Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical & non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create a controlled skin injury. This causes a controlled inflammation response & tricks your skin into trying to heal, which leads to the production of new collagen, elastin, & capillaries resulting in smaller pours, & firmer, healthier, younger looking skin.
It is suitable for almost all skin types & is safe for thin & or sensitive skin.
It is cost-effective & can be done on areas of skin that are not suitable for peeling or laser resurfacing, such as near the eyes.
The patient can resume regular activities within a few days (In many cases the same day), depending on the depth of penetration of the needles. Similar treatment options like laser resurfacing or dermabrasion are often associated with considerable downtime (Up to 2wks) from daily activities in the post-treatment period.
Skin needling is used as a successful treatment to perform facial rejuvenations to reduce fine lines & wrinkles, improve skin tone, texture, & reduce pigmentation.
It is also used to minimise the appearance of scars from acne, surgery, thermal burns, chickenpox, or other trauma to the skin.
Skin Needling is a procedure that uses ultra-fine needles to pierce the skin. It is also referred to as dermal needling or collagen induction therapy. The piercing of the skin creates micro areas of inflammation or microtrauma within the skin that then stimulate the production of new cells. These new cells repair via the skin’s normal repair mechanism to improve or even out ones complexion, increase collagen, reduce uneven texture, & enhance an even out your skin tone.
