The Micro Needling has been found through the term collagen induction therapy in the medical literature. Both the treatment of atrophic acne scars as well as the treatment of extensive atrophic scars on the face can be significantly improved. The length of the needles to be penetrated can be varied individually for each patient, depending on the treatment therapy. Due to the variation in the length of the needle, the various skin layers can be effectively achieved, leading to scientifically proven results.
What makes the Microneedling device?
The fine needles of the microneedling device are a hint of injury that stimulates the skin cells without destroying them. This has 2 effects: On the one hand, the horn layer is perforated. As a result, effective active substances such as hyaluronic acid, which are then applied to the treated skin, can reach into deeper skin layers.
The second effect is that by the small injuries of the skin a large wound is pretended. However, these small holes are closed again after six hours.
However, many growth factors are produced by the skin in order to heal the supposedly great wound. By stimulating the fibroblasts, this leads to an excess of newly formed collagen, which makes the skin thicker and firmer overall. In colorectal cancer, the collagen is filled with collagen from below by the new formation of collagen.
