We were born with flawless, “perfect” skin — soft, smooth and supple. However, over time, due to a variety of reasons (e.g. skin trauma, ageing, lifestyle choices and more), our skin starts to develop all kinds of imperfections. The benefits of skin needling attract many of our patients to come in to address these skin-related concerns. Is it truly worth trying to achieve more vitality in your skin?
How Does Skin Needling Work?
Collagen is an essential natural protein produced by the body. It’s a significant component of the skin that helps improve skin’s overall health. However, as we age, the production of collagen decreases. Due to this, age spots appear and skin scarring becomes more visible.
Skin needling is a technique that involves injecting a series of microscopic needles into the top layers of the skin. It creates punctures to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and rapid production of collagen and elastin. The result is cellular regeneration and revitalised skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated
It can be used in practically every part of the body, but most commonly in parts where ageing tends to be more noticeable such as the face, neck, décolletage and back of the hands.
Areas, where you have scarring or stretch marks, can also be treated.
