Skin needling is a procedure using multiple needles to pierce the skin in order to regenerate, rejuvenate and revitalize the skin.
HOW IT WORKS
Using a medically engineered device, surgical stainless steel needles are rolled over the skins surface to create microscopic trauma up to 2.0mm deep (depending on skin condition needle length with vary), as the skin reacts tiny electrical signals are released creating a wound healing response. Essential minerals, proteins and cell generated tissue factors are discharged creating a regenerative process.
Cells are then recreated and re-invigorated replacing and previous damage, cell division is increased and rich blood flow is stimulated.
SKIN CONDITIONS TREATED
Anti-Ageing / Wrinkles
The skin requires a rejuvenating treatment that increases its own production of collagen and elastin, to provide a stronger and more hydrated foundation to plump out, lift and tone the features.
Pigmentation / Sun Damage
The skin requires treatment that will regulate melanin production, whilst breaking down existing pigmentation thus creating a more uniform and even colour.
Scarring / Stretch Marks
Hardened Fibrotic tissue needs to be broken down so new tissue and collagen fibres can be created to fill in and smooth indentions or raised areas. Treatment of Keloid scarring should be performed by a physician.
Acne / Pimples / Blackheads
The skin requires exfoliation to release areas of congestion whilst regulating oil flow and encouraging oxygenation to prevent the proliferation of the P.Acnes bacteria.
Enlarged Pored / Seborrhoea
Sebum production needs to be regulated to prevent future pore stretching. Existing enlarged pores need to be refined for a smoother, tighter appearance.
Skin needling provides an array of medically and clinically proven results for the treatment of individual and stimultaneous skin conditions.
Stimulation of collagen, Increased cell proliferation, Increased cell regeneration, Angiogenesis (the formation and development of capillaries), Exfoliation, Increased topical product absorption, Regulated pigmentation, Reduced size of the appearance of pores, Reduced size of the appearance of scar tissue, Reduced appearance of stretch marks, Reduced appearance of cellulite.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Topical anaesthetic is applied to skin prior the procedure. The needles and rolling mechanism, likewise are specifically designed to target and penetrate only sections (or fractions) of the skin per treatment thereby encouraging faster downtime, less discomfort and almost an immediate outcome.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
Immediately following in-clinic treatments the skin may appear reddened, similar to that of mild to light sunburn. Whilst in some patients the skin may remain red and slightly swollen for 1-2 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present. If any area is aggressively treated, there may be slight grazing on the effective area which should clear up after 2 days.
A recommended skin care regime will be given to help speed up the healing process.
- Active products must not be used for at least 48 hours
- Mineral Foundation can be used if required
- Minimum sun exposure as skin is highly sensitive SPF 15% or greater must be worn
A convenient, at home skin needling device to aid cosmetic or drug infusion, exfoliation and to stimulate the skins blood flow resulting in a softer, more hydrated, firmer and revitalized skin. Use 2-3 times to begin with and then as often as desired (maximum one treatment per day) (numbing cream is not required) There is no down time with 0.15mm home care device however it is recommended to be used in the evening prior to bed to ensure no redness or irritation in the morning.
