- Improve scars. Microneedling encourages the production of new skin cells to replace the old. This means smoother, more radiant skin. Depending on the severity of scarring, several treatments may be necessary.
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Studies have shown that collagen induction therapy with either laser or microneedling, or a combination of the two, can minimize stretch marks over time.
