Among the myriad of anti-aging treatments available, micro needling (aka derma rolling or collagen induction therapy) is on the rise and with good reason, it works! Micro needling harnesses the skin’s natural healing ability, stimulating cell proliferation and the formation of new collagen to create a thicker, stronger cellular matrix which results in radiant and younger looking skin.
Not only does micro needling effectively diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but when done safely and correctly, it drastically reduces acne scarring, age spots, pore sizes, sun damage, and more.
What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling, derma rolling, and collagen induction therapy all refer to the same procedure. Micro needling utilizes a device similar to a miniature prickly lint roller with a rotating head that contains tiny, medical grade needles. These micro needles when passed over the surface of the skin, puncture it creating miniscule perforations that begin healing immediately.
