What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) or collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive skin perfecting procedure. Microneedles create tiny punctures in the skin which promotes a collagen- stimulating healing process. This collagen induction improves the skin by reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and facial acne scars.
