Microneedling is tiny micro needles going into your face. It’s effective because it creates channels and opens pore in your skin to allow active ingredients such as serums and acids to get in and do their job quickly.
It can help with acne and acne scars, and many other indications you may want to treat. Microneedling works on the upper dermis to boost collagen.
Skin texture and firmness on the face, neck and chest is improved significantly and many women will have one microneedling session per month.
Numbing the skin beforehand is highly recommended to make the procedure as comfortable and pain-free as possible, but your medical professional who administers it for you should advise the complete procedure to you in more detail.
