Micro needling is not really new, though it is newly popular in this country. Needling the skin to create new collagen has been a European practice for the past two decades. The advancement to automated needling is what’s relatively new.
Micro needling is based on the ability of the skin to self-repair when a wound occurs. Micro needling creates microscopic pinpoint “wounds”. The body responds by creating new elastin and collagen. It is a safe, heat-free treatment that is successfully used on all skin types and colors.
