Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that usually lasts around 45 minutes. Using an electric pen-shaped device, this treatment uses fine needles to rapidly break up the skin’s surface to promote elasticity and reduce pore size. It encourages new tissue layers of elastin and collagen.
People choose microneedling for several different reasons. Although it is commonly used on the face, microneedling can also be used on other parts of the body like the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hands, legs, and back to correct or minimize certain features.
