How is removal done?

The micro needle remains above the skin with the current crossing the gap between the growth and needle to dehydrate the growth. As a result of the treatment, a scab is formed to protect the newly treated area. The normal healing process begins and when the scab falls off new healthy skin will be revealed , that will slowly take on the color of surround tissue.
