In other words, micro needles puncture the skin's surface and create small wounds called micro-channels, we then apply specialised formulated serums such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and other specialised serums, which seeps through those micro-channels to stimulate skin the production and elastin collagen, reduces pores, boosts blood supply, improves texture, aging, sun damage, firmness and hydrates your skin.
