Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. Collagen is a protein produced by our bodies to support the health of many tissues including skin. In skin, collagen plays a major role in skin structure, hydration, and elasticity. By age 35 almost half of our natural collagen stores are depleted.
Our skin is made up of two layers: the outer, protective layer of skin, our epidermis, that is visible to everyone, and the deeper, dynamic layer known as the dermis. The dermis is the most important layer of skin providing structure to our epidermis and containing growth factors and fibroblasts, producers of collagen and elastin. The most effective anti-aging treatments will target the dermis activating new skin cell production and increasing collagen and elastin.
