How Microneedling works?
Micro-needling is a procedure that involves the use of a dermaroller that contains numerous tiny needles. The dermaroller is then gently placed on the specific part of the skin to inject these needles at different spots to create micro-injuries. It works by breaking up the damaged skin cells, which in turn boosts collagen and elastin production to compensate as it heals. In three to four days one can see the injured skin becoming dry and after that, it starts to peels off.
This whole process takes about 10 to 20 days. Then a new layer of skin is formed and is free from any kind of spots or marks. The new skin that is produced is firmer, plumper, tighter. Moreover, when used in conjunction with a serum, it boosts the absorption of the ingredients.
