Microneedling or micro-needling is a process that involves using needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin (yes, seriously).
It may seem like the newest trend in beauty skincare, but it’s actually been around and evolving for over 50 years!
Fans of the microneedle claim it treats everything from wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dull skin to issues such as scars, stretch marks, and cellulite – although results are still dubious on that last one, so don’t get your hopes up.
However, in a 2009 study, 37 patients underwent microneedling procedures to treat atrophic facial scars (those sunken scars that result from acne, chicken pox, etc.).
