Does microneedling work?

Isn't poking holes in your skin damaging? How does this stimulate collagen production? I've watched a few videos, and the patient's face always looks really bad right after the treatment. Will anyone be able to tell I had microneedling work done on my face after the redness subsides? I'm curious how obvious the results are.

Yes, microneedling does work for improving skin texture and tone and can even improve scarring from surgery and acne.  The skin punctures heal very quickly and my patients are back in makeup the next day.  Several treatments are needed to achieve best results.
