You may have heard of micro needling as one of the most recent, hottest skincare trends. Micro needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves using hundreds of extra-fine needles over the top layer of the skin to create virtually invisible punctures.

While it doesn’t sound appealing on its face, thousands of people are flocking to their dermatologist to learn more about whether micro needling actually works and what it’s all about. Today, we’re here to tell you not only that it works, but what exactly some of the benefits are.

1. It’s Non-Invasive & Virtually Painless

Yes- believe it or not, micro needling is one of the most noninvasive procedures out there. The punctures are considered to be “micro-injuries,” only doing enough to kick the skin’s natural recovery reaction into gear. Through stimulating the body’s natural process, you’re using your body’s own healing mechanisms to rejuvenate and refresh your skin!

2. It Treats a Wide Variety of Skin Problems

Many seek micro needling to reduce skin damage from visible acne scarring, to shrink pores, and simply to refresh their skin. Not only has micro needling proven to be extremely effective for treating these problems, but it has also been found to reduce signs of aging. Those who suffer from loose skin, wrinkles, and lines will find that the collagen-producing power of micro needling will have a great effect on the youthfulness of their skin

3. It Can be Done on Virtually Any Problem Area

That’s right- micro needling treatments aren’t just for your face! Areas such as the thighs, legs, hips, and chest, for example, are just some of the most popular places to receive micro needling treatments for stretch marks, acne scars, and more. Just a few sessions of micro needling treatments in these problem areas can make a big difference in your self-confidence!
