SKIN NEEDLING

with Skin Inject or DermaPen

What is Skin Needling?
 

Skin Needling, is a special regenerating treatment that safely penetrates deep into the underlying layers of skin, repairing and rejuvenating troubled areas. Based on acupuncture, and using multiple needles that differ in size, skin needling kick starts the body’s natural wound healing response underneath the skin. This results in the production and distribution of new collagen to help protect your skin. The procedure has been performed for many years, and has been proven to treat a number of skin conditions and problems including smoothing wrinkles and lines and improving skin texture, scarring, and stretch marks. The face is a common area for treatment; however, other areas of the body such as the hands, neck, back and chest can be treated just as successfully. 

 

Skin Needling is a safe, tested and reliable procedure that involves creating rejuvenating microscopic punctures in the skin using a specialised stainless steel roller or pressing mechanism. The process involves multiple needles in various sizes acting together in the specific area of the treated condition. This dermal roller treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin that encourage the production of new collagen, known as collagen induction, and will progressively fill in the scar, stretch mark, or wrinkles being treated, making them less noticeable and in some cases removing them altogether. Each patient’s situation is different and results can vary. Other skin rejuvenating techniques utilise methods that can often remove the healthy top layer of skin. Skin needling creates dermal stimulation without attacking the outer layer, maximising the outward appearance of the area and speeding up the healing process at a much faster rate than other procedures. The procedure is proven to offer many benefits and also avoids some of the usual skin care related worries that other procedures can possess, such as the risk of permanent structural damage, increased sun sensitivity, skin colour loss and hyper pigmentation.

What can it treat?

The procedure is ideal for treating a variety of skin concerns including:

  • Scarring

  • Acne Scarring

  • Wrinkles

  • Uneven tone

  • Pigmentation

  • Hypopigmentation (Vitiligo)

  • Stretch marks 

  • Loss of elasticity 

How does it work?

As the medical grade, stainless steel needles penetrate, they effectively create microscopic, trauma deep within the epidermis and dermis. This encourages the skin’s own natural response to recreate and re-invigorate new skin cells, which in turn;

  • Stimulates the production of Collagen & blood flow

  • Increased Cell Proliferation & Regeneration

  • Exfoliation / Desquamation

  • Increased Topical Product Absorption

  • Regulated Pigmentation

  • Reduced size of the appearance of Pores & Scar Tissue

  • Reduced appearance of Stretchmark’s and Cellulite 

Skin Needling can be performed with:

SKIN-INJECT: Uses the process of a roller with microscopic needles which is rolled over the skin to create tiny punctures and is ideal for large areas of the body.

DERMAPEN: Auto-Micro Needle Therapy System which uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin using an automatic vibration function. The needle length can be adjusted to treat specific concerns in the skin, and is ideal for use on the contours of the face.
