What is microneedling? 

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin). This is a minimally invasive treatment—whether it's done in-office by a trained aesthetician, doctor.

It is virtually painless and incredibly effective. "The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. 

Believe it or not, microneedling has become hugely popular among skincare fanatics—Vogue is calling it the next big thing in anti-aging. 

7 Benefits of Microneedling: 

-reduces fine and deep wrinkles (The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin)

-repairs visible scars 

-reverses sun damage and pigmentation (Once again, collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with microneedling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.) 

-helps aging skin (On top of microneedling's ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for older men and women.) 

- shrinks pores (Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed.) 

-makes your products work better(microneedling can actually help topical products penetrate the skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product.) 

-microneedling can be done all over your body(Finally, an awesome benefit of microneedling is that this treatment isn't exclusive to the face. It can be done on any area of skin that needs to be repaired—particularly areas that display stretch marks or acne scars, like the legs, chest, back, and butt. As few as four to six sessions could make a difference in these problem areas.)
