The skin-piercing leads to micro-injuries, which sets off the skin healing response. This largely reduces the size of large pores. At least 4-6  sittings of micro-needling are required at 4-6 weeks intervals for results to show. The skin is numbed with the help of an anaesthetic cream prior to the procedure. The skin remains inflamed or 1 – 2 days after the completion of the procedure.Microneedling
