Micro-needling

Skin micro-needling uses pen-shaped devices armed with fine needles to make minuscule, evenly spaced punctures in the skin. The small wounds created by the needling devices, which sometimes allow a pinprick of blood to rise to the surface, induce the skin to start a wound healing response. The body rushes to patch up the injury by growing fresh collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are what give your skin its strength and ability to stretch and make it appear more youthful.
