What is Micro-Needling?
Skin Needling is not a New treatment – Discovered by the Chinese through the use of Acupuncture needles. They recognised the healing power of mild trauma to the skin and body. This non-mechanical treatment offers a holistic approach to many skin problems with outstanding and incredibly quick results.
The aim of Micro-Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) is to stimulate the production of new collagen. Using the skin’s ability to heal itself, puncturing the dermis with microscopic needles triggers the production of new collagen. Micro-Needling produces channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defences to repair the skin, producing concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin.
Topical products applied directly after Micro-Needling can be absorbed to a far deeper level in the skin, making them more effective.
Medical Micro-Needling works for a variety of skin conditions including:
Treatment of scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars)
Stretch marks (including post pregnancy)
Fine lines and wrinkles
Improves tone and texture of skin
Pigmentation marks and sun damage
Does this treatment have any side effects? Side effects may include redness, flaking, and mild irritation on the treated areas. These will subside within 24-72 hours. This is a normal reaction and after about a week the new, brighter, smooth skin emerges.
Is there any down time and does it hurt? There is very little down time, although expect skin to look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment. A topical cream lessens sensitivity on the face, so there is no pain during the treatment
