This book was written by the team of international authors who first described the method of percutaneous collagen induction, better known as "Needling." It provides a vivid, practically oriented, and holistic description of a highly efficient and previously little-known treatment approach for skin regeneration. Using impressive case histories, 300 outstanding didactic photographs, anatomical graphics, and convincing scientific data, the authors confirm the method’s efficacy for the rejuvenating treatment of skin conditions such as scars, lines, sagging skin, and stretch marks. This attractively illustrated and clearly structured step-by-step guide takes the reader through the basics of the method’s mechanism of action, perioperative organisation, and indication-related uses, highlighting the latest devices and providing expert practical tips.
