Microneedling is a non-surgical collagen boosting procedure to help with acne scarring and fine lines. It stimulates skin cell growth thus offering smooth texture and brighter complexion. It is, as the name suggests, a procedure carried out with the help of a handheld device with micro-needles that prick through the skin and encourage it to heal smoother.
The procedure consists of the following steps:
A numbing ointment is applied to the face and left for a few minutes.
A growth factor serum is applied to the face which is meant to absorb into the skin and encourage rejuvenation from within.
The handheld device is used to go over the entire face a couple of times. The microneedling encourages the serum to absorb more effectively into the skin and go deeper.
A soothing mask is applied to the face.

Other than that you do not need to make any adjustments to your daily routine.
