How Microneedling Works

Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a procedure popular among patients looking to smoothen their skin. It is a medical aesthetic procedure, meaning it is minimally invasive and non-surgical.

Microneedling works by creating microscopic, surface-level punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen growth. Most patients are good candidates for this treatment, provided they are in good health. However, multiple sessions are usually necessary to achieve the desired results. Furthermore, only cosmetic laser technicians should perform this procedure.
