Medical Skin Needling

Skin needling is a non-invasive results orientated technology. This procedure uses a roller with microscopic needles between 0.15mm to 2.0mm long. It is derived from ancient acupuncture techniques. As the needles are rolled over the skin, tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response. There are no injections, incisions or stitches. As the medical grade, stainless steel needles penetrate, they effectively create microscopic trauma deep within the skin’s matrix. The skin reacts and tiny electrical signals are released which create a wound healing response. The needles and rolling mechanism are specifically designed to target and penetrate only sections (or fractions) of the skin each treatment. As a result there is less downtime, less discomfort and an almost immediate outcome.

Needling is used to:
Stimulate the production of collagen
Assist in the absorption of cosmetic products
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage
Treat acne, pimples and blackheads
Reduce the appearance of scarring, stretch marks and cellulite
Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
Treat alopecia and encourage the growth of stronger thicker hair.

The treatment is carried out using topical numbing cream. Afterwards your skin will be red but you can return to normal activities immediately. The redness can be covered with mineral make-up. Home treatment rollers are available. These have much shorter needles which only microscopically break the surface of the skin. When used with your regular skin care routine, this will assist with absorption and enable you to get maximum benefi t from the products
