New methods in clearing acne scars and wrinkles (and even stretchmarks) have been discovered lately, one of them is microneedling. It effectively enhances new collagen production with minimal harm. Another important function of microneedling is that it increases the absorption of vitamins and rejuvenation products in the skin, thus enhancing the skin care products you are using. Primarily, collagen induction is the principle behind microneedling.

Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen Induction Therapy is the latest therapy for new skin cell regeneration. When the skin is microneedled, it stimulates skin cells to release protein and growth factors. Fibroblasts migrate to the point of injury and then transform into new collagen fibers.

It is stud with nearly 200 extreme fine needles of medical grade stainless steel. These fine needles penetrate the dermis producing tiny micro-wounds. The skin reacts to these pricks like it reacts to any other wound with the distribution of the various growth factors. As a result, new collagen develops on top of the dermis and underneath the epidermis.
