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.

MORE ABOUT MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT
Microneedling helps with problems such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation (dark patches), wrinkles, lines, stretch marks, and, according to some sources, hair loss.
The treatment lasts less than half an hour, and you will typically need about 5 treatment sessions to see a tangible result.
The treatment is not painful (anaesthetic cream is used), but it does cause temporary redness of the skin. Deeper microneedling causes side effects like bruises and pain. The effect take some time appear, and you might experience some flaking while your skin is healing.
You should avoid microneedling if you are prone to keloid scars, eczema, psoriasis, or active acne.
