Microneedling is a treatment that improves your skin’s tone and texture by stimulating your skin’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that lends your skin structure, strength, and firmness. You lose some of it with age, which gives your skin an aged appearance. Microneedling can reduce many common signs of aging without surgery, injections, or medications.
During a microneedling treatment, your provider at Align Body & Wellness uses a handpiece with many tiny pins on its head to create small injuries in the surface layer of your skin.
Your skin responds by repairing these injuries and producing new collagen to heal them. You might not notice a big difference immediately, but your skin continues to improve for several months after your microneedling treatment.
Microneedling offers a number of benefits for your skin. You can use the treatment to improve specific skin features or to make an overall improvement to the way it looks and feels to the touch. Features that microneedling treatments are known to improve include:
