fade scarring, boost collagen and reduce wrinkles
Microneedling is a method whereby a medical device is used to produce thousands of micro-medical needle columns in the skin. Each column allows for the columns to penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be at a certain width, for example at 0.5mm, 1mm or 1.5mm in width. The column will close rapidly which allows for the skin to recover quickly
After a microneedling procedure, your skin will naturally repair and regenerate, working below the surface in the dermis. Over time, new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced, leaving you with natural enhanced skin.
The treatment uses a roller covered with micro-scopic needles rolled over the area in four different directions, or in hashtag (#) direction. Each tiny needle will pierce the skin and cause a pin-prick bleeding and mild inflammation, which will break the connections around any scarring, allowing the new blood cells to repair any damage causing the scar to flatten and reduce as the skin will renew naturally.
The mild trauma will also stimulate the collagen and elastin in the skin promoting the production of new skin cells which in turn, will help strengthen, plum and tighten the skin. this helps with fine lines and wrinkles and generally improve the complexion of the skin as a whole.
