Procedures: Microneedling

What is microneedling?


Microneedling is a procedure that rejuvenates the skin by using tiny needles to puncture the very top layer of the skin. The process is brief, usually lasting under 20 minutes, and is done after using a topical numbing cream on the treatment site.
