Skin needling, also called micro-needling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

Micro needling or stamping is not recommended if you have any of the following skin conditions affecting the area you wish to treat:
Active skin infections
Chronic skin disorders
Blood clotting problems
Poor healing
Skin malignancies
Severe solar keratosis
Raised moles or warts
Herpes outbreaks or any other skin inflammation
Areas of sunburn, open cuts or other sore and tender areas
