Collagen remodelling is simply stimulating new collagen production using microneedling to create micro-channels in the skin that tighten and re-arrange existing collagen fibres. By increasing production and making the collagen tighten or contract gradually revealing youthful, tighter, lifted, supple, mark and scar free skin. The collagen fibers reorient and rearrange themselves creating a stronger and firmer skin structure.
