Insertions of the tiny, thin needles are inserted into the face which creates a micro-trauma. That micro-trauma and stimulation of the dermis skin layer sends a signal to the body to initiate the body's immune healing process. During the healing process the body will then start to create Collagen and Elastin production naturally.
