Cosmetic Skin Needling is a treatment using a pen device covered with tiny micro-needles, which penetrates through the top surface layer of the skin, creating channels without causing damage to the skin. Treatment serums are applied to the skin via the channels formed from the micro-needles.
The treatment is undertaken in order to treat a number of skin conditions and the treatment uses the body’s own natural healing process to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crows feet, scars, acne scarring, sun damaged skin, uneven skin tone, hyper pigmentation & melasma, stretch marks etc.
The micro-needling procedure creates thousands of micro wounds triggering new collagen synthesis. It allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism so the whole procedure is all natural and fast. By creating dermal damage without removal of the healthy epidermis, healing time is rapid with quick results that will last.
