Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. It's also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and transdermal collagen induction (PCI).
How Does Microneedling Work?
As the device slides along the skin, it penetrates the upper layers of the skin (epidermis and superficial dermis) to a depth of up to 2.5mm to create tiny needle wounds. The body recognizes these wounds and responds by delivering cells that help produce new collagen and elastin fibers. We then see more youthful skin with a reduction in wrinkles and scars.
Micro-needling can be used to treat a variety of different skin conditions, including:
- Scars caused by acne, previous surgeries and burns
- Stretch marks
- Sagging skin
- Pigmentation from Melasma
- Fine and deep wrinkles
Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of the MD Needle Pen.
The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.
With Microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged, leaving the skin intact. It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.
Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

Treatments with a micro needle pen do not burn the skin (like laser), dissolve it (like chemical peels), or abrade and scrape it (like dermabrasion). Microneedling with the MD Needle Pen gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen production.
