Skin needling is also called micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment lead to a reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, with improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
Professional skin needling is considered to be one of the safest skin treatment procedures.
Microneedling can help with a variety of conditions
Dull skin – rejuvenate tired and dull skin and combat the initial signs of ageing.
Wrinkles – fine lines and wrinkles on the face can be visibly reduced, as Microneedling triggers collagen production.
Scarring – scars from acne and Chicken Pox can be improved and an uneven texture can be smoothed out with Microneedling.
Pigmentation – can help to fade dark patches such as pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing.
