Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.

Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.

This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.

In addition to facial concerns, micro-needling is sometimes used to treat stretch marks in other areas of the body. Microneedling is effective for stretch marks on the thighs and abdominal area when combined with PRP . Scarring on other body parts may also be treated with this procedure. However, micro-needling is primarily used on the face. Learn more about micro-needling and talk to your dermatologist to see if this is the right option for your skin.
