How to increase collagen in the skin through microneedling

If you are looking for a treatment to diminish signs of aging, and renew the appearance of your skin, microneedling is the answer.  Microneedling has quickly become a popular cosmetic treatment because it is a versatile procedure that treats a range of skin concerns, and boosts collagen levels.  But how is it possible to increase collagen in the skin through microneedling.

What exactly is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that is designed to improve skin tone and texture.  Microneedling benefits the skin in several ways – it restores youthful contours, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes acne scars, and more.  

How to Increase Collagen in the skin through microneedling

Microneedling is performed with a special device that is fitted with several needles.  During treatment the device is moved across the skin, and the needles penetrate the outermost layer, creating microscopic punctures.  Microneedling tricks the skin into thinking it has been wounded, so these micro-injuries activate the skin’s natural wound healing response.  

Collagen helps in the wound healing process, because it attracts new skin cells to the site of the wound.   As a result, fresh, new collagen is produced as the skin heals from the microneedling treatment.  As collagen levels increase, the skin becomes, softer, firmer, and plumper.

Microneedling is often combined with PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) therapy or hyaluronic acid injectable treatment, to further enhance skin rejuvenation results.
