Microneedling is a minimally-invasive anti-aging treatment that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, eliminate visible scars (including acne scars), and reverse sun damage and pigmentation. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling involves using tiny needles to make hundreds of punctures into the top layer of your skin. These invisible punctures stimulate your body’s natural healing process to promote cell turnover and increase collagen production.
Receiving hundreds of pinpricks may not sound like a pleasant way to spend an hour, but microneedling is virtually painless and efficient—most treatments last an hour or less.
