Microneedling, a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, has gained prominence in recent years as an effective method for rejuvenating the skin. This treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a specialized device equipped with fine needles that create controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface. These tiny punctures stimulate the skin's natural healing processes, triggering collagen and elastin production. As a result, microneedling is celebrated for its ability to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, and enhance the overall complexion.
