What is skin needling?

Skin needling, also known as microneedling or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with very fine needles to create micro-injuries or punctures in the skin. The needles are typically attached to a roller or a pen-like device that is moved over the skin to create tiny punctures or channels in the outermost layer of the skin.

These tiny punctures trigger the body's natural healing response, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give the skin its structure and elasticity, and they help to keep the skin looking firm and youthful.

Skin needling is often used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and other skin imperfections. It can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.
