Microneedling has become a popular procedure for plumper, smoother skin. Sets of tiny needles prick the surface to stimulate the growth of new collagen.
Now, a new device promises to do a better job, and eliminate the drawbacks. Stacy Randall tries to keep a youthful look, but standard microneedling didn’t deliver all she hoped for. “It didn’t really give me what I needed in the bottom third of my face, where I have more fine lines, some saggy skin, some dulless,” she said.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Davis from Davis Cosmetic Surgery says some patients also feel it leaves the skin looking too hurt and it’s an inefficient way to get anti-aging products under the skin surface.
