Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. It is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny sterile needles. This creates a controlled injury to the skin which stimulates the body to heal itself. In doing so collagen and elastin production is increased which results in a younger appearance. Micro needling is also effective in the treatment of acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks, and hair loss. A series of treatments is recommended with very little downtime after each session. This is acceptable treatment for all skin types.
