Micro Needling/Derma Rolling is often called 'micro needling', 'skin needling' or 'collagen induction therapy'. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and non ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation.
Micro-Needling is effective in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin, pigmentation, acne and pox scarring, stretch marks and cellulite. As well as collagen induction, Micro-Needling greatly increases the absorption of nutrients on the skin, so you get greater benefits from your usual skin care products. Nutrient absorption increases by up to 300%. Which is up to 50 X more effective than anti ageing facials.
Micro-Needling is fast becoming THE treatment of choice in the quest for flawless skin. As it is not as invasive as laser treatments, and it is also much less invasive than Botox, and virtually risk free.
We recommend a course of 3 treatments or more depending on your skin condition, but you will see results after just one treatment. It will take 6 to 8 weeks to see results, so we recommend your next treatment will be carried out 6 weeks later.
