EmaxHealth

Can microneedling improve the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars?
The Wall Street Journal
Microneedling devices include rollers with wheels of needles and pens with a cluster of needles at the tip. The slight injury they cause stimulates the growth of collagen, the scaffolding under the skin, which then improves the appearance of some scars and wrinkles, scientists say.
