A summer must in skincare is Collagen Percutaneous Induction Needling, also known as microneedling. It’s a procedure that uses small pricks in the skin, mainly the face, triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen and elastin.

“This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates, and longer lasting results,” says Robin Thoda, L.M.A., with de la Belle Wellness & Spa.

In a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing the treatment.

Microneedling is ideal for summer skincare because laser heat and chemicals are not involved. It reverses sun damage; plumps the skin; and reduces wrinkles, pore size, and acne scarring. The result is smoother, toned, and firm skin for a more youthful appearance.
