How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), can do more for your skin than any retail-based collagen booster. This is because tiny, medical-grade needles penetrate your skin into the dermis at precise depths, creating a matrix of controlled injuries which jumpstart your skin’s healing response. When the needles reach the desired depth within your dermis, your skin triggers the body’s healing mechanism to replace damaged skin cells.
Collagen, which is the skin’s most important support structure, creates a latticework of new fibers which firm up and support the new skin. This process improves your complexion from the inside out. Fine lines and wrinkles are erased, age spots and sun damage are reduced, enlarged pores shrink, and even acne scars are improved as they’re replaced cell by cell with new skin. Elastin production also improves, and when combined with LPS’s hyaluronic acid (HA) serum we apply to nourish and hydrate skin, your complexion regains the supple, hydrated youthful glow you’ve tried to preserve with your faithful skincare routine at home.
There are no harsh chemicals or laser energy, and microneedling does not interfere with skin pigmentation, so it doesn’t matter what skin type you have. Microneedling can improve the skin of almost anyone. With repeated treatments—patients average 3-6 treatments to achieve their desired results—studies show a 400% increase in the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin. Microneedling isn’t reserved only for the face, either. It can be used on the backs of the hands and the upper chest and neck region to reduce texture concerns and sun damage that contribute to an aged appearance.
