Micro Needling is a revolutionary way to stimulate normal collagen production for smoothing and tightening skin, treating fine wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, cellulite and stretch marks.
Micro-needling uses needles that only penetrate 2 mm, and this causes virtually no bruising and minimal swelling. With Micro-needling you can return to work the day after the treatment without any signs except some pink skin as though you have been exposed to the sun. A series of six to ten Micro-needling sessions should be done at intervals ranging from once a week to once a month – depending on the degree of improvement that is required. A major advantage of Micro-needling is that it can be done for lax skin or wrinkles of the face, upper lip lines, neck, décolleté, arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs. It is also useful for shallow acne scars and stretch marks.
Micro-needling causes microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface layer of the skin (epidermis) and this releases platelets that are important for making blood clot when a blood vessel has been opened. The platelets release a series of growth factors which promote the production of collagen and elastin amongst other things.
