Microneedling: What is the skincare trend and does it work?

- Microneedling is a process in which a specialized device is used to create microscopic holes in the skin to produce skin-smoothing, scar-reducing and pigment-fading benefits.

And while the treatment has become a highly popular request at the dermatologist's office, many are seeking ways to perform the treatment in the comfort of their own homes too. 

Because of this, the Food and Drug Administration might soon be stepping in. The agency recently announced it wants to begin regulating the use of at-home microneedling devices due to perceived risks. 

Today we asked Britta Wetteskind, R.N. from European Wellness in Newport Beach to explain.
