Microneedling is a procedure that uses a medical needle roller to improve acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture. It is most commonly performed on the face, neck, and chest and can be done on patients with all skin types.
The microneedling roller penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen production. The procedure takes approximately 45 minutes and topical numbing cream is applied beforehand.
For optimal results, most patients will undergo three to five treatments every four to six weeks.
