 What is Microneedling?

Micro needling (MN) involves the use of a series of fine needles, which can be rolled or moved over the skin. Through physical trauma from needle penetration, MN induces a wound-healing cascade with minimal damage to the epidermis. 

The creation of abundant micro-wounds directly stimulates the release of various growth factors that play a direct role in collagen and elastin synthesis and deposition within the dermis.
