Micro-needling is a technique that uses tiny, sterile micro-needles to create very small, controlled injuries to the skin. These microscopic injuries then heal, which results in collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Micro-needling also allows for active ingredients to be absorbed into the deepest layers of skin such as stem cell and vitamin C. Micro-needling is safe for all skin types, including dark skin that may be at a high risk for side effects with lasers.
