Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that works by stimulating collagen production in the skin. During the procedure, the dermatologist creates micro punctures in your skin with the help of micro-needles. The diameter of these tiny punctures ranges from 0.5 to 2 mm. As the micro-punctures are made in your skin, the wound healing mechanism of your body gets activated. As a result, collagen and elastin are formed, rejuvenating your skin and treating all skin irregularities.
