What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a procedure that utilises multiple sterile needles to cause controlled damage to the skin. The tiny punctures trigger the body to repair itself, creating a wound healing response that stimulates collagen and elastin production.
Advantages of Micro-needling
Micro-needling is used to treat many conditions including;
Dull skin: Micro-needling has the ability to revitalise lack lustre dull skin targeting the early signs of ageing.
Wrinkles: Micro-needling stimulates collagen production that helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles enhancing a more youthful appearance.
Scarring: Micro-needling can help build a new collagen foundation beneath acne or chicken pox scars visibly reducing uneven surface texture.
Pigmentation: Micro-needling can help to fade unwanted pigmentation due to sun damage or ageing. It is a particularly useful treatment for darker skin types.
Micro-needling treatment can also be performed on most areas of the body as well as the face.
