Micro-needling is an excellent skin-rejuvenation technique that provides its treatment in a rather interesting way. Microneedling is performed using a device that contains a cluster of tiny sharp needles. The needles will oscillate as the devices passes over the skin. This creates tiny injuries in the layers of the skin.
How does causing tiny injuries to the skin rejuvenate it? It may seem counterintuitive, but these superficial wounds do not cause permanent damage. The tiny injuries stimulate the skin-renewal process and promote the production of collagen. The collagen helps to strengthen and tighten the skin, and the entire process can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin sagging.
