Microneedling is the latest trend in this quest to stay youthful.
It’s a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury in order to rejuvenate skin.
It is minimally invasive, doesn't cause significant wounding of skin. Virtually anybody can safely undergo micro needling therapy with minimal risk of long term adverse effects. Typically important factors such as age or skin color don't matter. Even areas of the body where skin is typically thin can undergo treatment with microneedling devices.
