Microneedling is a simple way of generating growth factors.
Fine sterile needle bundles are repeatedly inserted into the skin using a device, creating thousands of tiny holes, creating thousands of microscopic injuries to the skin. The body responds with a healing response, resulting in new, collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. Each tiny needle can also break down scar tissue so there are substantial benefits in microneedling in scar tissue, such as acne scars. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury but by encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen after treatment, to help make the skin firmer.
Sometimes Derma pen is called ‘collagen induction therapy’. Microneedling stimulates your skin to make more collagen, the key component of the skin that is naturally lost over time.
