If you feel that your face is looking a bit tired, or you are feeling self-conscious about acne scars, or maybe your aged and sun-damaged skin is making you feel unhappy, then skin needling is a treatment you can have, which will stimulate skin renewal, and help the skin to look fresher, firmer and younger.
Skin needling activates new collagen and fibroblast formation, which helps to reduce lines and wrinkles and can improve the texture of the skin. The skin's natural healing process helps to restore a smoother, clearer complexion and it can also help improve many types of scarring.
Skin needling is a safe and precise cosmetic procedure, which encourages new production of collagen and elastin and it's one of the few cosmetic treatments that are suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin. The treatment is less invasive than other skin treatments, and does not need the removal of the epidermis, and these results in a much shorter healing time.
Skin needling can help with:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin that lacks firmness and elasticity
- Enlarged pores
- Acne and chicken pox scars
- Sun damage
- It can lighten pigmentation marks
- Will improve stretch marks from pregnancy or weight loss
- Improves cellulite
The skin needling instrument is a sterile roller, which gets rolled across the skin, puncturing the outermost layers of the skin to create tiny pin prick injuries which are not visible to the naked eye. These tiny wounds will stimulate new collagen deposition and regenerate new, healthy skin cells. The wounds will close within an hour, and you will see visible signs of facial rejuvenation after just six to eight weeks, and amazingly these results can continue for up to a year after the treatment. The usual process results in tight skin, fewer lines and wrinkles, with a softening and reduction in scarring.
The skin needling treatment has many benefits, including reducing stretch marks, scarring and wrinkles. It stimulates collagen and elastin and can repair, rejuvenate and plump up the skin.
