Microneedling is the fastest, most convenient treatment for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Automated Microneedling (or collagen induction therapy) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, texture, tone, and acne scars. During the procedure, the Micropen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. The Micropen also creates micro-channels, which allow topical gels, creams, and serum to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
