Microneedling

Medical Micro Needling also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, works for a variety of skin conditions, including: Treatment of scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars)

Topical products applied directly after Micro-Needling can be absorbed to a far deeper level in the skin, making them more effective.

How does the Micro-Needling Treatment work?

Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure, working like a netting to hold skin cells together. It also gives skin a smooth and youthful appearance, as we have it in abundance when we’re young. As we age, collagen starts to break down.

The tiny needles used in skin Micro-Needling make microscopic channels in the dermis, triggering the body’s healing response to kick-start production of new collagen and elastin, plumping up the skin.

Collagen Induction Therapy, works for a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Treatment of scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars)
  • Stretch marks (including post pregnancy)
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation marks
microneedling

The microneedling produces channels in 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. This results in the skins thickness being increased by up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and erasing wrinkles.

There is very little down time, although expect your skin to look and feel mildly sunburnt for about 24 hours after the treatment. It will also start to flake after a day or two as the skin cells slough off. This is a normal reaction and after about a week you’ll see the new, brighter, smooth skin. A topical cream is used to lessen sensitivity on the face, so there is no pain during the treatment.
