Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses multiple tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue.
This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen through age or injury. But by encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too. At Croxley Cosmetic Clinic a microneedling pen is used which rotates the needles to glide smoothly over the skin.
