I do micro-needling! I just learned about it a couple of months ago from a facialist in New York. It allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in.

About the Procedure
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a treatment with a tool containing 12 tiny surgical grade needles in the tip, adjusted between 0.5 and 2 millimeter depth. The treatment creates hundreds of invisible micro-punctures from the needles in the skin, which allows the hyaluronic acid and peptide serum applied before and after to soak in deeply.
The micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. Because it doesn’t use heat and is totally mechanical, microneedling is safe for all skin colors and types. Results are thicker skin, with a beautiful tone and texture. Vogue calls it “the next big thing in skin care.”
For even more anti-aging power, combine with platelet rich plasma (PRP).
