How Microneedling Works
Microneedling devices cause controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process. As the skin begins to heal, it goes through a three-phase wound repair process:
1) Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers the immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
2) Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix.3) Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
