Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical and non-abrasive procedure for facial rejuvenation. This involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury which then the skin naturally heals, regenerating skin without damage.
The Skin Needling treatment using a derma roller creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.
By creating dermal damage without removal of the healthy epidermis healing time is rapid with quick results that will last.
This treatment is a safe, simple and virtually pain-free. Lines & wrinkles Sun damaged & aging skin Evening skin pigmentation Lack of skin firmness & elasticity Scarring Acne & chicken pox scars .
Enlarged pores ,Sun damage, Under-eye bags, Stretch marks and Cellulite .
Skin Needling is suitable for treating all skin types including ethnic skin.
The treatment can be used to treat the fragile skin around the eyes and mouth. The micro-needling procedure creates thousands of micro wounds triggering new collagen synthesis. It allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism so the whole procedure is all- natural and fast.
A course of 3 treatments at 6 – 8 weeks intervals is recommended to achieve optimum results, however great skin improvement is noticed after just one treatment.
