Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. This minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective. "The micro-injuries you create stimulates 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," says board certified dermatologist and RealSelfcontributor Sejal Shah, MD. (It works the same way lasers do, only you're injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.)
