Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that is used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as minimal to moderate acne scarring. The FDA Approved microneedling device, SkinPen, safely creates micro-injuries into the skin to build new collagen and stimulate the skins natural wound healing process.
