The procedure involves the use of a device that features a numbers of sterilized fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin.The micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefor smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
