How does Microneedling work?
Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the breakdown and weakening of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging.Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.
