Acne can leave behind scars and pock marks, but Skin Needling treatment is an ideal treatment to help regenerate the damaged skin, smoothing the scars and evening out the skin texture and tone. Skin Needling treatment uses a handheld, sterilized, single-use roller with thousands of micro-medical needle-columns, and it’s passed across the skin, causing tiny micro punctures in the very first layer of skin. Each column penetrates into the dermis of the skin, which then rapidly close, enabling the skin to quickly recover.
The process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin, as well as stimulating the skin, causing it to repair and regenerate itself safely and naturally, creating smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin.
Skin Needling can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne or surgical scars
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Stretch marks
- Rough patches and texture
- Chicken pox scars
The number of treatments needed will really depend on how bad the problem is. It’s recommended you have three treatments, six weeks apart, but it’s possible more treatments might be needed. Afterwards, your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis, generating new skin cells and enhancing the blood supply, as new collagen and elastin is forming.
Benefits of Skin Needling:
- Enhances texture and tone of the skin
- It can reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulates collagen production
- It can help reduce scars and hyperpigmentation
Often you’ll notice some improvement in the skin texture about one week after your treatment, but it can take about six weeks before you see bigger improvements, and over the following months the process will continue, giving the skin a natural and long-lasting enhancement.
Skin Needling doesn’t need any downtime after the treatment. Afterwards your skin will look flushed and it might feel a bit warm and tight, but this will fade after a couple of hours and any redness will disappear over the next few days. You will notice these effects less with each treatment, as your skin will become more resilient, the more treatments you have.
Caring for your skin after the treatment is very important, and using sun protection and moisturiser regularly is vital. The cosmetic doctor will recommend you to use a moisturiser because your skin might begin to feel drier as it starts to repair itself. You must avoid sun exposure for two weeks after the treatment and use a chemical free high factor sun screen daily.
