Skin micro-needling devices work by creating tiny micro-injuries in your skin using a series of micro-needles. As the needles enter your skin, they create miniscule channels for cosmeceutical products and water to be drawn deeper into the dermis. This boosts your skin’s hydration.

At the same time, your body will respond to these micro-injuries by creating collagen and elastin to heal them. Studies show that the micro-channels close by themselves within 10 to 15 minutes, leaving no visible injuries, but this is enough time for your body’s natural healing response to kick in. In the days and weeks after the treatment, this increase in collagen and elastin will help to improve your skin’s texture, tone and colour.
