What does skin needling do? Put your best face forward
Bring your skin out of hibernation with Skin Needling.
Skin Needling is a non-invasive treatment that uses the MediPro Dermapen technology to gently penetrate the skin, creating tiny micro wounds. This triggers cellular renewal, collagen production and reduces uneven skin texture as well as offering overall skin rejuvenation.
With prolonged exposure to the Sun and environmental pollutants, the skin is prone to signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity due to the decrease in collagen production.
However, the controlled trauma created by skin needling reconditions the first layer of the skin by enhancing the body’s natural ability to produce collagen.
What is collagen and why is it important?
Collagen, alongside with hyaluronic acid and elastin is responsible for the resiliency of the skin tissue. This natural capability to repair and generate new skin cells becomes compromised when exposed to environmental and lifestyle factors over time. Whilst the factors that are responsible for collagen loss are often hard to avoid, by promoting its production levels, regular cellular repair and renewal is ensured, strengthening your skin’s defense against signs of premature ageing.
By enhancing the skin’s natural ability to rejuvenate, skin needling treats a wide range of priorities such as
- Improving fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing the depth of indented acne scars
- Lightening pigmentation and evening out uneven texture
Is skin needling safe?
Yes. Our treatments are performed by qualified clinical therapists and the innovative Dermapen technology only reaches the top layer of the skin as compared to other heat treatments which destroy the top layer of the skin (link to Fractional RF vs Fraxel). Invasive ablative laser treatments will remove the top layer of the skin’s surface by heating the cells to a boiling point, effectively vaporising the skin – sounds painful? The post treatment images speak for themselves – ouch!
We recommend LED Light Therapy post skin needling as it accelerates the healing process, reduces redness and encourages cellular repair, allowing you to return to your day in no time!
Shining the light on LED Light Therapy benefits
The innovative Lutronic Healite technology employs the use of LED light energy wavelengths to refresh the skin. There are two main colours of LED lights used which include:
- Yellow light therapy
Yellow light therapy reduces redness, decreasing post treatment down time.
- Blue light therapy
Blue light therapy focuses on reducing acne causing bacteria, minimising future chances of breakouts.
How long is the treatment and aftercare process?
Treatment varies from 40 to 60 minutes and to achieve optimum results, we recommend 4-6 sessions once monthly. Regular sessions will enhance and maintain the skin’s resiliency in being able to heal itself.
