Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling may also be combined with a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or another vitamin-rich serum.

Radiofrequency has been used in medical practice for more than five decades. Radiofrequency (RF) is not like a laser, which is affected by skin color and so is a huge success with Asian skin. Anyone who feels their facial and neck skin has become loose and sagging should opt for this revolutionary treatment.
In this technology, microneedles are inserted into the skin and emit RF inside. It works by heating up the dermis without disturbing the epidermis and thus stimulating the healing process. This results in tightening and skin thickening resulting in a youthful appearance.
