Is micro-needling a valid alternative for fractionated laser therapy?

Since the beginning of this century, micro-needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) has earned its place between other semi-invasive treatment modalities for scars. But is there enough scientific proof to consider it as evidence-based medicine? What are its advantages and what are the pitfalls? This workshop offers you an overview of the latest scientific proof on micro-needling, followed by a live demonstration on patients with scars. Towards the end, participants are shown how to train their skills before applying this technique.
