Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that involves using a small handheld device to puncture very tiny holes in the surface of the skin. During the treatment, a handheld device with tiny, shallow needles is gently rolled across the skin. These needles create controlled micro-punctures in the skin’s surface that trigger the body’s natural healing process. As a result, the skin goes into repair and regeneration mode. It may seem daunting to imagine so many tiny punctures in the skin. However, the very short needles are typically only 1.5 mm in length or less. In the right hands, the procedure is virtually painless, producing dramatic results.
