Microneedling is a minimally invasive professional cosmetic procedure that is performed in a certified doctors practice, and is used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy. It is considered effective in treating minor scarring related to acne, wounds and ageing. This will also result in the skin being brighter and firmer.
In addition to facial concerns, microneedling is sometimes used to treat stretchmarks in other areas of the body for example, this procedure was found to be effective to treat stretchmarks on the inner thigh and abdominal area
