This technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles that create microscopic punctures in the skin in order to generate new collagen and skin tissue for a smoother, firmer, and even-toned skin. The trauma-induced targets the deeper layers of the skin in order to rebuild in which can also be used for improving the appearance of scars and encourage hair growth. While it may not be a quick fix but it can offer fairly immediate results and will continue to improve over time to see the full results of the procedure. It is considered a safe and effective method when administered by an experienced and certified doctor.
