Collagen induction therapy, more commonly known as microneedling, is one of the “newer” trends in non-invasive, anti-aging and skincare aesthetic procedures. As its more formal name implies, collagen induction therapy induces collagen production in the lower layers of your skin to make it fuller and thereby reducing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
