What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also called percutaneous collagen induction therapy, is performed using a handheld, drum- or pen-shaped device, with tiny needles that make precise, microscopic punctures in the skin. These “micro-injuries” do not leave scars.

This process starts with inflammation, which stimulates the skin to produce new collagen (the elastic fibers that make skin tight, smooth, and youthful). Collagen levels in the skin decline as we age, and new collagen can be produced when the skin is in repair mode. Through a series of sessions, microneedling can increase elastic skin fibers. Microneedling also helps the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin), which naturally thins with age, become thicker and tauter.

What conditions does microneedling treat?

Microneedling is used to treat a variety of skin conditions that cause depressions in the skin such as acne scarring, surgical scars, other scars, burns, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and stretch marks.
