How does Collagen Induction Therapy or Micro-needling Work?
What do acne scarring, wrinkles, and stretch marks have in common? Although these skin issues occur for different reasons, collagen is the common thread. Collagen is the ingredient that plumps up the skin and makes it appear youthful. The amount of collagen in the skin can be lost through through the aging process or damage to the skin such as acne infections, folliculitis, and sun damage.
By pricking the skin, its response is to become inflamed and produce collagen as part of the healing cycle. Micro-needling damages the skin on a minor scale with the end result being increased collagen production – smoother, youthful looking skin.
To enhance the Micro-needling process, serums are applied to the skin. The active ingredients in these skin care products can work below the surface of the skin for an even better result.
