Microneedling, which is also known as CIT or Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen, a crucial component of skin health, keeps skin hydrated and youthful. Increasing collagen in the skin can produce a wide range of cosmetic benefits.

After microneedling, peptides are great for accelerating wound healing and reducing downtime like swelling and redness due to their wound-healing properties.
