What is medical skin needling and how does it work?

Medical skin needling or collagen induction therapy is a powerful and non-invasive way to stimulate collagen growth for healthy, young skin. The function of the micro needling is to break down old collagen strands to promote removal of the damaged collagen. Micro needling create thousands of tiny micro channels in the skin. The result is 3 fold:

  • It initiates a complex chemical cascade including numerous growth factors to gradually replace of collagen over the course of the treatment resulting in restoring skin firmness and reduction of fine lines.
  • Allows up to a further 80% more of topical nutrients to penetrate deep into the skin’s fibroblast, feeding the underlying cells.
  • Increased absorption of active ingredients, combined with the micro-injuries, creates stimulated repair, release of growth factors and faster re texturing results. All within quick, comfortable treatment sessions.

Where can you use the skin needling treatment?

It can be applied safely anywhere on the face, hands, tummy and neck.

What are the benefits and results of Dermal Skin Needling?

Dermal skin needling does not use heat, nor does it remove the top layer of skin (the epidermis). Most important, medical skin needling results in the release of three key growth factors that promote natural, scarless collagen and stimulate the production of collagen, tightening the skin.

The main benefits of skin needling are:

  • Micro needling increases the absorption of topical skincare by 10 folds allowing deeper penetration into the skin’s fibroblast, feeding the underlying cells.
  • Skin’s firmness is restored and fine lines are reduced.
  • Stimulates your own skin’s collagen production naturally over time.

Results include:

  • Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet and lip lines
  • Reduces the appearance of forehead lines and frown lines
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage
  • Treats acne scarring, and reduces the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Restores UV damaged skin
  • Results in a healthy, vibrant glow

*As with all medical procedures, individual benefits and results will differ. It is important to have a thorough discussion with an experienced cosmetic doctor before you proceed to assess your expectation and result.
