What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling also referred to as skin needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device. The body responds to the procedure through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes.

In addition, the channels made from the micro-needles allow topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin. Generally the inflammatory reaction of the skin may take upwards of one week to fully recover.

This process has been very successful for patients at AlexAlexa.
