Collagen Induction Therapy or Microneedling, as it is also known, is a treatment that involves using a tool with 12 super-tiny needles in the very tip, which can be adjusted between 0.5 and 2.5 millimeters.
0.5 millimeters is the smallest amount, which penetrates the stratum cornea, or the superficial layer of skin.
Microneedling is collagen induction—and the treatment creates micro-punctures from the needles in your skin. Your body treats a small wound the same way as a large wound, and sends fibroblasts to create more collagen in the affected area. We are basically tricking your skin into thinking it has been wounded, but as a result, we're thickening the skin and improving the texture with this procedure.
