Microneedling explained

What is Microneedling?

A tool is used to cause tiny punctures in the skin. The tiny micro-needles catalyse the skin’s own natural healing response and create ‘’micro-channels’’ for higher absorption of product. This produces and rebuilds the skin’s own collagen and elastin, resulting in a reduction of fine wrinkles/lines and overall plumping effect. Micro needling can also help tackle other skin conditions such as scarring, pigmentation, acne and saggy skin.

Anyone with incredibly sensitive skin should seek professional advice.
