthful. Unfortunately, as we age our skin produces less collagen.
Both skin tone and texture will be improved by this technique. Aging is inevitable, which is why this is such a valuable treatment as we try to combat dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, scaring, stretch marks and pigmentation.
