Microneedling is a procedure when your skin is pierced by tiny needles on a special device. This is done in order to encourage the natural healing process of the skin by causing micro-traumas. As a result, your skin produces more of the proteins called collagen (a protein that makes your skin firmer), and elastin (one that makes your skin more elastic). This makes your skin appear firmer, shinier and smoother, and you'll also have less wrinkles and lines.
