The technique that uses tiny needles are used to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thus often referred to as collagen induction therapy. There are home devices penetrate only superficially on the epidermis, however the microneedling treatments performed in Dr. Edween's office are professional medical treatments designed to penetrate into the deeper dermis. Professional skin needling is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures, and unlike chemical peels and some laser treatments, can be safely used on many skin types, with minimal damage to the skin's surface.
