What is Microneedling?
*Microneedling, is also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling or, “Dermaroller” has established a strong reputation for safe and effective skin repair and remodelling. In recent years, celebrities and everyone else have been talking about the amazing transformation that microneedling has created in their complexion. A small, hand held device which contains many tiny, fine, short needles is rolled or pressed over the skin during a microneedling session. This creates controlled, micro-punctures which kickstart the skin into its natural repair and regeneration mode. Though it may sound daunting, the process is virtually painless and results are dramatic.*
The Benefits of Microneedling:
*The ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin which is the key to youthful-looking skin, is the primary appeal of Microneedling. Because the process triggers new skin cells to generate, it helps to noticeably reduce fine lines, crow's feet, and deep wrinkles on the face or body. Since the body’s natural collagen production levels decrease with age, production stimulated by Microneedling helps to tighten loose skin, thereby visibly improving the tell-tale signs of aging skin. In particular, it is a very safe technology for people who have dark skin as they have a higher risk post inflammatory pigmentation using other treatments that damage skin. The treatment uses your body’s own natural healing process to tighten, smooth and rejuvenate the skin. Many people are looking for naturally beautiful, non-surgical cosmetic options.*
How Does Microneedling Work?
*The process of Microneedling is extremely effective for reducing the appearance of scars as it breaks down old scar tissue and stimulates the skin cells to multiply by activating the body’s natural wound healing process. Creation of hundreds of invisible micro-injuries results in increased cell turnover, collagen and elastin production without damaging the epidermis. The result is creation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as neovascularization or, improved blood supply. Within days of treatment, skin begins to plump and thicken, thereby reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.*
