Micro-needling can smooth weathered skin, help minimize scars (including acne scars), and restore a more supple, youthful appearance to the skin, all without surgery and with almost no recovery time. For many patients, the effects from Micro-needling are often nothing short of spectacular. It’s now one most popular plastic cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. Micro-needling has virtually replaced laser procedures that were popular (but painful) in the past due to its excellent results and the fact that it’s a very gentle procedure.
