Medical Grade Micro-needling
Medical Grade Micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, Dermaroller or Skin-needling) is a safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique to restore the healthy, youthful appearance of your skin by stimulating the production of collagen.
It is an efficient and safe approach to skin rejuvenation with minimal or zero downtime.
Skin needling produces similar results to ‘ablative techniques’ such as Fraxel, lasers and deep chemical peels. However, it is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the epidermis.
Healing time is shorter and there is no post-treatment sensitivity to UV light as with lasers.
Skin needling is also one of the few skin therapies that is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin and fragile skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.
HOW IT WORKS
Collagen is a protein which gives skin its structure and makes it smooth and young-looking. Micro-needling creates micro-injuries which triggers the skin’s healing response in the same way that it would normally respond to cuts, burns and other abrasions.
Skin healing encourages collagen production and this helps to regenerate and thicken the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other imperfections, giving the skin a smooth, clear, firm and younger-looking appearance.
