Micro-needling is a specialized skin rejuvenation treatment that promotes collagen production. For this reason, it’s often referred to as collagen induction therapy. The treatment results in a smoother skin surface that is even in tone. Most forms of discoloration blemishes can be treated with micro-needling.
Stretch marks are areas of the skin that show both light and dark patches. They form when a region of skin is subjected to continuous compression or relaxation. Fortunately, the white lines and dark patches can be improved via micro-needling.
A Closer Look at Collagen Induction Therapy
Different types of instruments can be used in micro-needling. The best of these is a device that resembles a pen. A pre-sterilized tip studded with tiny needles can be found on one end of the device. When the skin is affected by the tiny needles, micro-channels are formed. The channels heal via the rush of nutrients sent by the body. Blood, liquid scar tissue, and lymphatic fluid are the compounds needed to begin the process of new tissue growth. At the same time, the body produces more collagen in the affected area.
For the treatment of stretch marks, we will usually schedule a series of micro-needling treatment sessions. These treatments are spaced apart by a week or so. Once the treatment schedule is complete, the visual improvement begins. It usually takes months for noticeable improvement in skin tone and the fading of blemishes. Eventually, the skin is more even in tone, the blemishes caused by skin compression are gone, and the skin is tauter because of the increased amount of collagen in the skin layers.
